“Superb Southern - The Real Deal”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

If you want real Southern home cooking at it's best (including fried green tomatoes), it's here in buffet style. Buffet changes day to day but seems to always have the excellent fried (not greasey) chicken. Lots of veggies, sides including homemade mac & cheese and desserts. A great value and always very good food.

“Great value!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We stoped here because of the filled parking lot....that is a very good sign for us! The food was great & service too! The fried green tomatoes were to die for....I will have dreams of them!

“Good Southern food for the money”
Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

Love the chicken and tomatoes. The salad bar could use an upgrade. Always friendly and Bluegrass night on Tuesday nights(?) is great! Overall a quick night out dinner that is very pleasing. Beats fast food any day.
