Out of this world home cooking!!

We read about this place in a magazine somewhere and remembered it when we were nearby at the beach. Go early and go hungry because you will want to sample all the deliciousness this buffet has to offer! Chicken pastry, fried chicken, mac and cheese, fatback and even chittlings! Not a fancy place... read more

If you want some good tasting southern eats, this is the place to go! If you go on an empty stomach, you may come close to sampling everything on their buffet. From the pigs feet, chitterlings, chicken of all kinds, veggies, mac and cheese...I could go on and on. The flavor of everything brings out the many years of experience... More

Came here for the bbq but they had so many other wonderful items in buffet, we didn't even try it. The fried catfish and fried chicken melt in your mouth. The lima and green beans are seasoned perfectly. The greens are not too tart but they could have been cleaned a bit better. Hush puppies are way better than we... More

Great food and the service was top notch from the time we walked in to the time we walked out!!! Will come back again and visit. Just remember to come hungry because they have a large selection of food to choose from.

I am a fan of Casey's! Larry and Gena Casey certainly know how to cook southern food and serve it with a healthy dose of southern attitude. It's certainly not a four star atmosphere. The place is decorated with a mix of booths, tables, folding chairs and odds and ends spread across a couple of different rooms. I wouldn't be... More

I am from the country and grew up on home cooking and I will tell you, Casey's has the dishes down to an art! Love the variety! The lemon catfish is wonderful! The lima beans are as good as my Grandma's and until you know my grandma's cooking, you will never understand how much of a compliment that is! All... More

This wasn't my first time visiting Casey's and as always the food was delicious . The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. When I wanted lemonade to add to my sweet tea my waitress had no problem with bringing it to me. I don't eat here often but when I do I'm always satisfied. I would highly recommend this... More

My family wanted to try some authentic southern BBQ and Casey's was recommended. When we walked into the restaurant, we were a bit taken aback by the atmosphere. There were some booths and some tables. The decor was, well, not decorative. There were folding chairs at some of the tables. Yet, the aroma of the food invited us to stay.... More

Every time I’ve driven by this place it’s been busy, so knew I had to see what all the excitement was about. Casey’s felt a little cramped and the décor was a bit outdated but it didn’t matter – the place was packed with hungry patrons, and it’s easy to see why. The hosts and waitresses were some of the...

If you are looking for a pretty place with soy and tofu this isn't it. If you want a place with great food and an authentic carolina bbq buffet atmosphere this is it. I don't eat enough at buffets to get my money's worth but I go for the selection. I had my first chitlin and pig foot/feet?. Ok that... More
