The food was excellent. The handicap parking was not great at all. But once you made it inside and got seated it was wonderful. There was a wait even early in the day, but most really great places do have waits

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.More

We have lived here for 15 years. Our first time visiting Buckners. So clean, country authentic food, decor and staff. From checking till you leave your made feel like family. So much food!!!! Flavorful delicious food. Staff quick and keeps dining area spotless. Food hot...quality and quantity enormous. There was only hubby and I probably enough food served for 3 or 4... We highly recommend this establishment. To give props where due, I haven't had corn and cobbler as good as my grandmas until now. Off Hwy 75 south at exit 201. 1168 Bucksnort Road Jackson, GA 30233 Find them on Facebook or at bucknersfamilyrestaurant.comMore

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!!More

The family style meal was everything you expect. Fried Chicken, Macaroni & cheese, mashed potatoes, biscuits, corn bread, cream corn, green beans, honey ham. It was interesting talking to the other people at our table.

This was the first time being in this area coming from KS to visit a niece! She selected Buckners and everything was so good! Love love love the macaroni and cheese as it was baked! Loved the juicy tender chicken breast and the way the...cut it in smaller pieces. The staff was super friendly and kept the food coming! I was so impressed by the lazy susan and all the many dishes they put on it! Can’t forget the sweet tea! The best as it was not overly sweet! It is owned by the Buckner family so no chance one coming to Kansas so I can only hope I get to come back and eat here again!!More

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!!More

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!More

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!More

Took my friend here because she never has been. She loved the food. She loves vegetables so I knew this would be good. She does not eat tomatoes. I told her to please try the stewed tomatoes. She loved them! We even asked for the...recipe. The food and service was excellent. Even though it is family style they let us have a table to ourselves. The waitress was excellent. However, if I had to give a negative I would have to say that it is way too noisy in there. With the carts all over serving and the bus boys slamming the dishes everywhere and the people trying to talk it was almost unbearable.More

So good! Great chicken every time. Very consistent food. Love the limas, corn, slaw, chicken and pork. Top it off with peach cobblers. Love the family style seating. We have had some sweet people to sit with.

According to the menu, Brunswick stew is friday night with all you can eat ribs, stewed tomatoes every other night. Hope this answers your question.
