So after reading the reviews I was thinking this could be a do or die situation ESPECIALLY since we don't look like a local 😂. Anyway we were greeted by everyone looking at us when we walked in and the young man at the cashier was very nice explaining the buffet or menu option. The buffet had fried and baked... More

I'm rating this excellent because of the service and friendly atmosphere. We went for lunch and weren't interested in the buffet so we ordered off the menu. We had a burger and a chicken philly. The food was good but the atmosphere and just listening to the customers interacting with one another and the waitstaff was hilarious! We don't have... More

The buffet was great and the "service" was as friendly and good as the south is inclined to offer. I ate 2 pieces of fried chicken, a fried pork chop and all the beets, collards and other fixin's I could handle. And this was for LUNCH. Nothing was "send back to the kitchen." Companions (the other three in our party)... More

They have a great country buffet during lunch time. I have been here and the food is always fresh and the sweet tea is awesome! I have never ordered of the menu. I have only had the buffet.

Well, kind of ordinary. I'd order the pancakes and not the French toast next time. My friend had the biscuits and gravy and liked them alot.

Locals mostly dining on southern style cooked food. Husband and I had delicious pancakes served by friendly waitress. Restaurant was very clean as were the bathrooms. We would eat here again and wished we had time to digest breakfast so we could sample the buffet style lunch with foods like turnip greens, cabbage, stewed tomatoes and fried chicken!!!

We stopped in for breakfast and were warmly greeted and served quite promptly. Breakfast was good but nothing special at an average price.The place could stand a good cleaning but staff is nice and it appears to be the only game in town besides Subway.

We ate there 3 times in 4 days! breakfast buffet is a must! Place could use some updating, but if you want local color, this is the place.
