Excellent food for everyone. You can choose a table or booth and place you order or you can choose the buffet. Either way, you will receive the best that Circleville has to offer. Fried chicken, beef roast, or pork roast. Everything is home made and cooked to perfection.

We've eaten here a lot over the years! They have the best broasted chicken in town and now make their own french fries and onion rings. Their nightly buffet is a real value, especially for kids, and they have really good pies and an ice cream machine for dessert. Not everything is made from scratch and some of the meals... More

If you want a Delish quick lunch, you can call ahead and pick up! Or dine in. We had Rubin sandwiches and onion rings!! Great service, reasonably priced, clean and the food was very good. Handicap accessible. Highly suggest this one!!

We had lunch here. Everything was just OK. Not the best not the worse. I ordered Chili and it was kinda bland. Not a lot of chili seasoning. My wife's cube steak was OK. All the side veggies come off the salad bar. The peas & carrots looked like they came from a can. They had been setting in water... More

My Family and friends have gone to this restaurant at times. I like the food and even the buffet they offer. What I don't like is some of the staff and management of this restaurant. Almost every time I dine here the staff at this restaurant is very unpleasant and act like they are miserable working there. I do not... More
