“Like that meal after church....”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

We started out going to the mexican food restaurant across the street but it was packed (I hear another good place to eat) so tried the Family Table. We have now been here 2 times and intend on going at least 2 times a month. I crave their food. It's a small buffet but all kinds of great food. Roast beef, home made cornbread, fried and grilled chicken, the catfish today...OMG....I could just keep going. Some long tables sitting 8 some for 2 and some for 4...all different and you are lucky to get a seat at one of them tables...get there early for lunch. A black family owns it and you can tell it belongs to them cuz they all work SO hard to get you tea and then here comes a tray of dessert...peach cobbler or banana pudding today. I hear the kitchen is tiny and how they get all that food made is amazing.

If you are looking for atmosphere this is not for you but if you are looking for great food you have got to try this great home cooking. You pull up and you think...really a restaurant???? Then you look around and look at the nice vehicles around the restaurant and you say it HAS to be good. You betcha...it's great!! This is one of my favorites restaurants and where the locals go.

Again I gave them a 4 star due to the atmosphere but it's clean and the food is great AND I just LOVE their service......Just about the whole package. There is just something that makes you want to go back again and again. You have GOT to try this place. You can park on the road behind it also and again get there early or you wont' get a parking spot or a seat. :)
