Have been eating at this restaurant for over 5 years and enjoyed every visit. They have different special items each day along with the regular. Food is always hot and very tasty. You can look at their menu on line. Would recommend.

The best home cooked food in Marietta. Space is tight and cramped. They could use a better "waiting area". But it's worth it all. Everyone is like family.

This is one of those southern meat and three places you want to tell all your friends about but then don't because you want to keep it as your little secret. It's an amazing buffet of all kinds of southern specialties like fried chicken, chicken fried steak, mashed taters, corn, butter beans, green beans, cabbage, greens, all kinds of salad... More

This is a southern cooking all-you-can-eat buffet. The food is basic but good, the price is more than fair. We'll be back.

This is a buffet and - as all buffets - some things are hit and miss but in general, the food is really good. There are different selections every days (such as chicken livers on Tuesday, ribs on Thursday, Fish on Friday, etc). The cooking is Very Southern so the vegetables are over cooked, except the okra, which is always... More

For $8.99 all you can eat buffet the value is very good; everything is freshly made on the premises and the staff is very efficient. IF you are a vegetable lover you will be very happy and the variety of chicken dishes and other meats are enjoyable. The chocolate chip cookies are great!

I am not a fan of either. Too much salt and overly cooked vegetables. However, when low on $$$ and need something to eat...it's better than a 3# Extra Value meal. John Boys and Judy's are places we go and I swear "never again"...until the next time. Give it a try...tell me I was wrong!!

I've eaten here a lot because of family, the service is good , but the food no better than me opening up a can of veggies and warming them. The price is high. Most of the meat items are of low quality , not my idea of a good meal. The mash potatoes are just instant. The peach cobbler, your... More
