One of best places to go for soul food. The atmosphere is representative of the Deep South. The meats are always fresh. The vegetables are fresh. They have an abundance of desserts to choose from. Most important for those who are budgeting, the prices are reasonable.

Oh my goodness...if you are traveling through Mississippi and just so happen to pass through Madison...you HAVE to stop at Hamils!! We have ate here several several times and have NEVER been disappointed. It is one of Mississippi's hidden treasures! The buffet line is to die for...everything you can ask for to eat. Even finicky eaters will find something here!... More

BBQ leaves a lot to be desired. But the sides are out of this world. Skip the meats and get the griddle cakes, beans, green beans and deserts. Well worth the price of admission.

My first visit here and found that buffet was a little confusing....Not bad, just me!! At any rate the food was great (mostly good old home cooking.) I will definitely return at a less busy time. It is really enjoyed by a lot of locals sitting at the table with different people but lots of fun! Service was great as... More

Extensive buffet, lots of delicious down-home Southern cooking! Something for everyone. Large variety of vegetables and meats. Don't expect anything fancy: you walk in the door, pay for your meal, take a plate, serve yourself, and find yourself a seat! Seating is available upstairs (not quite as crowded up there, but you have to be able to navigate carrying your... More

Busy place! Very good buffet -- lots of choices for anyone! It is a fast buffet - two lines even if you think it is really busy - the line moves along just fine. Excellent choices of salad, veggies, meat, dessert! You will like it a lot.

One of our favorite places to eat at when we travel to the Jackson, MS area! Go hungry, because there is tones of food on the buffet and the food will not disappoint! Some of the best sweet tea, too. A great atmosphere for a big southern style buffet...staff is friendly, sit at large tables, and pitchers of tea when... More

This is one of the best southern comfort buffets you will find. You will need a nap when you leave here. Good food. Affordable. Typically very crowded at lunch and it can be difficult to find seating. They charge a little too much for children 3-7 years since my 3 year old will probably eat one bite of food. Also... More
