Fantastic food! Friendly, fast service (Thanks Barbara!) Very clean place. Just thrilled to find this hidden gem while traveling with my family. The fried chicken was amazing, not greasy at all. Paired that with the potatoes and stewed tomatoes! Yummy! Our son loved the pulled...More

Meaning to go for years, we finally made it. So glad we did! This is Southern comfort food served family style off of a Lazy Susan. Tables are huge and if they're busy you'll be making new friends depending on the size of your party....More

It's a must stop when in Georgia. Food is excellent, varies by day but accurate from website menu. My personal favorite is the stewed tomatoes and peach cobbler. They have food coming until satisfied. Staff is friendly, a little pricey.

I enjoyed sitting at the round tables where you turn the middle to help yourself to the food. There was another couple sitting at the same table as us, but it was fun talking to them too. The food was good and no menu ordering.

The food is amazing. Their fried chicken is delicious, always hot and fresh. The 4/5 times I've been here, it's been delicious every time.

The food here is amazing. It is fresh and the quality is better than what you would get if you went to a Golden Corral or Ryan's. The price is a little high, but you do get what you pay for.

I had heard good things about Buckner's, but I was really disappointed in the food. The corn tasted canned, the potatoes were definitely canned, the BBQ had precious little sauce and the cobbler was way too sweet. The chicken consisted of hard to recognize little...More

Thankfully I don't live too far from Buckners (or maybe that is a bad thing for my waistline!), and never had a bad meal. Fried Chicken is hands down the best. Took a friend here that was visiting, and he said it is the #1...More

They come around with a cart and refill bowls as they get empty or close to empty. Very seldom does a bowl get empty without them noticing.

I believe the adult menu price is $16 dollars, seniors over 60 is $15.00, children are less but I'm not sure how much.
