Stopped in on the drive to hilton head. Good place to stop for quick cheap meal with lots of options. My husband really liked it but my kids and I just thought it was ok. I bet if we were more into that type of good we would have liked it more. Plus I am not big into Buffett meals.

Down home southern cooking done right. Buffet has a wide variety of food from veggies, salads, meats, dessert and good ol sweet tea. Not the place for ambiance, but sure does have good food at a great price.

No buffet so completely captures the feel of Sunday, after church dinner in the south. Incredible selection including the types of BBQ, fried chicken, ribs, and the list goes on and on. Variety and quality on one bar. Save room for the banana pudding.

Hands down best buffet, prices are great. One of my favorites the pig pull so fresh and tender. Best collards and green beans. Mac and cheese on point just like my grandma used to make it. Went on a Sunday had a line but got seated super quick. New favorite spot with the family that's for dang sure.

Excellent food and a wide variety. The pulled pork was my favorite followed by the beef brisket. Collard greens were cooked to perfection and hush puppies were tasty. Awesome down home barbecue!!

I was skeptical at first because there was a line out the door when we got there, but it moved fairly quickly and once you get inside they assign you a table so you don't have to hunt for one. The food on the buffet was plentiful with tons of options. My favorite were the ribs! Delicious. Your drink is... More
