“Food like mom used to make”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

My mom makes awesome homemade potato salad and this reminded me of hers. So did several other items on their very good Sunday buffet. Tasty soups, salads and desserts, plus hot sides to their three or four entrees, including fried chicken. A great stop along Rt. 51 if you want simple, homemade and tasty food.

“Travel Surprise Dinner”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Off Hwy 39---East on Exit 54 next to BP Fuel----Dinner 7PM---menu or AYCE Buffet.
The Buffet is loaded with very good quality items---casseroles, salad items, tonight fried chicken,
Baron of Beef, meatloaf---the usual potatoes, gravy, and deserts with pies that are seemingly
home made. Owner meets, greets and serves in a crisp white shirt and tie (classy) for a small
town country favorite sit-down well lighted and in the evening cozy.

“Best stop”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

Got off the exit looking for a familiar chain without being fast food. Nothing familiar but decided to give this restaurant a try for a late breakfast. It was exceptional and the waitress and cleanliness were beyond expectations. One of the best breakfasts on our extended vacation. Thanks Delanneys!

“Great place to stop!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Stopped with my family on way home from vacation. The whole staff were friendly, helpful, & went out of their way to serve us. Everyone including my 4-year-old picky eater found something they liked. Both kids got the buffet as did I and everything was tasty and hot. My husband had a frisco melt and said it was very good! We had mishaps of myself spilling salad on our table and then my daughter dropped her plate (which both & food went everywhere) at the buffet. The owner went out of his way to get it cleaned up quickly & assure her it was not a big deal. Truly a family owned restaurant. Our server was very sweet & excellent. If we ever pass through again we will stop for sure.

“A good deal”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

We visited in the pre-dinner hour. There is lots of seating in this nice clean place. There was a buffet that seemed to have lots of variety on it. I got the spaghetti that came with a salad. The salad was so-so, but the main course was very good & reasonably priced.
