Tuesday is the day I Go for the liver and onions! The normal buffet is rather good also. The time of day that I go, the food is fresh and very tasty. If you go before 530 your beverage is included with your meal.

Great food, great atmosphere. Waitress friendly, kept table cleared. Always a full glass of drink of your choice. Plenty different foods to chose from. Meatloaf was excellent.

Popped in from the interstate. We had no idea it was a buffet. Not everything is good, but most is! The fried chicken was delicious. Some of the sides needed spicing up - salt mostly - but many are very good. Loved the corn casserole and the broccoli casserole. The strawberry shortcake was FANTASTIC! We will do it again next...

I stopped at Buddy Freddy's for dinner while traveling. The food is average for a buffet. It is more like a smaller version of Golden Corral. The service was great. Our server was attentive and polite. Certain items were better tasting than others. I like the face there are real veggies on the buffet. It is a place for the... More

Always a good choice if your hungry for good southern food. Service is pleasant and efficient. The place is clean and you usually do not have to wait too long even at their busiest times.

New Year's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, and the like. The food is excellent, the staff top quality. The buffet selection is very good - but there is a wider selection at the Homestyle Buffet on Redman St. With several food allergies, gluten-dairy-tomato-pepper-potato, I have a tough time selecting foods at this restaurant: lots of gravy, fried foods, and southern style...
