Very good home cooked meals! You go through a line choosing from a variety of meats and veggies. Menu changes daily. Can sit down and eat or take it with you.

Great Southern food at reasonable prices. Fast "walk up counter service" casual setting. Plenty of tables and free refills on drinks. We ate here 3 times in 3 days! We took 3 teenagers the last time for lunch and they all enjoyed the great food and wonderful desserts.

This place was recommended by the desk clerk at the hotel. The meals are priced similar to the old "blue plate plus two". You enter and progress down a line similar to a cafeteria. You have a nice choice of salad items. Then the meat and vegetables. They are served to you. I selected a country fried steak, Mac and... More

The food at the Oil Lamp is always good. There is something for everyone as they have several meat choices as well as numerous vegetables to choose from daily. On Thursday and Friday nights, they offer several additional choices from the kitchen. The smoked ribeye is very good. The price for the ribeye is reasonable as well especially if compared... More

LOVE this establishment and food choices! There is something for everyone and staff is so friendly. Don't forget a slice of pie or cake---best ever and the sweet tea is pretty good (and they do to-go cups!)!!!!

A desk clerk at a local motel told me about the Oil Lamp Restaurant and said, "It's like having home cooked meals away from home." I found them on the Internet and found they are open Monday-Friday and they have hot and cold foods. items change daily but the food is always well-prepared and tasty. They offer desserts in addition... More

Recommended by friends, great restaurant. They have different hours than most places, so be sure to check before you go. Buffet style food, but they do have made to order platters, too. Pies are incredible and you can't beat the value.

This restaurant is a favorite of my children and elderly parents. It's a cafeteria style restaurant, with a selection of a few meats and vegetables as well as a plethora of desserts. My mother loves the turnips greens and my children, no surprise, love the pies.

This place has a serving line you go through and tell them what you want. You take your tray to the table and sit down to eat. There were several meats to choose from and lots of home cooked vegetables. The desserts are wonderful! The total price for a full meal and drink, was under $10. It is a very... More
