Now to start.. they're not big into super friendliness. . But that doesn't matter . Just go, do it now, don't wait.. just go! AMAZING! Never seen so many choices of meats, sides, or desserts in my life. Properly homemade, awesomeness! Real southern cooking. . I mean the REAL deal! Sooooo good! Worth every penny, should probably charge more! :-)

This restaurant has a great selection of vegetables, a good salad bar and a great desert bar. They serve southern cooking from fried okra, cream still corn and lots of beans and peas. If you like southern cooking this is a great place to eat

The Ole Times Country Buffet in Tifton has a buffet offering several choices of meats and plenty of choices of vegetables to select from. This was the number one thing that drew us to take a try at this restaurant. We had heard about it from others that it had a lot of veggie choices cooked to the old-fashioned southern... More

This is a no frills type restaurant...but great variety of vegetable on the buffet. The squash was outstanding, and I didn't have any but my husband said the fried chicken was wonderful. I really did enjoy our lunch there because of all the veggies. Everything tasted good and it was the kind of food we were craving....home cooking. The cobbler... More

Waitress/bussed was VERY sweet and friendly. Restaurant was dirty and disgusting though...especially the bathrooms! I didn't eat because there was nothing that looked remotely appetizing, so I just sat because I was traveling in a group. I can say there looked like there was a bunch to choose from in terms of options and varieties...but none of it looked very... More

Have eaten here twice a year for 4 or 5 years while on a golf outing with friends. We always eat here because it is a decent buffet with a very good selection of pretty well prepared foods. It is typical of a country buffet with a better than average selection. The food is very well prepared for buffet food.... More

This buffet is mediocre at best. Food poorly prepared and served lukewarm on the buffet. We paid $60+ for four adults and two children. Several fast food restaurants nearby at this same exit would be a much better choice! The building is old; the carpets are well worn. The further inside you wander, the more disrepair you will see. We... More

Delicious southern food. Plentiful! Vegetables! Desserts were mouth watering and just like mom's. Parking to accommodate a semi or large RV.

this southern buffet is as delicious as any we have encountered over the southern states. It includes a great variety of well cooked vegetables, meats, fish and chicken with biscuits, rolls and cornbread as well as salad and dessert bars. It's fast, free and ready for you to help yourself. It also offers take out to purchase by the pound.
