Still good southern food buffet

Even without Donny the food is still good. The menu is about the same with the same tastes as before. Food and drink for about $7.50. For the price it is a very good deal and provides you with many choices. We went on a Sunday for lunch and had fried chicken, meatloaf, small fried shrimp, fried... read more

Donny sold this place. The food quality dropped. We always loved coming here, but stopped. We missed Donny and the great food. Thought we would give it another try, even tho Donny was gone. Seems that the new owners have finally got it!. The Chicken Pot pie tasted just like we remembered!..The service is still great! We will be coming... More

Food here is just average but it is a good deal for a quick fully cooked meal. Not as good as home but still a good inexpensive meal.

I wanted to post an update to my previous review. We are sorry to say Donny sold this restaurant and it has gone a bit downhill with the changes the new owner has made. We used to eat here very frequently, but our last few visits confirmed that it just isn't the place we used to love. Several of our... More

This is a great home cooking restaurant. I would recommend it to anyone. They have great real home cooking. The prices are very affordable. In comparison to eating fast food you are not going to have to pay much more for a home cooked meal. They are doing great food for an all you can eat buffet. In comparison to... More

We stopped here on the return trip from Florida. The food was good, nice selection of items in the buffet. The servers were beyond friendly. I would recommend stopping in here if you are in the area.

I'm not sure this can be considered home cooking or even southern cooking. I really expected more from all of the reviews I read. The food was very bland and most tasted like it came out of a can. I can say that the price was decent though but I won't visit this establishment again. You can get the same... More

Food was decent. They do have kids prices which we were wondering about before we got there. Nothing was bad. We have 1 child with a milk allergy so we had to bring him food from elsewhere. We weren't expecting a country type buffet to have stuff made without butter or milk anyway. Sweet tea was good. I liked the... More

Teh buffet includes many fresh foods including fried chicken, mashed potatoes, fresh salads-cole slaw, macaroni salad, crab salad and desserts like ice cream, pecan pie and cakes. Food is always fresh and hot as they continuously bring smaller refill portions so the food it not sitting around and drying out. The personnel are very nice and keep your drinks filled.... More
