We stopped in around 1:30 pm on a Friday for the lunch buffet. I was of the understanding their weekday (M-F) lunch buffet was around $8 per person excluding beverage. We were charged $10 and it appeared they had out their full buffet. With the exception of Sundays I thought most places scaled back their buffets until dinner. In the... More

Since we are semi-locals we decided to try them again. I love BBQ and that is a drawing point for me. We arrived about 5:30 pm and they were very busy. The whole hog BBQ was picked pretty good but still had plenty of meat to choose from. Problem was....it was not even warm....I don't like cool BBQ! The rest... More

Down home style buffet, The basics nothing fancy, but very tasty. You also could eat of their posted menu. Certainly didn't experience the noise level (high) you may have at other chain restaurants, which are good eats, however it's hard to have conversations. I also witnessed a lot of take-out orders. We ate on a Wednesday evening (6:00) in route... More

Ok for out of the can country food. Pig picking would be a pleasant experience for those traveling from the North and South that aren't a custom to such Southern delicantcesy. The price is more than fair. Try it once. You have to eat somewhere.

The buffet is small but has alright food choices. Staff were friendly but did not have to engage because they left drink on table.

First time here. Try to do local establishments rather than chains. Parking lot was full. That was a good first impression. Pay as you go in before you are seated. All the food was good. Buffet price was great. It was cheaper than most. Service was quick. Nice food selection and it was hot.

The buffet items are not labelled so I had no idea what some of the items were. I liked the hush puppies and fried chicken best.The green beans were over cooked. There is a salad bar and a dessert bar. The selections were limited. Oddly, the BBQ was next to the dessert so I missed it. The cost of the... More

This is southern style buffet with bbq. If you leave hungry it is you're own fault. Good taste on the Meat and vegetables. They leave a pitcher of tea on the table. The girl that took our money had a bad attitude but everybody else was polite and seemed to enjoy working there.
