I chose the country buffet and ordered the Fried Chicken Breast as my meat. You can get the buffet and then order from a selection of meats that they bring out a serving to you. There were no meats on the buffet. The buffet is a country buffet (Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Mac & Cheese, Pasta Salad, Carrot Salad, Green Beans, etc.) plus their salad bar. They made Cheese Biscuits similar to Red Lobster - only better. Plus there was Peach Cobbler and Banana Pudding on the buffet line. I really enjoyed the mashed potatoes and the melt in your mouth Cheese Biscuits.
The decor was plastered with all sorts of signs, toy cars, photos and funny sayings. They have a huge assortment (100+) of candy. This family style restaurant was somewhat busy around 2:00 PM on Tuesday afternoon.
The best part of Abele's is by far the price. Around $7 for some really good home cooking. I drove right pass a Wendy's, McDonald's, and Arby's.
I will definitely stop and eat here when I am back in the Morganton area.
