My family and I travel through this area a lot, and this is a common meeting place for us. We love the food; it always tastes authentic and homemade - there's something for everyone in the family. No excuses for leaving here hungry, that's for sure! And we've always had quick, friendly service as... read more

We have been here twice and both times I have a problem with the food not being overly tasty and cold. There is not a lot of variety to choose from. Would prefer Golden Corral over this place any day.

I used to come here a lot over the years, but lately Ole Times may be over the hill. The pans are larger than most buffets but the choices are getting smaller and smaller. At best the have 4 meats and a couple of vegetable. The flavor is not what it used to be and service is sub standard now.... More

En route home to Florida when we stopped in for lunch. Wait staff was quick and friendly, buffet line was clean with staff constantly wiping things down. No grease on floors, and restrooms clean too. Now then, Southern fried chicken is terrific, desserts all very good, soft-serve ice cream available, sides were all hot and tasty, this WILL be on... More

My wife and I will drive miles out of our way to stop into the Ole Times Buffet. The Fried Chicken is superb and all the veggies are seasoned great. If your driving on I-75 in south Georgia, definitely stop into this place for lunch.

After reading all the positive reviews, I was expecting real southern home cooked food. Not so fast. The buffet is large, but some of the dishes missed the mark. The green beans were canned, as were many of the vegetables. Including the creamed corn which was pretty bad. The fried chicken and baked chicken were good, but the chkn n... More

One of the best home style resturants around. If you like Southern style food. You will love Ole Times Country Buffet. Great price, great service, and always a great smile from your waitress.

If you have ever had good southern cooking then you will experience it here. They have fresh fried okra batter with corn meal, fresh lima beans and peas and they are cooked to perfection. Service was great and plenty to choose from on the salad bar or food bar. I make my meal on the vegetables. I try to stop... More

Not a fan of buffets but this town 'rolls up its side walks' at 5 PM. The only other choices were a Mexican Restaurant and Chains. It was recommended by the girl in the pecan store across the way. Now that is a good place to get some gifts to take back home. The walls are beautiful pine and it... More

When we got here, wasn't really sure we wanted to eat at a buffet type place. But, the food was fresh, the serving areas clean and well presented. Salad bar was well stocked and fresh too. Plenty of desserts. Service for drink refills was very good too. Overall, while I am not a huge fan of the buffet category, the... More
