Southern Food Buffett

This popular lunch buffet has all the Southern food one could ask for. While some of the main items change daily, the fried chicken is there daily and is excellent. We enjoyed the vegetables, but some of them could have been hotter. The green beans were great as was the broccoli, cheese and rice... read more

My husband and I eat here about once a week. As a rule, I don't like buffets - the choices can be overwhelming and I usually leave feeling miserable. This place is different. Because each day has it's own menu, you learn which foods are your favorite and what day to go to get them. Everything for each given day... More

They have a good salad bar. The food bare varies daily. Every day the have great fried chicken and real mashed potatoes. Ther have a good variety of vegetables. Some days they have additional meats like fried pork chops, ribs, Mexican casserole and much more. They have ice cream, cobbler,, and cake for desserts.

My family and I went there immediately after church. We wanted to beat the crowds! It was already hopping at 11:15am. There was a large assortment of vegetables, fried and grilled chicken, and meatloaf. There was also a salad bar with green salad and lots of choices of toppings. There was also potato salad, corn salad, etc. There was a... More

Wonderful Sunday buffet...excellent Southern style fried chicken....great vegs... Salad bar...too many items to name. Also open some nights and lunches. My husband and I eat here at least twice a month. Excellent service. If you arrive and see a lot of people waiting outside, don't leave...the turnover is pretty quick.

Great buffet with chicken and home cooked food. Always good, but the buffet is over at 2:00pm. I live near this restaurant and eat there somewhat often. The price is good also it's about $11.00 drink included.

From the time we walked in the door we felt at home. The service was great. We never had to ask for anything they were constantly checking to see if we needed anything. The food was great and the buffet was constantly replenished with fresh food. Again this is southern home cooking so do not expect anything else. Also great... More

Down home cooking. Food is actually seasoned unlike most buffets who forgo seasonings for cost I imagine. Wish the salad bar was a little more expansive.

Buffet and family style, the food is Southern and delicious. Unique decor surrounds and the antiques can be purchased if one catches your eye!
