We stopped driving through based on reviews and were not disappointed. $11 for a decent buffet wont get any complaints from us. Really enjoyed the sweet potato casserole and the ribs. This is not a fancy establishment but there were sure quite a few locals...More

Family & friends gathered here to dine on a family visit weekend. The food was good, reasonable, and the employees were very helpful. Our entire group was pleased & would return if we were in the area.

I've eaten in the restaurant and enjoyed take-out, too. The food is scrumptious and delicious, well worth the prices they charge. I recommend the restaurant.

A buffet with limited options. Nothing spectacular to rave about. The food was traditional southern cooking, no complex flavors or food mixes, but good enough for the locals as they steadily streamed in to eat.

How are GPS found this great country buffet restaurant as we were traveling along I 10 in Florida. It's only about 3 1/2 miles off of the interstate but well worth the trip over there. They smoke their chicken right there that is served on...More

It seems they are just open for lunch except on Friday and Saturday they stay open for dinner. They are 54 miles on I 10 from Lake City.
