We have been driving up here from Florida for several years now. The staff isn't very nice but we keep coming back for the food. They really should work on being a little nicer but the food is worth suffering through!

The BBQ, sauce and fried chicken are excellent and highly recommended. However there is very limited choice on the buffet for $12.95. The macaroni was greasy, green beans sour and no bananas in the pudding. Additionally the hush puppies were soggy and without flavor, just...More
