Country Cookin' at it's best

Cousin Gary's Family is a must stop. Country cooking and great hospitality in "Mayberry" country. You can order from the menu, have the all you eat buffet or drive through for a few dollars.

This place use to be very good, but lately it isn't worth the money. Very disappointed even after giving them several tries.

They had a breakfast buffet. It was very good. The biscuits were delicious and the french toast was awesome. The food is plentiful and the prices are reasonable. Wait staff was very friendly.

94.5% grade from Health Dept. It's okay for a quick bite. They at least serve breakfast items all day.

Visiting the area with friends stopped by looking for a quick bit. I was lucky enough to find this mom and pop location. Food was very reasonably priced and tasted great. The servers were very nice and prompt.

Our family took a ride up the parkway today and my father in law wanted to eat lunch here. I was a little skeptical at first but was pleasantly surprised. That said, I work in food service and have seen all sorts of things. As for the negative reviews, every place has bad days......but I tend to look at a... More

The service staff was very nice. The pancakes were okay. But after coming in twice to use the internet, the doors at the front were not cleaned days later and the carpets were still not cleaned either (Ugh, they were dirty)! We're talking several days later. They also were battling flies BIG time. Apparently, the locals eat the buffet and... More
