Love this place, mamma home cooking away from home. The chopped bbq was delicious. Tried the corn cakes and they were perfect. Great place for work and the family. It's a buffet style restaurant so bring your appetite.

This is a local favorite. We like to take family from out of town to experience the laid back atmosphere and terrific southern cooking served on a large buffet. Great value for the money!
