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.

The food was good, but not exceptional. The only option was the buffet which included the usual selection of vegetables, soup and salad. Fried and baked chicken along with hamburger steak were the entrees. The service was very good. Our waitress was very friendly and made sure our glasses were never empty. The buffet price was $12, tax included. While... More

If you like true Southern Cooking...then this is the place to go! Always fresh, hot dishes...and the Fried Chicken is just like Grandma's! Atmosphere is interesting with all the collectibles displayed throughout the restaurant! Only wish they would increase their dessert line with 1 or 2 more items to select from.

Went for lunch and normally dont eat that much in the middle of the day. Great buffet, food was all fresh and good. If you go, go hungry!!! I did not save room for dessert. Next time I will. I wanted to try the banana pudding or the peach cobbler w ice cream but just couldnt do it.
