This is my favorite place to eat in Quitman, GA. The buffet changes every day and absolutely everything is wonderful.

We went on a Sunday after church and wanted to order off the menu, but they only do a buffet on Sunday. That was alright with us. The buffet was really good. The fried chicken was especially good, as well as the roast beef. We will certainly return.

The Royal is one of the oldest restaurants in GA. Although there have been different owners over time, the Royal always delivers good homestyle meals. The Royal is also a gathering place, especially in the mornings and at lunch. Sunday lunch is busy with delicious food.

Good southern food served in an old time diner type of atmosphere by very friendly staff. Seems to be a favorite with the locals. We found it by accident as we were just passing through town. Really a treat!

My wife and I were going to Tallahassee and we usually go through Ouitman, Ga. Saw the Royal Cafe and decided to take a break for lunch and walk around this typical Souther town. As I had grown up in Lake Park, a few miles south; it was familiar. We ordered two cheese burgers which were huge and freshly prepared,... More

Started our day on the road with a stop in Quitman for breakfast and enjoyed the veggie omelet, grits and a light freshly baked biscuit. Friendly service, good coffee and memorabilia photos reflecting their history since 1913.

True southern cooking with fresh ingredients. The atmosphere is that of a quaint diner that hasn't lost the touch of old style appeal. You won't find canned veggies here or food that all taste the same like those big buffet chains. They are open 6am-2pm m-sat and 11-2 on Sundays. It's worth the drive over from Valdosta to get a...

My husband and I are professional diners! By that, I mean we never have much time to cook so we eat out a LOT. My favorite Saturday treat is to go to Quitman Georgia and eat a cheeseburger, all the way, with sweet potato fries and sweet tea at the Royal Cafe, right downtown Quitman. The hamburger is "for real"... More
