Good stop for travelers

We usually hit here about lunch on the way to the mountains about 5 times a year. Food is dependably good, if not great. Wide selection of choices in meats and vegetables is a good alternate to burgers and fries. Diabetics can make a good meal with the choices

We decided to visit Ole Times on Thanksgiving Day since they were open. We knew they would have a vast selection of delicious food and they did. It was VERY busy when we first arrived; but after the initial line, there was basically no wait. They had all the typical Thanksgiving food; it was delicious, and there were no dishes... More

I go here with my family. They offer a good assortment of food that should make everyone happy. Though sometimes there is not much of a selection of desserts.

Very yummy comfort food... mac n cheese was AMAZING. Sweet tea was perfect . Rinse were falling off the bone and juicy. Everything tasted like Sunday dinner at grandmas. It had a golden corral type atmosphere, where you pay first, then pick your seat and help yourself. Very reasonably priced.. 10.00 or so pp. This particular restuarant was a bit... More

Ole Times Country Buffet On Gray Hiway in Macon, GA provides excellent variety of dishes in a pleasant atmosphere. At first glance looks like most buffets, but that is where it ends. The food on the buffet line was either freshly prepared produce and meats, or the cooks have extraordinary talent in transforming caned foods to make it look and... More

I love the food! They have a variety of soul and country cooking food that truly represents the south. The prices are a bit steep though, but other than that, it is good choice.

I have eaten at several of the Ole Time Country Buffets and this one ranks among the worst. It just did not measure up to Valdosta, Warner Robins, or Brunswick. It was average at best, but was far behind the others. Really disappointing. Probably will find another place to eat in Macon.

We LOVE the food at each of the Ole Times restaurants we have tried--Macon, Warner Robins, Dublin, and Albany. Fresh, hot, delicious food. Pans are kept well stocked. Wide variety of food to satisfy all. Great value. Glasses usually kept filled--very important to me. Highly recommend this-- and the other locations.

My wife and I had lunch on the 25th of March 2014. We went through the line paid the clerk found out seats. We picked up out plates and found that the buffet had baked chicken, broiled chicken, b-b-q chicken, fried chicken, chicken and rice and chicken and dressing. The only other meat was fried fish and broiled fish. My... More
