Most of the food was kept fresh and the dumplings were good. The selection was limited and the dessert mostly different puddings. It was satisfying but wouldn't go out of my way to come back and actually thought Golden Corral has better food.

Don't let first appearances fool you. Great down home cooking. Fried chicken, chicken livers, roast beef, pork shank, collard greens, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, fried shrimp, rolls, corn bread...I could go on. In our travels, stop in and have a seat.

I like to go to a place where they serve something other what you expect. There was real southern food there and it was all good. No one would be disappointed. The variety would satisfied anyone in the family.

Very good buffet. Always great food and plenty of it. If you leave hungry it is your own fault. Great variety. One caution, watch out for kids with inadequate parental supervision.

The previous answer is right. One oddity is that the left cash register is programmed to charge $8.05 and the right cash register is programmed to charge $8.06.
