Buffet of the STARS

First thing you'll notice about this place is there's a thousand vintage signs which make the atmosphere nice and kitchy. Second thing you'll notice is the enormous display of food on the buffet line just waiting for you to slip-and-slide into. The place is large, the staff is friendly and fast... read more

Famous for their fried chicken. The grilled is equally delicious. I love their veggies. They are well seasoned not just dumped out of a can and heated like at so many buffets. So happy the owners opened the restaurant in Hattiesburg when their building in Purvis was kinda kicked out from under them. Would have hated to lose the deliciousness!!!... More

We were visiting with our daughter over the weekend and went to the moviestar to eat. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity of food at this buffet restaurant. We each enjoyed their vegetable buffet and everything was excellent. We could have had the meat also, but chose vegetables only for this trip. The price for a full... More

Delicious food! The only downfall is that the place was crazy busy when we went, but that's also a testimony to how great the food is. The service was great. We especially enjoyed the fried chicken!

I'm a little leary of buffets, but this is absolutely worth the stop. Food was very tasty and there were a lot of choices to choose from. Service was good even though the place was packed in a Sunday after Church. Definitely going again.

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 casserole. While the choice of deserts... More
