Butter beans, collards, okra, fried chicken and all the rest. Just go there!

This is a great place with great service and you need to eat slowly and pace yourself. Amazing selection of vegetables to the point that I have more vegetables for dessert rather than all of the enticing sweet treats on the dessert bar. Fried chicken is top notch and fried catfish is not far... read more

We visited Ole Times and the food here was excellent!!! It must have been seafood night as there was a lot of seafood on the buffet. I must say this is down home cooking. I really enjoyed our visit. Also the service was excellent!! We were a little bothered that they automatically added $5.00 to our bill but it was... More

The food here is wonderful, I am usually eating at Golden corral, but when in Valdosta, this is the place to eat. The food is always fresh, the fish is awesome and seasoned very well. The staff is very friendly and they have some of the most tastiest desserts. Make sure you visit when I Valdosta.

We stop there cause we were hungry and it was close to our hotel (Holiday Inn Express) which I rated On Tripadvisor already. The fried chicken was amazing. The owner wanted to know if I had ever had Green's before I said no. If you try them, which they are made with smoked ham hocks, put hot sauce on them.... More

It is a great place for a family to eat. Our server for drinks was always there. Never had an empty cup. We wished they would label there food in the buffet. Would of made it easier. The food was ok. A very popular place in town.

3rd trips to this place and I must say the veggies and fat back are 5 star. The fried chicken is pretty good and the fish is ok. It ends there. The meat is ALL over cooked, dry, unseasoned and tough. On steak night I could swear I rode that horse last week. Tough all cooked well done and just... More

This is a fast way to eat and have some of that "down home" cookin', which is hard to find. The waitress was accommodating. The desserts were yummy. We paid about a little over $11 for all our food and a beverage each.

This place had a big selection but unfortunately many of the dishes looked the same, breaded and deep fried. My son used a napkin to soak up the grease in the chicken. The desert selection was very good, with soft ice cream. We overheard an employee say that she found a big rat sitting on the buffet. For some reason,... More
