My husband loved the fried chicken. Really good buffet. Love all of the salad selections too. Peach cobbler was really tasty.

Come for the breakfast bar quite often. Classics like grits, biscuits, gravy, fat back, bacon, sausage, danishes...and a great price.

We went to Cousin Gary's because we heard it had a buffet and we could have a variety of choices. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The items of the buffet were a mixed bag--the fried chicken, ribs and sweet potatoes were delicious....More

Good buffet, so good, without self discipline, you may waddle away instead of walking. Staff was Johnny on the spot, but not intrusive. Very enjoyable sit down meal!

The food was tasty and you had good choices. The service was very good and the price reasonable. It is a family restaurant and many of the locals eat there too.

If you are looking for good, cheap and fresh food, and plenty of it, look no further. Some of the best fried chicken I've ever had, delicious buffet, friendly waitstaff and family owned and operated.
