I stopped there for lunch and it was good. A nice selection of meats, vegetables, salads, a soup, and desserts plus corn bread and nice golden brown rolls. For the price, it is a bargain and the waitresses were very attentive. I live about a mile away and it was my first time and I will be going there again.... More

Good buffet for $7.55. Comfort food at a good price. Meatloaf, fried chicken and lots of veggie choices. Good fried green tomatoes. The sweet potato soufflé is also very good.

Went there once just because I was passing - been back several times since. However if buffets are not for you and home cooking is not on your menu wish list - then drive on by. However if both fit your bill then give this place a try and you'll be sure to come back again!!

OK if your looking for a drabby little place with a tiny, canned food buffet. It wasn't really the best experience. Go someplace else nearby, like Jhonny's pizza or Barbecue Street.

Even without Donny the food is still good. The menu is about the same with the same tastes as before. Food and drink for about $7.50. For the price it is a very good deal and provides you with many choices. We went on a Sunday for lunch and had fried chicken, meatloaf, small fried shrimp, fried green tomatoes and... More

Seems that the new owners have finally got it!. The Chicken Pot pie tasted just like we remembered!..The service is still great! We will be coming... More

Food here is just average but it is a good deal for a quick fully cooked meal. Not as good as home but still a good inexpensive meal.

I wanted to post an update to my previous review. We are sorry to say Donny sold this restaurant and it has gone a bit downhill with the changes the new owner has made. We used to eat here very frequently, but our last few visits confirmed that it just isn't the place we used to love. Several of our... More

This is a great home cooking restaurant. I would recommend it to anyone. They have great real home cooking. The prices are very affordable. In comparison to eating fast food you are not going to have to pay much more for a home cooked meal. They are doing great food for an all you can eat buffet. In comparison to... More
