Come hungry, only complain about how stuffed you are upon departure

This restaurant has been reviewed 150+ times, so there's little I can add. It compares VERY well to another adjacent county's most-famous Eastern NC-style BBQ house also offering a buffet (and a smaller salad bar). The Southern/Soul Food offerings are not for a calorie-counter, but are comfort... read more

This place is HOG HEAVEN. Everything from food to service is excellent. The buffet remains well stocked and always clean as the little piggies go to the trough. Service is as close as an empty glass of tea. The prices are buffet average and little steep to eat every day so it's a real treat to go on occasion. Go... More

Very basic BBQ buffet, good for large parties/families. I especially enjoyed the Southern-style banana pudding .

The food was not great, but okay...for the price of $11.79 I expected there to have been a better selection and a better taste. I have been here before but never did the buffet just the carry out. Will stick to carry out.

The buffet is always crowded, but plenty of choices. Pretty good fried chicken, and the pulled pork is the same as you'd expect from any of the other multitude of eastern-NC BBQ places around the area. I would put the food and service just below Wilber's which is just across highway 70. I do like the fact that they have... More

We stopped for dinner and all 3 of us ended up getting the buffet. They had a great selection of food. Meats, bbq, seafood, fried chicken, salads, desserts just to name a few. You can't beat it for the price. We do plan on returning when back in the area. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Had the lunch buffet during a work meeting. First off, the server was snappy and short and was not very friendly at all. I really enjoyed the salad bar. Great salad selections. The vegetables: Corn, Lima Beans, Green Beans....just canned vegetables poured into a big warming dish and sitting in hot water and stewing on the buffet line. Tasteless, mushy... More

Mccalls is a staple in Wayne County! If you love BBQ, hush puppies, fish and more then this is the place. They serve 100% southern cooking. The price is somewhat steep but its worth the food you get on the buffett.

It was between this place and Wilburs as the go to place for real NC BBQ in town. This is a huge place and the waitress recommended the buffet as the right choice. The BBQ chicken and pulled pork were fantastic, but the side dishes were even better. Crabcakes were wonderful and all of the seafood choices. We though it... More
