We.were.on the road and looking for an off-beat/non-Christian place to try. This was perfect. Previous reviews were spot on! Yummy food, but the family atmosphere and ridiculously sweet servers made it fabulous! I thought pricing was great. For two adults and two kids, our bill was.under $35 as drinks and crazy good desserts were included. Now...if you don't like.chicken..you would... More

This is a local buffet restaurant. The food was good although the selection seemed tiny compared to the big chain buffets. The interior was pretty small and sectioned off into three or four rooms. There were only two tiny, dirty, one person bathrooms. Be warned they were not handicap accessible. B+ on the food and D- on the interior.

Which makes me wonder if you have a family restaurant why wouldn't you make sure your restrooms were clean also? Loved the food and there was plenty of it but it is hard to get over the fact that your restrooms were not kept very clean. Looked like no one bothered to check if they were flushing. So my suggestion... More

Fair price for the variety of food offered. Being born and raised southern it is hard to get cooking as good as mom's was, but is worth the cost you pay. I eat here on occasion and find the food is not always as good as other times. I do not know if they have different people in the kitchen,... More

The place very homey. Like you were with family in a big dining room. The fried chicken was delicious. I tried a little of everything it was good. The price is perfect. The ladies were very friendly.

I had heard that this location was "awesome". I disagree. It was average at best. Selections (for a buffet) were limited. I tried the fried chicken and it was very greasy. They have a soft serve ice cream machine. Vanilla was the only flavor. And it was very bland. Could not really even taste vanilla. The service was very good.

From the minute you walk in you see that the place is clean. The aroma of home cooking fills the air. The open dining room is buzzing with the sounds of forks clicking on the plates, the satisfied smiles of those heading out and waitresses zipping about refilling glasses and being friendly. The food is great. Excellent salad bar, fried... More
