Met girlfriends here for lunch last Friday and stayed three hours. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting and eating a little bit of everything on the buffet. Well, not really, too many choices to eat everything. But we sampled numerous dishes and raved about them all. Our waitress was attentive, yet allowed us to take our time at our table. Was informed they had just opened so that made our visit more impressive. Some of my favorites were meatloaf, mushrooms, sweet potato casserole, and a must, "pecan cobbler" with soft serve ice cream on top. Will definitely be back!

I was very impressed with the variety of the buffet. Traditional southern fare with all the fixings. Many meat choices, sides, and desserts. Also a very fresh salad bar. It seems to be a family owned restaurant by the feel of the service, which was not bad. The location is great too! I will definitely be going back.

Went on Fathers Day and it was very busy. Nice atmosphere for Buffet. Ordered steak from menu with baked potato and was very good and salad bar was fresh and lots of choices. Other party members enjoyed buffet. They had just opened and were probably working out some kinks for sure.

Nothing really good to say about it. Where to start?
At the beginning as we walked in. There was no one there to greet and seat us or the several people ahead as us. This was a clue we should have walked out. But finally seated. We waited and waited for our server but again no one showed. So we decided to go ahead to the buffet as maybe the server will soon be there. Finally she appeared had to ask for bread but didnt recv until after we had eaten the meal. The sweet corncakebread looked as if had been dropped on the floor and stepped on and the rolls were raw. We did get our drinks refilled and finally the dirty dishes were removed from our sticky table. Finally the check arrived. Since when did lunch 2:30 become dinner as we were charged dinner prices. I asked the server and was told that lunch ended at 2:30. Okaaaaay
As we went to pay for this overpriced slop of food guess what THERE WAS NO ONE TO PAY!! There was a line of paying customers and the same person who wasn't there to greet and seat wasn't there to take the money. He was sitting about 2 feet away wipping menus. Again there was a line of people waiting to pay. Finally I think the manager or supervisor showed. The little guy wipping the menus jumped up and came over. If this was the manager he wasn't very friendly didnt ask about the meal and I don't even think he said thank you, appreciated you business or come back.

When will I learn. Stay clear of these buffets which only have on guarantee a night with your head inside a toilet bowl puking your lunch at dinner priced meal. What a bargin.

The back kitchen workers were all non american speaking Mexicans. How do they know about health standards. This will be the next place to receive a bad score from the health dept if not already. I think this place just opened.

Obviously we won't be going back.
