After checking in to our hotel is started checking out restaurants in the area for supper. After reading menu's and reviews I chose this one for our first night. The buffet was ok a little short of items but the food was sure good. The waitress was friendly and even brought me ice cream for my peach cobbler. I would... More

Heard great things about the Buffet. It was ok, fried food was a bit greasy but the peach cobbler was good. Although, didn't look at the menu so that might be better.

I'm not sure if I reviewed this restaurant last year when we were here for Sunday brunch, but I'm here to say the food is great. The buffet is loaded with home style, honest Southern food. Yummy fried chicken and mashed potatoes. Veggies were terrific and the peach cobbler is mouth-watering. We will be back again and again.

We were a little disappointed with the food bar. There was a decent variety, but we were not crazy about the food quality. The salad bar had a good variety of items. The food bar did include desserts and ice cream.

This will now become our "must stop" place as we travel from Colorado to Texas! To be honest, since it's located in a strip mall, you do not notice it but it's worth the stop. This is a family place with a over-abundant all-you-can eat buffet for a very reasonable price. The servers were super friendly, always checking that "all... More

I almost died laughing when I read a review from a traveler who stated that the "decor was dated" in this restaurant. It just seemed awful silly. It's a small town buffet restaurant. Everything on the buffet was delicious, especially the fried chicken. I'm telling you it was perfect. Steamed cabbage, mashed potatoes, hamburger steak, fried okra, etc. Very, very... More

We ordered off the menu & also the buffet. Very happy with both choices & definitely didn't go away hungry!! Fried chicken and Country fried steak were both amazing. Great for families and price was very reasonable.
