"A little overrated"...

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... read more

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 well.

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

Food was good quality. True southern style buffet. Desert bar average. But salad bar and main courses above average. Especially good was the catfish, sweet potatoes, and shrimp. Xandros was a good waitress...always had our beverage full. We were there on 01/02/15...5pm. Would def. Go again.

Turned onto the exit for lunch. This place was packed so we knew it had to be good. It was a little more $$ than we expected but there was a LOT of food. Very southern cooking! Only things keeping it from 5 stars is the desert bar was lacking and the server was not social.

Something for everyone. Nice salad fixings. Tons of veggies to choose from. Only thing missing was some grilled fish. But several other meats to choose from. Dessert bar also. Always enjoy this place.
