Local family restaurant famous for their chicken and I see why! Generous portions with sides and salad bar served cafeteria style overlooking the family pond, farm or mini golf course. We often are here for several hours playing golf and conclude our time here with fresh baked pie and soft ice cream. A nice, good value family atmosphere.

After reading so many good reviews here and staying in the area for a few days, it was a worth trip to prove it correct. Being off season it was rather quiet but the food and service was spot on for a small establishment! Attached is a mini golf course and ice cream stand which I assume must flourish in... More

Not a fancy restaurant, but the food is good! You order like in a cafeteria - take your tray, get your food, pay, sit down to eat. The roasted chicken and chicken croquettes were both very good. Reasonably priced for the amount of food you get. It is a CASH ONLY restaurant, but they do have an ATM in the... More

Stopped here with family on a spur-of-the-moment shopping trip, when we saw a bbq place. Other reviewers have mentioned this is not a true bbq place, it is a simple family restaurant that, on the day we stopped by, happened to feature pork bbq sandwiches. Three of us in our party got them, and all of us agreed they were... More

Kauffman's is a very affordable and delicious family restaraunt. I travel 50 miles to have there chicken dinner and filling. They habe a small salad bar that comes witj the dinner. It is cafereria style. The restaraunt is always clean and comfy. It does get very over dinner hiurs so plan accordingly.

Always good every time...that's Kauffmans!! Good down home cooking that is always fresh and delicious!! This restaurant is always clean and tidy. The grounds and pavilion are always immaculate. You can tell they really care about their property, their business and therefore, their customers. Love Kauffmans!!

We have gone to Kauffman for many,many years. Food is very good. Never had a bad meal. Timing is everything. We try to go in between rush times. We were there 2pm. Excellent time. They have a small salad bar that goes with your dinner. It tends to get congested when a lot of people are there. Cafeteria style. Tends... More

First off, this is not a Bar B Que place. Repeat, there is NO Bar-B-Que here. Now that that's clarified let the review begin. I was staying at a local motel on business. Found this place on google maps and decided to try it. I went with the chicken since this is what everyone raves about. It's rotisserie chicken, no... More

Locals love this restaurant! Their claim to fame is their rotisserie chicken. I have given their chicken MANY chances to wow me but each and every time it has been dry and over cooked. Their dishes are down home country style dishes. Not my cup of tea but like I said, most locals I know go hear quite frequently. I... More

It's OK, but always crowded. Also has a miniature golf course right there. Not cheap for those on a fixed budget, but you do get a lot of food.
