“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2008

An excellent combination of great southern food and folksy charm make a stop at Casey's a must in Wilmington. The food was very good, the service was excellent, and we even got to see ownership. We were even given "coupons" for a buy one get one free buffet. We came back the next day! If you enjoy a variety of meats (chicken, roast beef, NC bbq, pork chops, etc) and veggies (greens, sweet potatoes, etc.) A good choice when you're in Wilmington. Next time I'm in the area, a visit to Casey's is in order. If there is one negative, at peak times it can get a little crowded, but I think the secret's out.

“Some of the Best Southern Style Cusine you will ever have!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2008

If you are looking for some of the best Southern Style Cuisine look no further! As other have said in other reviews, the owners, Gena and Larry are some of the most genuine down earth people you will ever meet. They and all of the staff will make you feel that you are part of their family.
You will not find a bad dish on the buffet! This is true southern food, and not for those looking for low fat cuisine! Think dishes Paula Deen would make!

“Best "home cooking" anywhere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2008

You will eat till it hurts, and not pay much for it. The atmosphere and food are down home. The owners cook and work the front with the staff, you will think you are eating at a friend's home. It is a treat for all our out of town guests and family, and a retreat from the daily grind for the locals.
