This Morganton eatery feeds hundreds of people weekly and feeds them well. Don't miss the cheese biscuits,bread pudding or any of their fresh veggies I took 50 people here for dinner recently and they all came away raving. The prices are very reasonable.

We were passing thru town and noticed this restaurant's parking lot was full of cars. This was around 04:00pm. We entered and were promptly seated. The server came quickly and took our drink order. She told us we could order off the menu or order a meat and get the full buffet bar. All for $ 8.79. Food on the... More

We stopped in for lunch on our way home from vacation and what a nice restaurant. We arrived about 11:45 on a Sunday morning and within 20 minutes there was a line waiting to get in. The GPS lead us to the site, almost across the street, where they used to be but moved to a bigger building. My wife... More

We love Abeles. For my birthday this year Steve took me out for a treat. I don't get liver and onions very often as nobody in my family likes it. It is one of my favorites. Abeles has an extensive menu of home cooked food and a great hot bar and salad bar! My liver and onions was amazing, as... More

I was brought here by a friend from work about 2 months ago. Since then I have been back at least 15 times (no exaggerations). I only go for the breakfast buffet, and it is awesome. They have the best fresh fruit I have ever had, and the food is constantly great. I was a little apprehensive at first because... More

We stop here often in our travels to Western North Carolina. Excellent Buffet, homecooked food. You can also order from the menu. The staff is friendly and serving. I don't think you will be disappointed if you are looking for a good meal at a good price. I loved their Old Fashion Banana Split, so yummy and enough for 2.... More

After two days at conference and eating in Downtown Morganton, NC, I opted for something close to my hotel. The parking lot was full on a Thursday night and this is very obviously a big favorite of the locals. I read online that it had a soup and salad bar which was what I was going to order, but when...
