“Enormous Selection of Southern Food”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

We southerners love our buffet restaurants, and the Ole Times Country Buffet on Gray Highway in Macon is one of the best in the region. An ample salad bar, many meats, vegetables, breads and desserts, all for one price fulfills that southern tradition. The fried chicken is excellent, the fried fish is scrumptious. You know it's true southern food when you can get fried fatback on the food bar. Even if you just want a great vegetable plate, this is the place to get it, although I can't honestly say it's a good place for vegetarians, since most of the veggies are seasoned with meat. The location isn't terribly convenient for Interstate highway travelers, but if you're hungry, it's worth the drive from I-16.

“Simply the Best”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

If you like REAL southern style cooking, this the place. I am not a big buffet fan, but I make an expeception for Ole Times. They have fried okra like my mom used to make. It is truly one of my favorite places to eat in Warner Robins. I have heard bad reviews on the one in Macon though. Go to the one in Warner Robins, it is awesome.
