If you want Country Food at a great price this is the place. Fried chicken at its best, Country veggies, mashed potatoes, gravy, salad bar and great deserts. Thursday fried pork chops that are out of sight. Friday fried catfish, shrimp, ribs and more.

The staff was very pleasant, the decor was nothing special, and the food was good. We went for their Thanksgiving special at the recommendation of some of our family.

A pleasant surprise. Never would have guessed from the outside or the location that the food quality and service was so stellar. If you want down home, remind you of Sunday family dinner at grandmas kind of meal this is the place. Service is top notch. Prices are affordable.

I love this place. We were here for the breakfast buffet, one of the few in the area and were not disappointed. The food was good. Not a large selection but what is there is good eats. They also have a seafood buffet once a week and their fried chicken is among the best I have had.

Each day of the week Brown's Country Buffet has a special meal menu as well as the usual dining fare. The buffet is never ending and if you ever leave here hungry or not satisfied, it's your own fault. Food is fresh and seasoned just right. You can't go wrong stopping in to eat at Brown's Country Buffet
