Food for an entire day! Their buffet has lots to offer as well as the southern flavors should be. Their fried chicken and pork chops are delicious and all of the buffet items including the desserts are authentic.

Really good Southern style home cooking. Well done buffet with plenty of variety that should please everyone in the group. There's no way anyone should leave there hungry. Good, old timey desserts. Good banana pudding!

Sunday lunch buffet was exactly as it should be, which is rare these days. 4 or 5 meat choices (including the BEST fried chicken I've ever had), 6 or 8 veggies, and several starches (including some top-notch mac n cheese). I never even made it...More

First, the restaurant is on Pinkney St. in downtown Union. A group of 10 of us on motorcycles were on our way back home from the beach the long way and were coming into Union. Checked Tripadviser for someplace to eat and saw the reviews...More
