good breakfast bar

They should offer more than one meat with the soup, fruit, and vegetable bar; but overall the food is very good for the price and the atmosphere is very family friendly.

We had dined at this restaurant previously when it was at a different location. While dining there then we were told that the restaurant was moving a short distance away into an old steakhouse property. We were afraid that this restaurant would lose its down home appeal in doing so. Boy, were we surprised! Everything is better. The same down... More

Good food but a little expensive for what you get. I eat here once in awhile but better choices in town for the money.

We really enjoyed Abele's. The menu is very big with something for every taste. I had the chicken stir fry with rice which was very good. My husband tried the hot veggie bar and was pleased. Our kids had the chicken wings, grilled cheese and ribeye steak. All were very good and in large portion sizes. Milkshakes to end the... More

We recently ate at Abele's the first weekend in June 2015. It was Saturday night, we were seated in a booth. Since they have not been moved too long you would think the seats wouldn't sink too bad just yet, but they did. I ordered just the hot bar. The hot bar was half empty. The worst part was the...

I usually don't go to family style, meat and three restaurants but I stopped here because of a recommendation. Great salad bar, hot bar and homemade pies. The food was really outstanding but what sets this place apart is the friendliness of the staff. Hands down, nicest people I have ever dealt with in a restaurant. Two thumbs up to... More

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. I live an hour away but I've got to go back for breakfast some morning.

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
