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! I searched online for options, and found The Movie Star restaurant. There were a few negative reviews, but overall, it... More

Second thing you'll notice is the enormous display of food on the buffet line just waiting for you to slip-and-slide into. The place is large, the staff is friendly and fast, and when you first sit down it's only for... More

Famous for their fried chicken. The grilled is equally delicious. I love their veggies. They are well seasoned not just dumped out of a can and heated like at so many buffets. So happy the owners opened the restaurant in Hattiesburg when their building in Purvis was kinda kicked out from under them. Would have hated to lose the deliciousness!!!... More
