Really cool concept. Advertised as a buffet. You get sat at a round table with a lazy susan in the middle of the table with dishes of sides,main dishes, and deserts with everyone helping themselves. Food was really good. I can't believe it's been there for 40 years and I've just discovered it.

If you want great food at affordable pricing with a family atmosphere with a large lazy susan to refill your plate and just simply tired of the standard border plate chain restaurants. This is your place. Plenty of room for a large party, family or just a date. Found this place 20 plus years ago, I sometimes forget this jewel! You always leave full and satisfied!

Buckner's honors our seniors when they reach 90 y/o with a free dinner on them. What a lovely gesture of respect that is rarely seen anymore. You will not be disappointed by making Buckner's your place to dine. The food delish, the chicken perfect!! Service is always friendly. Thank you Buckner's for your service to our traveler's and our community.

The meal was excellent, always great homemade food. Servers great, always coming around and asking if you want more chicken, (the absolute best), vegetables,etc. All you can eat and a very friendly atmosphere! A great treat!!!

This place has been around a long time and I don't go often because you often have to wait. You are seated at communal tables and the food is placed on a lazy Susan type revolving circular table. The food is Southern style but seasoned well and usually tasty. The experience can be fun or it can be a bit challenging. On my last visit I met two family members prior to attending a funeral. The gentleman and his wife who were seated with us kept interjecting himself into our conversation challenging some of what we were saying. It was a frustrating experience. His wife never spoke after the initial greetings and she seemed embarrassed by him. The food itself was good and I probably ate more than I should have!

The perfect family lunch! We have heard about Buckners for the 20 years we have lived in Henry Co. and just finally made the trip down here. What a great experience! We can’t wait to come back. Perfect for families! You don’t have to order individual plates! The whole menu is delivered to your table! The kids loved spinning the lazy susan to get their own helping of Mac and cheese! Shout out to the amazing staff! We spilled a big sweet tea and before we could process it, a nice kid was there with the tub, rag and a fresh (with lid) tea before we knew it! My youngest is still talking about how magic he was! Thanks for a great experience!!

Wife and I stopped in for our first visit. The overall efficiency is very interesting as they move a lot of people in and out...and they all leave satisfied and smiling! Our menu included fried chicken and cube steak/gravy, fantastic mashed potatoes that were creamy w/ just the right buttery taste, green beans, pinto beans and (slaw and cabbage) . Topped off a wonderful meal with some of the very best apple cobbler I've ever put in my mouth. Good sweet tea and very pleasant servers. You might have to wait a bit...but it's worth it!!

It was our first time here. Won't be our last. Even though it's a drive for us. It will be worth it! I wasn't at all sure how a buffet was going to work with covid-19. I love how it's set up here. You're seated at a table with a big lazy Susan in the middle. Then they set all the dishes of food around the lazy Susan. So you just serve yourself what you want and spin on to the next item you want. This reminds me of big family meals at my in-laws. The chicken is delicious! And the warm peach cobbler to finish, perfect!

We arrived on a Saturday morning just as the restaurant was opening. There were plenty of open seats with no wait while we were there. The price is $22 per person but that is an amazing value for everything that comes with the meal. We had 11 courses/options plus the Iced Tea came with the meal. The day we came was Fried Chicken and Pork BBQ both were as good as any I’ve ever had (I’m 45 years old). They had 8 sides that included potatoes, corn bread or rolls, creamed corn, Mac n cheese, green beans etc etc. All excellent. After you have eaten as much as you want with unlimited refills they bring the cobbler! We had Peach which was also very good. I loved the Lazy Susan presentation. The place is very unique and if you like southern comfort food you won’t be disappointed. The entire team was attentive and kind.

Excellent place for southern style home cooking. Service is family style, they have big lazy susans on every table and they load it up with vegetables, fried chicken, pork BBQ, and BBQ ribs. Boiled potatoes and green beans are super. The apple cobbler is fantastic!

We went on a Thursday afternoon and were lucky to get a table to ourselves. They will put couples with other people at their large tables. I'm not sure how that works with the family style food service as we were alone at our table. They bring everything on their menu out portioned to our table of 2. It is placed on a lazy susan for easy access. The specials change daily but the fried chicken is served every day with one other meat - ours was the pork cutlets with a gravy on top. They were ok. The chicken was delicious! I especially loved the stewed tomatoes (didn't know I was a fan!) and lima beans. Really, it was all good. They have one set price with a discount for seniors. The meal includes a drink and we had delicious peach cobbler. I will definitely visit Buckner's again when in the area. Yum!

This is a great place to eat if you're really hungry. One price all you can eat. You will be seated at a round table that has a lazy susan. Fried chicken is fantastic. Too much food to list but save room for the peach cobbler!! Well worth the money!

The wait was well worth it! We arrived and there was a line. But, it moved fairly quickly and when we got our table the family that was there with us was so super nice and we ate like we had eaten together before. The good thing I like about this restaurant is that you will never eat with the same group of people. It is good also because people you have never met before will be eating and enjoying the food with you.

Stopped at Buckners on way home from Atlanta. Definitely worth the stop. Be prepared to wait a while for a table and you could end up eating with people you don’t know since it’s family style seating. Food was absolutely delicious though. The price is a little high but it does include drink and dessert! I’m not a big eater so they made money on me but didn’t mind the price because the food is so good. Next time I’ll go more hungry. Do yourself a favor and make plans to visit this restaurant.
