A small buffet with a small price. You'll find plenty to eat though, and it's all delicious and fresh. I can't believe it's not packed every night. Give it a try, I'm sure you'll go back.

My husband and I really loved eating there. The food was wonderful.
Everything was home cooked! I give them a 100% approval. I just wish
they were closer to Cherry Grove so we could eat there more often.

Stopped in for dinner after reading several outstanding reviews in the local paper. This place used to be a pizza buffet. Walked in around 4:45, only a handful of customers, but who do we see? Issac the singing bus boy! Place was spotlessly clean, not fancy, buffet line was immaculate and the food was OUTSTANDING. All downhome southern cooking - everything was well seasoned and perfectly prepared, hot, fresh and outstanding. Fried chicken was melt in your mouth good, collards were decadent, mac & cheese was rich and delicious and the desserts were awesome. We tried: rice & gravy, corn, collards, sweet potato casserole, hoe cakes, green beans, bbq, ribs, fatback, black eyed peas, fried sqash, cole slaw, okra, pickles, mac & cheese, hot peach cobbler and ice cold banana pudding. All while we watched Issac (who is world renowned as the fastest busboy alive) clear tables, sing songs and make balloon art for the kids. We snuck in at the lunch price so our meal was less than $2 before tip for 2 adults. Dinner prices start at 5 PM ($10.95 vs. $7.95 for lunch, drinks are $1). Mac & cheese and ribs are served for dinner only. Probably the best casual meal we've ever had.

This nice little southern style food buffet is close to the hub of town, but on a side road. I don't think it gets the chance it deserves. It has southern dishes and is different from the rest.

Pros: It is convenient and clean. It has a nice big porch and the tables are not all crammed together. It has a high ceiling and is nice and airy. The lunch price of $7.79 (till 4:00) can't be beat. Drinks are $1.00. After that, dinner is a few bucks more. Ribs (dinner) were good. The pulled pork on a biscuit with slaw was awesome. Great cheese buns too. Tasty mac n' cheese and greens. Very good fried chicken. Also a good chicken dumpling mix. Good on the garlic mashed, rice, or over a biscuit. The mashed potatoes looked so soupy. But, they tasted very good, so don't let that deter you. The yams were to die for, so make sure to try them. It is not the biggest buffet, but what is there is plenty to eat. It seems good quality and not all canned. How can you go wrong for the price? There weren't millions of desserts, but the ones they had were good. Very nice peach cobbler. We saw the busboy going from table to table to chat. One of the friendliest people I have ever seen. Drew on balloons for the kids. Really, this place is worth a try.

Cons:.If you require 180 choices in your buffet, this isn't the place for you. It really would have been nice to have some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for that nice peach cobbler. As we were leaving, we noticed the sign telling about their locally "famous" bus boy Isaac. He seems to hold the record for being able to clear a table faster than anyone else, in 6 seconds! He had been mentioned in a newspaper article. We did see his unique table clearing method, but did not understand what it was at the time. They should have Isaac's story so you can see it on the way in, so you know what you are looking at. It also say he will take requests for songs that he sings at certain times, so it would be good to know this before you leave.

Over all, give it a try. You will probably like it.

Had dinner with four adults and four children last night. Price was less than 100 for all. It's not a huge buffet but so what. What else could you ask for from a barbecue buffet? It's very unassuming but the people were so nice and Issac the host/bus-person sang and made balloons for the kids. We will definitely be back.
