Doc's in my opinion is a tough nut to crack. There is very little BBQ on the line, only a little pulled pork. The sides are normally quite good, by that I mean well seasoned. The biscuits, however are very similar to what I think...More

OMG, now this is BBQ done right. This buffet will have you going back for seconds and thirds. Although its the BBQ that brings you here, and it is so good, those little catfish bites are addictive! You'll enjoy, I promise

The Apple Cobbler was good, but there was nothing fancy about the fried chicken or the BBQ hash and rice. The lady who brought me my food seemed approachable, but the lady that took my order made me feel like I was interrupting her day....More

I met a group of friends at Doc’s for lunch, and was happily impressed with the quality of Doc’s buffet. Great pork bbq with a variety of sauces, fried chicken, baked chicken, and all the sides you expect. The food was excellent. Highly recommend!
