Pans and pans of great food. Down-home southern cooking. Lots and lots of fried food. Everything was delicious. Great Dessert area as well. You need self-control here because it's very easy to over eat. If you're hungry this is the place to go.

We dined here on a Sunday afternoon and it was busy as one would expect. The buffet was clean and well stocked. Service was good and price was reasonable. Good food and plenty of it.

The buffet is standard, clean, and the food is well prepared. The salad bar is limited, but adequate. The wait staff are friendly and attentive. Overall, a good experience.

If you have never eaten here GO! You will not be disappointed. Sunday's are a little bit higher than regular weekdays but even then it is a bargain. Start off with a salad bar with what I feel is filled with over 100 items -...More
