My daughters like this buffet style restaurant for typically southern fare. Fried chicken, turnip greens, fried okra, cobbler topped with ice-cream. It could use a thorough update in the decor as this is a mighty frequented place for people to eat.

Their foods are fresh and hot. I love their buns with the sweet butter. I would definitely go there again when I am in the mood for a buffet. I believe it is the best buffet in town. Great staff and friendly service as well.

They're written by competing restaurants! I'm a local and their parking lot is always packed. There's the truth. Great salad bar - steaks how you want them cooked (you have to approve the steak before the cook lays it on your plate) daily menus are just too much to try and eat them all !

Nothing special about the place. It has seen better days in terms of carpet and seating, but the food areas are clean.

Food selection was poor. Servers don't care how you want your steak, they give you the piece they want. Some items were either cold or not cooked completely. Never go back!
