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.

Ask anyone at the Prime Outlet stores in Fayetteville for a good place to eat after an afternoon of shopping and most likely they will tell you to go to Robbins Nest in Selma. They have a very good size buffet with some good country cooking at a very reasonable price! The sweet tea is great too! There was a... More

An enormous selection of food to choose from and all of it is good. If you don't want to eat-in, you can takeout (they just weigh what you get). I always go here when I'm in the area. Good home cooking.

My wife and I stopped in on a Saturday night. The buffet was filled with excellent southern dishes. The staff did a great job of keeping the buffet filled with fresh hot food. You even get a pitcher of tea on your table, which is always a plus. The chef from the kitchen even came out and dined with my... More
