“Eat Here Today!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Imagine the smell of your mother's kitchen after you have come inside from playing all day. Your appetite is ravenous, your mom tells you to wash your hands before you sit down because you forgot, and then every thought in the world is washed away by wave after wave of delicious, mouth watering comfort food, and you suddenly feel stuffed and tired.

Duff's is like that.

“No Discounts For Disabled Vets Unless In A Group”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Duff's is your standard country style cooking all-you-can-eat buffet. None of their food offerrings are really outstanding; however, their southern style fried chicken does merit at least an honorable mention. They do have a large variety and plenty to eat on the nearly thrift. From salads to your main meat self-serve courses, fruits and desserts ... if you're just plain hungry and not looking for gourmet dining or 5 star cuisine you can definitely leave there getting more than your money's worth. Nice that they offer a discount to seniors, retired military and large groups folks but when the cashier up front was asked if they extended their incentives to disable vets, I was flatly told "no" unless we were in a group. Many of the medically retired vets who have sustained injuries while in the line of duty and are now living on a limited fixed income because of their condition may find this quite ironic and in fact insulting. It seems that the gratitude for serving our country for some establishments only apply to those who have managed to escape serious injury and live to reach regular military retirement status. And for what? Here it's a free cup of coffee or a free soft drink! It may seem silly to some but even a free cup of coffee or a free soft drink to a disabled veteran on a fixed income means a lot. Not for the monetary value but for the smallest feeling of comfort we experience every time we take the next labored breath, agonizing step or can only navigate about with wheelchair assistance knowing that we were prepared to give up our lives like many of our comrades to defend and protect this wonderful country to insure that the next generation live in relative safety and peace to reach their senior years ... and to keep her freedoms alive ... including the right to deny us (disabled veterans) any smidgeon of consideration when dining out unless we are in a group.
