The is one of the best family buffets we have eaten in. There is a diverse spread of regular "down home cooking" food that exceeded our ability to sample fully. Everything we had to eat was very good, the service was excellent, and the bill was quite reasonable. One of our relatives has this as a favorite place to eat,... More

The outside looks way better than the inside. Needs a face-lift inside. And the food is just okay. There are better buffets in this small town. Check ratings and reviews and you will see.

Superb southern food - second to my mother-in-law's cooking! Remember driving in from Seffner years ago to this place. Recently drove in from Davenport. Many great veggies prepared in numerous delicious ways. Beef, chicken, pork, and fish - fried and baked. Large salad bar with soup. Desserts include sugar-free items. Good atmosphere - buffet style - friendly servers and staff.

We had visited the Buddy Freddy's location years ago in Sarasota, but we're thrilled to be headed down I-4 and see a sign for a restaurant in Plant City (East of Tampa). Down home cooking in a large buffet style presentation. Nothing here is canned or pre-prepared. From collard greens, to fried green tomatoes, meatloaf, BBQ ribs, excellent fried chicken...and...

I have lived in central Florida for 8 years and have heard of this place but never tried it until today when we happened to be in Plant City and it happened to be near dinner time. The place itself has a surrounding porch with rocking chairs,cute. It wasn't busy at all at 440 which was good for us. Seated... More

The food is good and reasonably priced. We go for lunch mostly and the crowd is usually older but we go with our children. The wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
