“Thought big mistake but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

I was not excited to eat at a buffet for lunch but my husband did not want fast food. First impression of paper plates and plastic utensils did not bode well. I was wrong. The food was delicious, plentiful, and inexpensive. Less than $20 purchased all two could eat of fresh cooked vegetables, fried chicken, BBQ, a drink and homemade dessert.
The restaurant was filled with locals. There is a loaf of bread on the table. Paper towels served as napkins.
If you want linens, silverware, and atmosphere go elsewhere. For good food stop at Duke's.

“All you can eat Southern BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Recommended by a friend, we made sure to stop at Duke's on the way home to FL.. Food was fresh, and there was quite the variety. The fried chicken and pulled pork were favorites, but don't pass up the Mac n'cheese, fried Cora, and corn nuggets. On second thought, don't pass up anything. But save room for dessert! At $11.00 an adult, a bargain!

“Low Budget Buffett”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

I'm not sure what all the rave is about, this is a poorly maintained, greasy buffet. $20+ for 2 adults - they offer tiny styrofoam plates, plastic silverware and paper towels at the table which was not all that clean. There were items on the lineup that I'm not sure were edible and I'm from the south where we eat just about anything! The bathrooms were filthy with no toilet paper and remnants of someone's last meal still floating... Staff was luke warm at best... We will never go back!

“this place is disorganized and food is horrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

the lines are horrible but i couldn't tell you why probably due to the fact that there isn't anywhere else to go for barbecue you get one plate when u walk in and if you can stomach it you couldn't get up there again because the line for the register and the line for buffet are the same so your forced to be rude and cut in line it causes alot of tension now on to the food the pulled pork because it can't be called barbecue is bland and tasteless cooked with no sauce the sauces that they do have are loaded with suger and every thing else is dried out by extremely to hot heat lamps horrible exspirince
