Johnboy's is a very basic restaurant buffet. Nothing fancy. Mostly "country style" food that changes each day. It is self-serve but the staff does keep your drinks full and the tables clean (between servings). Lunch and dinner are the same - both offerings and price - and it is VERY REASONABLE. While the customer set is somewhat varied - most customers (especially at night) are seniors. Basically - a good place to go when you want a quick meal and nothing fancy.

Had dinner with mom and enjoyed the buffet. The chicken was the best part of the buffet and the sweet tea plentiful. Great service and go hungry.

I have been to their locations in Marietta and Snellville. Country cooking served buffet style. Menu options change daily. I rated service as average because it's hard to rate it higher for folks who just bring you a beverage. The ladies at the Marietta location cook use some lessons in hospitality.

Wonderful traditional Southern cuisine in an all you can eat format. Great meeting place in a simple and easily accessible location. Healthy portions of chickens, salads, and desserts make this a must if you looking for a change of pace.

The restaurant is run by a very competent team and the waitstaff is efficient a friendly. Another restaurant is located in Cartersville. Food is always plentiful, fresh and relatively attractive considering the setting. If you're looking for "upscale and expensive" you do not want to go here, but if you want reasonable prices and good, country, comfort food, this is the place. My wife is a gourmet cook and is always pleased with the temperature, taste and variety of the buffet. Likeable managers are always hustling. Always a favorite if we want plenty of food for the money.
