Good food, semi-buffet

The food was good here. If you get the buffet, it is not the typical serve yourself buffet. You go through a line and are served cafeteria style. The price is pretty good too. They have a separate room for large groups, however, it's not very convenient to the buffet line.

We took an hour drive on a Friday night to have a family dinner at Ron's Barn. It is a southern cooking and barbecue specialty restaurant serving food homestyle on a buffet. As they have on their sign "Country Cooking makes you Good Looking!" The service was fast and we were seated almost immediately. Ron's makes their food, it's not... More

Uhhh...no. Cute on the outside. Waitress was super nice. Servers were kinda rude. Fried chicken and slaw was good, that's about it. Oh, yeah, and the sweet tea is good.

It was a buffet on the night I went. Good bbq and fried shrimp. The buttered potatoes were solid as well. A love for fried food is probably a must for Ron's....although I'm sure they have something other than fried food, even though I didn't have any. Overall a nice eat for a good price.

The food is usually good for cafeteria style and I have eaten here many times and always been pleased. It is just what you would expect from a country style place where your go through a serving line. My most recent visit has convinced me that I will never be back. We had two couples (family visit from out of... More

Have eaten there a few times. The food, while good, doesn't stand out in any particular way. Quantities are adequate, but staff seems a little bored.

We were a bit confused walking in but managed to find our way to a line. Took a few minutes to be seated but, all tables were full. Hostess said "Menus or Buffett?" And we explained it was our first time there. She explained how it works.... The buffet is an all you can eat but, you are served by... More

This is a great. Place to eat in Sanford, n.c. You need to like pork barbecue, it is the best, and the rest of the food is great too, the candied sweet potatoes are really good, the country style steak is good also. The chunky mashed potatoes are good. We go there often. You won,t be disappointed.
