I didn't like the buffets. The place didn't seem clean. Makes no difference now, since it's out of business. Chick Filet will be remodeling and taking over the real estate there.

I won't go into great detail but this is the WORST buffet I have ever eaten! I should have known there might be a problem when the restaurant only had 5 tables eating at 12 noon on a Friday. For a chain restaurant this one must be ignored by the parrent company as I have eaten at other locations owned... More

We were traveling on Thanksgiving Day and decided to take the short trip off I20 and eat at Ryan's. We've always liked them in the past and hoped it would be as good as it was. We got there about 2:00 PM and it still had a fair number of customers. They had run out of turkey, or at least... More

We will not go back here - We ate here a few years back, and it was pretty good for a buffet style. The last time we ate here, we said we'd never go back. The food was tasteless, old, not good at all.

Went there today and the food was awful. Had a hard time deciding what to eat not too many choices. The corn bread wasn't done, the bread was like a rock, whatever the chicken pieces were tasteless, the fried okra cooked in stale grease, green not cooked throughly, black eyes peas no taste them. The deserts were like you baked... More

Yes, I was disappointed! My excitement about eating here has gone straight down the drain! I chose fried fish, greens, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoe souffle, rice, black eyed peas and a few salads. I could not believe how horribly tasteless everything (except the b.e. peas) was! The sweet potatoe souffle was a disasterous joke! Do you thing adding marshmallows makes... More

It's hard to believe that the company that owns Ryan s also owns Old Country Buffet. I think Old Country Buffet is a dump with poor food quality. The few times we have eaten at a Ryan's we found the place clean and the food of very good quality with many selections are a reasonable price.
