French fries are a vegetable

Seriously - you know you are in the south when you can order hush puppies and French fries as a vegetable. Seriously. Seriously.

They are only open 3 days a week. This is a favorite for the locals. The buffet dinner for $10 with about 5 or 6 different meats, vegetables and desert can't be beat. Good Southern cooking.

The wait staff was really friendly. The hushpuppies were my daughter's favorite while I really liked the fried chicken. I have to go back to try the BBQ and Seafood. The only problem is that when its busy, you can wait a bit for the food but that's fine with me.

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.
