I rate this one as No.1 Best Country cooking around! If you want country food and seafood combined, You cannot beat it, period! Their fried chicken and barbecue are the best in town and the best in Any town! Them other chicken places are Not a close 2nd, either. They have a Great selection on the buffet bar and Plenty...

We stopped off here on our way through North Carolina. Although this is a cafeteria style restaurant, the food was of good quality and flavor. It was also very affordable. This is a place I would bring our family or for a quick, casual meal.

Had dinner here with a group of neighbors. It's like cafeteria style, one price. Little bit of everything. Vegetables were typical country. The coleslaw just sucked. Pork barbecue was uninteresting. Beef ribs were not prepared well. Pies were brought in from somewhere else. All in all very average and not really a good value. Not recommended.

Cafeteria style buffet all you can eat for under $12 a person!! When we were there it was Fried Chicken (which wasn't greasy) and Fish and all the southern comfort sides you could think of and then silk pies and banana pudding for dessert.

For all of you wishing for a nice vintage appeal and great food inside an old barn this is the place for you! The only place where macaroni and cheese is a vegetable. The portions were big and filling. The atmosphere and artwork is inviting.

My family and I frequently visit this place for dinner. The food is good and the value for your money is good as well. It is normally pretty packed on Thursday's as that is when they offer their 2 for $20 special. It is definitely a great deal for buffet. What I also like about this restaurant is that they... More

Servers were pleasant and polite. Southern hospitality at it's best. I'd been to Ron's Barn before, but this time was different. My husband and I were meeting my mom & her friend there for lunch. As I'd remembered from my previous visit, the food was EXCELLENT. Flavorful and cooked to perfection. I live on the West Coast and can't get... More

Family owned and good for families and couples. Cafeteria style service and the food is consistently good. Not the healthiest choice but a little cheating once in a while never hurt anyone. You are charged by how much you get. Normally, one meat (or shrimp) and two or more sides and dessert. My husband and I go for lunch sometimes... More
