The buffet here is hard to beat! They served fried chicken strips, beef enchiladas, chicken fried steak, and baked chicken. All were delicious. Sides were good as well. Bread pudding was delicious. Blackberry cobbler, banana and chocolate puddings were delicious. We will be back.

The salad bar was not as fresh as usuall, and they were out of mashed potatoes, but the chicken and black-eyed peas were great. My one wish is that... More

Stopped for lunch and buffet was all that was available. Salad bar was well stocked with a wide variety of items. The ham and chicken fingers were delicious. The sides included potatoes, green beans and carrots. Desert was included. The blackberry cobbler was excellent.
