Jim Olivers is always one of our must go-to stops when in Monteagle, TN. The only reason that I marked this as a 4 instead of a 5 star is that if you are looking for vegitarian or a healthful meal, you may be dissapointed. However, you will never be disappointed in the home cooking you find here! You can order from a menu or select their all-you-can eat buffet witch includes soup and salad along with entrees and sides. Yes, there are vegatables. However, they are likely to be cooked with ham or bacon as a seasoning. Yum! The evening we were they had wonderful fried chicken, pulled pork, and chicken and dumplings on the buffet. Be sure you try the samples of their sauces, jellies, pickles, fudge, and other products while you are there. Tasting is free. Yum! Also, don't forget to take home one of their fried pies for later!!! You really must try this place. The pace is slow on the mountain, so be ready to just relax for a leisurely meal.
