I came here for lunch on a Friday and it was busy. I got a table immediately. The waitress quickly took my drink order. I wanted lots of veggies and baked or grilled chicken. They had plenty of each. It all was very good. I love the vintage decor all over the walls.

A wonderful home cooked buffet in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Fast, friendly service. Delicious food with a large variety. Seafood and ribeye steaks on Friday and Saturday night. All for a very reasonable price.

A classic southern buffet. Just about everything you would want to eat is available. Definitly not diet friendly, but very good food. The fried chicken is awesome and the banana pudding is a real treat. Go and experience, you will enjoy.

My only experience has been the lunch buffet during week days, and I've been quite a few times because my dad loves this place.

We were traveling through the south for vacation this summer, and planned to spend a night in Hattiesburg. We wanted to steer clear of chain restaurants that we could visit anytime in the Midwest and wanted some Southern down-home cooking!
