Good country cooking worth getting off the highway for, that's for sure. I always do as often as I can. Heard good things about them from colleagues pining away about how good they were from way over in Orlando. Crying about them a few years...More

Best fried chicken ever and it's available every day of the week! Country cooking at it's best. My favorite day is Sunday because of the choice of vegetables. The menu changes daily but the quality is always great. Wonderful cooks and friendly staff.

Family & friends gathered here to dine on a family visit weekend. The food was good, reasonable, and the employees were very helpful. Our entire group was pleased & would return if we were in the area.

Yes, driving home from Port Canaveral, Florida, a stop at O'Neal's Country Buffet was the highlight of my 9-Day Caribbean Cruise. The Islands were pretty, the people were friendly, the monkeys were cute and the food was OK. But, O'Neal's was exactly what I needed...More

We have eaten here many times. It is located in an older building which looks like a place where cars would park outside and waitresses would come up to the window and take your order. That's my take on it. The food is consistently good....More

It seems they are just open for lunch except on Friday and Saturday they stay open for dinner. They are 54 miles on I 10 from Lake City.
