Comfort food /soul food

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... read 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

On a raw, cold, and rainy day traveling in Georgia, Old Times Country Buffet in Macon was really the spot to stop and take the chill off! Once again their fried chicken livers (Hey! Don't knock 'em till you've tried 'em!) hit the spot. Along with their creamed corn, fried okra, green beans, cabbage, and fluffy yeast roll and several... More

The restaurant is located conveniently of I-16 in Macon, Georgia on Gray Highway and plenty of parking is available. The price is very reasonable. On a weekend day there is plenty of choices including some home cooked vegetables from the south , barbeque, steak, shrimp and a well filled cold salad bar with plenty of choices. The atmosphere is very... More

Yesterday I had quite the delightful culinary experience at Ole Times Country Buffet in Macon, Georgia. Hmmm..."culinary" might be too fancy a word to use to describe the meal that I enjoyed with my husband at Ole Times. However, the meal was fantastic, considering the fact that I love down-home Southern cooking. I was raised on it and on many... More

Pretty cheap grub, all you can eat. Great place to bring the family to when they come in from town. All American food, not the healthiest of choices, but you can also pick to eat the healthy food. Not really service oriented, but you get to get your food from the get go. Which I like. The kids can eat... More
