We ate here for the 9:00 PM breakfast buffet last Saturday night. It far exceeded our expectations. They would make eggs (to your liking) and Belgian waffles to order which was included in the buffet price. The breakfast buffet had breakfast meats of every kind, fruit, potatoes, biscuits, gravy and even danishes. I would highly recommend this restaurant after our... More

Parking lot was full as well as the restaurant. Huge buffet and also can order from the menu. Everything we got was very good and our waitress was very friendly and attentive. There is also an ice cream shop attached.

Awsome restaurant if you like to go back in time, oldies on the radio, sports on the TVs, and walls covered with memorabilia,and plaques. The food is really great, and if you leave Hungary, it's your own fault. The buffets are fully loaded. Both the hot bar and salad/dessert bar have everything you could want. The bananna pudding is just... More

I recently stopped here on my way through town. I saw the billboard on the interstate so decided to stop here instead of the usual fast food. I was promptly seated and asked the waitress what people liked there. She said usually the meat plus hot bar or the sandwiches. I chose the meat/hot bar. I got the country fried... More

This is a new location for Abele's and a much better one. They are famous for their food bar. You get your money's worth too! You can also order off the menu if you are not interested in self serve. Good food. I would rate it excellent, but I am leary of food bars because you have to trust that... More

I am not usually a big breakfast fan but this place had EVERYTHING! I had not had Corn Beef Hash in years and they had it and it was delicious. There were so many things to choose from. If you left here hungry it was your own fault. Will definitely return here when visiting in Morganton.

Used to eat at Abeles alot in the old location and it was a much better restaurant. Since their move, service has dropped off, food just seems to be not as good and the bigger facility features a smaller buffet area. The result on this Saturday morning, felt like being herded like cattle. I was with friends from Morganton and... More

This is simply a terrific resturant. It has a wide selection of food choices at very reasonable prices, definitely a family friendly atmosphere. The food bars are always good and the staff always friendly. If you like breakfast and you're in on the weekend then check them out after 9pm or in the mornings for a breakfast bar to die... More

Great food, friendly service, and the wait time is minimal even when they're packed and the line is out the door. Very generous portions and more than likely, more than you'll eat. We'll be back again soon.

Our family had a most stressful day, spending hours at the funeral home, the florist, the cemetery, preparing to lay a dear family member to rest. Daniel, super young man, took excellent care of our large table (11 persons). Some persons ordered from the menu, some did the buffet. The buffet could be soup and salad or add the hot... More
