Staying with family, this is where they wanted to go. The kids were able to pick what they wanted to eat. There was lots to pic j from. The only thing I did not like was that the items were not labled so you had to guess what it was if you did not know. They service was great, and... More

They had great food choices and great waitresses who took care of you. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone passing through the Valdosta area.

The buffet was huge and had a ton of food on it - we thought we had really hit the jackpot, but one plate was enough to dispell that illusion. While there was a tremendous variety of items, overall most foods were lukewarm, and not seasoned well. It was a real disappointment.

Me and the wife drive all the way from Tampa every two months just to eat there. The food has that good country seasoning and the atmosphere has that down home feeling. Price is good.

If you like southern homestyle cooking this is a great buffet. Pork rines, fried chicken, and even gizzards on occasion grace this buffett. They also have plenty classic favorites like blackeyed peas or lima beans cooked in bacon grease or mac and cheese. The salad bar is ok. Lots of parking and can even accommodate buses if it's not crowded.... More

This buffet seems to be a meat-eater's paradise, but there is good food for the vegetarian too. There is a comprehensive salad bar with good lettuce, fresh veggies, cottage cheese and more. The sides include a number of vegetables with no meat, including fresh cream corn, baked sweet potatoes, field peas, squash, okra/tomato/rice, and more. If you aren't picky about... More

I never know what to expect before going to a place like this, but we were passing through and my husband's grandfather always loved this place before his passing so we decided to give it a try. It was ten bucks a person and we weren't charged for our two year old. Two bucks for a drink. The servers kept... More

Thought we'd try something different from the franchised chain of restaurants. The welcome and service were very good - but the food was a mixture of many things (many we didn't know what they were....). Some of the buffet items were only tepid... and there seemed to be an excess of chicken... Notwithstanding, we had plenty to eat and there... More

This little place is the best of the best! The staff is extremely friendly, the food is hot and fresh and you could possibly hurt yourself trying to taste all of the delicious food they serve! We ate there one night while we were there Friday-Sunday, and we WISHED we had eaten here both nights we were in town. There's... More
