I love this place. When you get in the mood for food you grew up with like vegetables, corn bread, sweet tea and some kind of meat this is the place. I love the greek baked chicken with three veggies and I ask for extra sauce they spoon over the chicken. You need to know what you crave while walking... More

Food was very good, multiple choices of entrees and desserts. We have visited several times and family members have hosted birthday parties and celebrations there as well. It is set up cafeteria style, easy to access from expressways locally and for any visitors.

Very good food. You need to make quick decisions as you go through the line. They serve lots of people quickly. I recommend the banana pudding. The fried chicken is great too. Not many healthy choices but a nice cheat meal from time to time.

The restaurant has a buffet and the buffet has all kinds of home cooked food and the food is always very good. You go through the line and pick out what you want like meat and three. The waitress seats you and serves you tea or whatever you need.

GREAT vegetables cooked with quite a bit of spice and seasoning... meats are average but not average PRICE, 2 go plates ( meat and 3) used to run $20 but now is closer to $25, they automatically charge 15% extra for take-out and the plates/boxes they use are rarely ever enough to contain the food without making a mess by...

The food = YUM! It has an old school cafeteria feel. Tons of choices of entrees and sides, but you better have some idea of what you want before its your turn to order. Once the servers break eye contact, there is no going back. I had their meatloaf which was delish with a tomatoey sauce, Mac and cheese and... More

You won't leave hungry. Had turkey with all the trimmings at a reasonable price. Desserts are also good should have split a dessert. We were stuffed when we left. Food was very good as well as the service. Can't go wrong here.

The food here is good. You get a large variety of southern favorites...chicken, shrimp, fish, pork chops, roast beef. The veggies are well done with complimentary cornbread and rolls. The only negative is the servers rush you through the line!! You have to actually stop and demand a moment to view the choices. I have been going there for years... More
