Good Lunch!

We like to dine in the local cafe's whenever possible, so when we spotted this one we said "why not?" We had a great waitress who was very accomodating and kept our drinks replenished. I had the foot long chili dog and I can assure youy it was not one of those skinny county fair wienies it was... read more

We came here on a Sunday after church. We had a group of 10 and the lady that seated us rolled here eyes so many times I thought they were going to get stuck in the back of her head. Sad thing is I really think this was the owner... The entire time she pointed and whispered to one of... More

If you're looking for food like your Grandma served after church on Sunday's, look no further... you have found it here. For the Sunday buffet, there is standing room only. You will find foods like: Fried Chicken, Turkey, Dressing & Mashed potatoes, Ham, Roast, New England Clam Chowder, Corn bread, Candied Apples, to name a few we've seen over the... More

Stopped off in Elizabeth City for one night and spotted this place as we drove to our motel. After travelling down the east coast from NY this was the best meal we've had in days. We all had the buffet and excellent value for money and great choices. The fried chicken was delicious. Waitress excellent too. Would thoroughly recommend this... More

If you want some really good home style cooking, the lunch buffet at the Circle II is hard to beat. I first went there for the great barbeque and fried chicken, and I found the other food on the buffet to be just as good. There is a good variety of items, some of which you don't find in other...

Okay, it's a greasy-spoon Southern diner, but it has a Greek twist and is the only place in town where you can get a decent gyro with a side of sweet potato fries. Ask for extra feta cheese, it goes great with the gyro. And the tzatziki sauce tastes homemade. I've had a few of their other dishes and they... More
