Nice

Four bus drivers stopped here on the way back to Nashville. Really good buffet. Fried chicken, meat loaf, ham, lots of veggies and good crowd. We were in and gone in a little less than an hour. Servers were very nice and the pace has a gift shop along with it. Good place to stop.

Amazing truck stop. I would say one of my favorite places now. They have a place where you can let you're dogs run. Store is really cute and the restaurant has great food! I couldn't believe 2 people ate a great meal and it came up to $15.70.

We stopped here on the way to Alabama. Read very conflicting reviews and I can see why. This is a truck stop. We didn't expect fine dining. Amanda, our server, was super nice. I opted for the buffet after finding out the ham and beans was just beans cooked in ham juice. :( The buffet was ok. Iceburg lettuce and... More

I've drove by here lots of times and never stopped. On a business trip I was riding with the fellow worker and says he stops by all the time and never had a bad meal. He was right I had a fresh turkey club and fries and they were great. Clean bathrooms and even sell cured hams in burlap sacks.... More

Driving down I-65 and saw the sign. It just hit me, so I stopped. The ribs were good, good sauces available, but needed to be a little more spicy to bring out the taste in the ribs. The hot slaw needed a little more bacon in it. Plenty of tea

12 athletes and the coaches stopped here on our way back to Alabama. The food was great, we all cleaned our plates. The service was another matter entirely, the waitress was extremely rude upon our entrance to the restaurant even though it was at least an hour till close, which we made sure of prior to bringing our large party...

Most places you go the barbeque is pre dressed. Here you put your own slaw and sauce on the sandwich. It was very good on the pork sandwich. Wife and I ventured out a little and also tried smoked bologna sandwich. This is not to be missed. 2 sandwiches 1 smoked bologna sandwich taters and 2 drinks 6under $15. You... More

We were on a very long journey and stumbled upon this place. So glad we did! Great food! Great prices! Great service! Our waitress was so nice. She gave me a carnation for Mother's Day. Stop and eat here.

My husband and I stopped by here on the recommendation of our camping hosts. The buffet was good. My husband had the meatloaf and sides. I had the chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans. The chicken and green beans were very good, the potatoes were OK. The service was friendly and helpful. The meal was inexpensive but good.
