I was enjoying a wonderful meal recently with my family, when I overheard another diner actually say this, "oh! This Fried Chicken, is Amazing! Why, it's 'Better Here than at Lady & Sons' -& more affordable, too!" So, I reached over & snagged a bite from my daughter... WoW! They were Oh, So Right! Peggy's has 'Down-Home' cooking, with Large Portions (I shared a plate!) The Vegetables were well made, and seasoned perfectly. We had butter-beans (small limas), macaroni, black-eyed peas and a melt-in-the-mouth biscuit-from-heaven along with that finger-lickin' Chicken (a plate comes with meat, three vegetables, & bread). I also had a chance to get some of the green beans from my other daughter. Apparently, these are better than the green beans at Cracker Barrel, and my girls are experts on their green beans! Finally, I would say this: Don't let the unassuming look of this delightful Restaurant deter you! This is some of the best home-style cooking around!

Peggy's sure isn't housed in a fancy facility. It appears to be a converted service station. The food is basic and not fancy either, but it sure does taste good. If you like good old country style food cooked right and priced right, this is the place for you. Remember to take cash!

This is probably the best lunch buffet in a multi-county area. Service is good as you enter a line and step up to order your meat and three vegetables in a regular or 'small' plate. Many local workers and farmers eat here at lunch and you have to have a large appetite to eat the regular plate cause they pile it on! I usually get the small plate and their sweet potatoes are wonderful. Yeh, it's just a small town lunch buffet but it's very good and average priced. I worked for the county and ate here often and it was always good and plenty filling.

Love this place. We here as often as possible when passing through wrens. Make sure to stop and give it a try. Just for your info they do not take any type of card. Cash or check only. My kids eat so good here and the peach cobbler is so good. Enjoy!!

Good for lunch. The child's plate is plenty for a lady.
