I have only been to breakfast but it is so worth stopping in. The food is absolutely delicious and the service is very friendly. Its really hard to find places that serve chipped beef and I was so happy to see they did. They have a nice fruit selection too. One day I will have to try lunch or dinner

Just good down-home cooking with fair atmosphere. Service was average, quite busy, very noisy, and considerable food scraps on the floor.

My wife and I popped in for the first time on Wednesday afternoon for lunch. We enjoyed the setup of the restaurant. They have great whimsical signs throughout the place which will provide you with some good laughs. They have a selection of old time candies as you check out. They have an ice cream stand with a nice selection... More

Abele's always has the best buffet! Their new location has much more space, but still is very busy no matter when you go!

We felt the breakfast buffet was great. Lots to choose from and excellent quality. It is not quaint like the old place and yes,the bar was being... More

I was on my way home from Alabama and had to stop by a bank. The bank personnel referred me to Abeles and this was the best food I have had in a very long time. I am on the road most of the time and eat out 3 meals a day every day. I wish Abeles and the friendly... More

My Family and I have eaten at Abeles many times. The old location was much better than now, it's lacking something and I'm not sure what. The new location has less selection, Meat doesn't come on the supper buffet, that has to be ordered and will cost extra. The Service and Selection needs improvement.
