This buffet has EVERY food I love. The mashed potatoes are real not powdered. The cream corn is awesome. Chicken fried just like I like it. There was NOTHING I didn't like about the food.

This is the place to go for good country cooking in Macon. It has a remarkable selection of meats, fowl, and vegetables, plus a few unexpected items. Start at the salad bar with a selection of greens, toppings, seafood salads, dressings, etc. Next move to the entree line where you will find BBQ, fried chicken, BBQ chicken, catfish, fried fish,...

My husband and I went here for lunch and I was pleasantly surprised!! I only went because of the reviews I read on here. The Warner Robins location in my opinion is not good(very bland) so my defenses were up, and I didn't think I would ever eat at another ole times!! Ok back to the macon location review.....the food... More

I only have good things to say about Ole Times! They have a great buffet loaded down with good country cooking! Their dessert bar leaves a lot to be desired, but if you are still hungry come dessert time it won't matter too much!

My family and I ate here around 4pm on a Sunday and the food was great! Everything you can think of from a southern standpoint. It was very very crowded and hot inside. I don't think the ac could keep up between the heat outside and the amount of people inside. The waitress was very attentive and I don't think... More

We waited in line for about 20 minutes before we sat down. The food was great but damn I think the a/c was broken. Record time eating our dinner and going out to air conditioner in the truck.

Never heard of the place. Relatives I hadn't seen for years suggested we meet here. I drove from Atlanta. The food is delicious. Now I have to find a reason to come back to Georgia. The fried chicken is the best. Missed out on fish. The customer service is top notch, like you're at a relative's place. Visiting from Los... More

I love Ole Times Buffets. I have eaten at this one, one in Warner Robins, Dublin, and Albany. I have never been disappointed in the quality or variety of food available. Of course, because it is so good, it can tend to be very busy at times. That is the way it was when I ate there this past time.... More
