This restaurant has a pretty good buffet. The mac and cheese is excellent as well as the fried chicken. The pork however, was bland and very dry. The spaghetti had been left out for a while, but everything else I tried on the buffet was...More

Great Food! We had fried chicken, meat loaf for entrees, basic salad bar, homemade desserts. Price $10 during the week. Well worth it . Fresh country vegetables are wonderful. Crowed, so eat early!

This is a great place to eat if everyone wants something different. I love the vegetable choices. My husband enjoys the variety of meats. There are always lots of dessert choices as well. Just about anyone can find something to enjoy here.

A little off the beatin' path, but well worth the trip. Large buffet, friendly staff. Seemed like a lot of locals. Buffet was plentiful and had great chicken. Desserts were plentiful.

The food there is always excellent! I think that you can order from a menu, but most everyone eats the buffet. Lots of great vegetables (Southern Cooking). Great Waiters! The fellow that owns the place is very efficient (although they usually have a waiting line)...More

Didn't dream the food would be so outstanding. Fried chicken was cooked to perfection. The hot bar was hot, salads were cold and desserts were excellent. Our waitress was perfect. Definitely will be back.

Response from Ashley T | Reviewed this property |
Week days are around $10 on the weekend it's $13... but they also have plate lunches which is smaller portions starting at $5 to $8. Some may think it's a little pricy but if you like home cooking it's well worth it.
