We like to eat there from time to time. It isn't close to home but worth it when you are in the area. Prices for what you get are reasonable.

I have always enjoyed going to Buckners to eat. Everyone always talks about the chicken, and the BBQ. They also have really good ham. The veggies are always good with the tomatoes, lima beans, corn, and mashed taters always a favorite. The only real negative point is the small discount they give to seniors. I would like to see them... More

If you are looking for some good, southern, family style eating, look no further! I bring a group of seniors to Buckner's no less than twice a year. The food is absolutely delicious and plentiful; the staff, always friendly and inviting!

My first visit to this homespun, family-owned place ... You pay as you enter, and it is pricey ($50+ for 3), but it is worth it if you come hungry. You will be seated at a round table big enough for 10 people. A large lazy-Susan is loaded with all you need: home-style servings of fried chicken, roast beef +... More

On our way back to Florida stopped in the Flying J to get gas, parked behind station with our RV and walked 5 minutes to 'Buckner's. Saw the huge billboards, thought we would give it a try for lunch. They only open 4 days, Thursday - Sunday from 11am - it's $16 adult and $6 kids 12yr and under -... More

I really love Buckner's but don't get there often as it is a little far and is out of the way for us. Today was the first time in about 5 years. Everything was great...my favorites were the cole slaw and steak and gravy. However, the fried chicken was by far the best I've eaten and much better than I... More

We stopped with a group of 45 (highschoolers and adults) and everyone loved the place. The group has stopped here for several years, when passing through after our summer trip. The food has always been excellent and ready immediately upon our arrival (family style service) so it make for a relatively quick lunch, but everyone always wants to stay and... More

Found Buckner's by pure accident while looking for another restaurant close by, saw that there were plenty of cars in the car park and decided to give it a try instead, so pleased we did, it was $14.50 to enter, which included a drink of tea, water or lemonade, there's a lazy Suzan in the middle of the table to...
