Fantastic Country Cooking

If you love country cooking at its finest, you've just got to try Casey's and get an all you can eat buffet. Fantastic vegetables, fried chicken, BBQ, etc.

To start, I've lived in the south all my life and love the food... But I do not love it here! If you're looking for quantity, definitely come here. If you're looking for quality... Well keep on looking!

If crowds bother you, don't go on a Sunday, but even then it's worth the wait and lines. We saw this place and mentally made a note to check it out. Oh my, what a find...and yes, on a Sunday. The place has seen better days and the layout makes it crowded to get around. But what a treat for... More

His place is a must try if you're visiting or a local. Then old is amazing and even if somthing has been left outs be lie there's always plenty of other food to choose from. Mac and cheese and bread pudding are a must try. Fried clams and chicken are great too. Can be a little salty but hey it's... More

We stopped here the last time we were in Wilmington because hubby wanted his barbecue and supposedly there is none better than in the Carolinas. He only likes barbecued chicken though, which not every restaurant has. This one did though, and we got in just ahead of the church goers that Sunday. People were flocking in there and they must...

This was BY FAR the best buffet/soul food restaurant I have ever visited. Almost everything I had tasted exactly like my mother's cooking. Whether it was the pork bbq, fried whiting, chicken salad, or pecan pie - it ALL was a hit for me. This will definitely be on my must-have list when I return to Wilmington.

If you long for your momma's home cooking or great southern eats, I believe you've found them at Casey's. This is not the BBQ joint, I have assumed I was driving past for the last 2 years. This is the real deal county eats ... in a nostalgic setting, that adds to the charm of this piece of Americana.

In town with the kids for SB & we were seeking something a little different from the typical dinner spots. Well this place was perfect. It's a buffet so there were so many options, even for 3 picky kids. Kids were skeptical but ending up loving this place. It's awesome southern cooking. My 12 yr son even ordered kool-aid, as...

One word: Catfish, that's all that matters!!! Delicious! I'm not typically a fan of buffets but I read the reviews and this place was recommended by so many that I tried it. Excellent food, excellent service, can't wait to go back!
