“Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Not the greatest food, but it is popular and has been for years making it worth a visit.
Liked the variety, disliked having to pay more for a soda

“Satisfied”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

Good value. Restaurant is old but really good food makes up for lack of atmosphere. Buffet had all the stuff I was looking forward to when they advertised southern home-cooking buffet: fried chic, pork chops, okra, and my personal favorite, corn bread and pinto beans cooked with big pork hocks! And then pecan pie and carrot cake included in the dessert offerings. Did not get to go there for the breakfast buffet but would recommend giving it a try as the Shoney's across the highway was horrible.

“Good food, bad rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

Most hotels have powdered eggs and pork meat for breakfast. This motel features a great country kitchen with real food.

Liked- real eggs, corned beef hash and grits. Other items as well offered buffet style.

Unliked- the hotel

“No Doctors please!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Best true Southern cooking I have ever found. Cooks are local folks that have prepared this type of food their entire life. If you have diet concerns, probably not your place. If you are up for true Southern food and service at a more than fair price this place is the place!! ( Thursday is senior healthy food day, I try to avoid it then. I can get salt free salads anytime)
