“Going down fast!!!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I have been enjoying wonderful fried chicken with real mashed potatoes and fresh country vegetables here since 1999, but NO MORE!!!!!!!!! We have noticed over the past few months that the food has gone downhill and one particular server has just had a nasty attitude. We visited recently to find the chicken didn't even have a brown appearance like it had been fried at all. It looked pale as if it had been pressure cooked, and quickly fried to try for a crispy finished, but they failed miserably. The macaroni and cheese was not done at all and the vegetables had a very strong taste like it had been seasoned with wild boar hog meat. The peach cobbler was mostly cobbler and for the fifth month in a row the ice cream machine was not working. They did have a sign to ask for ice cream, but the waitress was so nasty we didn't want to deal with her. The other waitress was doing the best she could, cleaning tables and taking money so we didn't want to bother her.
Our drink orders were wrong and the nasty waitress just slammed the correct drink down when she finally served it. Do not eat here unless you are used to eating bad food!

“We drive a long way out of our way to eat at the Speckled Butterbean.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

A few years ago we passing through Webster on business when we happened upon the Speckled Butterbean. In the past I have had good luck with restaurants located in or next to livestock auctions so we stopped in to try it.

MERCY, I'm glad we did. We love it. From the small town atmosphere to the EXCELLENT country cookin' laid out on a buffet, you'll be hard pressed to find better food or friendlier folks.

If you want a to-go plate they sell 'em by the pound. Their prices are good so pile it on.

You'll find a great selection of meats and sides to chose from and they keep it fresh. The hard part will be holding back to save room for dessert but if you can, you'll love it.

We like the place so much we often drive out of our way, from I-75 just to eat there. Maybe that sounds crazy but we are always glad did.

If you like country cookin' cooked right I think you'll agree they are tops.

“Still a hit even after changes, she makes great homemade deserts and great beans.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2012

Years and changes have made this home style restaurant a constant hit. Order a cheeseburger off the menu if your not too hungry for the super Buffett. Wear stretchy clothes if do order the Buffett. Friday nights they offer seafood of many dishes where on is as good as the next. Sweet tea is a must with your visit and if you happen there on a Monday enjoy the huge market at the fairgrounds next door.
