We eat here a lot but don't think it is as good as the prices most of the time! You can get the exact same meal and each time it will be a different price. Sometimes if you question them, they will admit that they overcharged for a vegetable, etc. I got bacon one day and it was broken up... More

Worth a trip for the home cooking! Homemade banana pudding was the bomb! Lots to choose from and you really want to try every thing on the buffet! Not all you can eat though!

Love their fresh vegetables, salads. Everything is cooked well and not overly seasoned. They have great sweet tea! Service is fantastic, with them carrying your trays to a table, to providing drink refills as needed. And, should your eyes be bigger than your stomach like mine tonight, they are happy to provide you with take home box!

This place has delicious southern comfort food. Their breakfasts are really, really good. If you go, get their biscuits and gravy. You'll be glad you did.

If you enjoy traditional southern cooking, this the place for you. Great dishes like fried chicken, fresh vegetables, and sweet desserts.

This is a great way to get a taste of the south. You get home style cooking here for a reasonable price. You go through a cafeteria style line picking what you want to eat. Lots of family style food with cornbread and biscuits. Plenty of veggies and main meat dishes with things like fried chicken, okra, greens, beans and... More

Fresh fruit, bacon, sausage, ham or chicken; eggs, grits, hash-browns and cat-head size biscuits. Woo wee so good. Pick your selections and pay and enjoy. Drink refills brought to your table by servers. TVs in Dining room. Clean and comfortable.

To me, not born in the South, but coming here as an adult, there isn't much on their cafeteria food line that interests me. I always end up getting fried chicken tenders, macaroni and cheese (a vegetable in the South), and broccoli. The food line always moves slowly, so don't fill your plate until you can make a long move,... More
