Make sure you visit the Pioneer Family Restaurant on main street in Archdale. This restaurant believes in the old principles of great food and great service. The wait staff is prompt and very friendly and there are always plenty of folks on staff to ensure that you receive great service.

Salad bar: they shred the lettuce, ham, eggs, cucumbers etc. So what you say? This is a little thing, but it allows the salad items to blend so well on your plate so each fork full offers a variety of tastes rather than a big ole leaf of lettuce. This makes for the best tasting fresh salad you can have.
The buffet is a smorgasbord of Southern recipes. Fried Chicken, okra, mashed potatoes, green beans, vegetable soup and more. The carving station has turkey breast, ham and roast beef. The menu offers a variety of steaks and more that have never disappointed anyone in my family.

Pioneer was my "go to" place in Archdale for over a year. I had both the buffet and the menu. It is great for a couple or families where some of them want the buffet and some do not. I have had several of the steaks and they have all been good. The buffet is always hot with plenty of veggies and several choices of meats some of which have been hand carved turkey, roast, and even prime rib one time!!! The salad bar part of this restaurant is exceptional...NO comparison at all to the "other" famous buffet when it come to the salad bar. Pioneer is MUCH better, more choices, fresher and good choices of dressings. I have never seen an empty tub on the salad bar...they keep it well filled, even during the busy times. Always clean, Super wait staff...I will be back!

THIS IS THE WORSE PLACE EVER TO EAT!!! I came in and scooped hair in my mashed potatoes and the owner didn't even apologize . The customer service is the worst I have ever seen
