This place has delicious food!!! Buffet style!! Fried chicken, pork chops, beef stew, vegetables, biscuits, corn bread, and dessert. Inexpensive food if you are on a budget!!! Friendly service and they bring your table a pitcher of tea!!!! Great restaurant in Conway, South Carolina.

We've been driving by The Outer Limits for some time now, and finally had an opportunity to stop in for dinner. It was so good we went back the next week! It's not a large buffet, but they have daily specials, and the food was delicious--homemade, hot, and plenty of it. The employees were friendly and attentive, and I'd definitely... More

Supper last night after movie. This is a small family buffet restaurant. Don't judge it by size because the flavor is huge. Their fried chicken is the best I have tasted in a long time. You can eat to the bone and not be afraid of seeing any red from under cooking. I saw another review saying it wasn't for... More

If you are looking to experience some good Southern cooking visit this restaurant. Reasonably price for all you can eat, including drink and desserts. I'm especially fond of the Southern fried chicken.

I have driven past this location many times and have seen relatively full parking at lunch. Have always wondered what the food was like. My wife and I decided to give it a try and will certainly return. Some of the best fried chicken that I have ever tasted. Not a very large buffet, but everything on the buffet was... More

the food either was to watery, tasted if out of a can, was to greasy or had NO flavor at all, the fatback had more flavor then anything and that I couldnt eat out of fear of breakin a tooth. Dinty Moore Stew is 100% better then theirs and the dessert? Graham cracker choc pudding was ok but couldnt even... More

We have past this place in our travels over the years but never when we were hungry. We came by at lunch one day and decided to stop in. They had a very large buffet of country cooking. We were greeted as we entered and showed us to our seat and directed us to the buffet. The food was good... More

There was not one thing good about it. Will never go back. Worse restaurant ever! Do not recommend. Bad fried chicken, veggies out of a can, the desserts were so terrible. It was a total waste of money. The inside needs work..no atmosphere at all. Old and smelly.

A very disappointing experience. The food tasted ok. The meals were expensive. The only thing positive about the restaurant was the location. It had lots of space and kids could run around freely. The service was extremely poor. It took long for the food to arrive. And when it did, they forgot to prepare one person's meal. He only got... More

This is a great place to eat. We stop here every time we come to the coast. The staff are very friendly and make sure you don't need for anything. The food is so good. The fried chicken is wonderful. I think I have tried just about everything. Enjoyed it all.
