The food is great country cooking, served family style whether it's your family or someone elses. Excellent chicken, many veggies.

My husband and I only go when we are very hungry! Fridays are our favorite because the menu includes their wonderful barbecue and whole boiled potatoes.

This place is extremely expensive but a really fun eating experience! We had never been here and are here from Colorado but were told we had to go! After paying you are shown to a round table where you may be seated with some other people already seated. (We were not but saw it was possible, which just adds to... More

I have had this place recommended more than once. Well it is expensive. $17.99 and honestly if u are not a big eater. It is a total rip off. Was it good food? Sure. However, nothing to write home about. It was normal southern fare with peach cobbler. I probably ate $5.00 worth of food. If you are not into... More

I love making the short trip to Buckner's for some of their delicious food! Every thing they prepare is yummy! Just like Grandma use to make on Sunday's after Church! Great and Friendly staff. Extremely clean facility. Well worth the money to eat there. Great veggies and bbq brisket - and the fried chicken is perfection!

Our family members have eaten here before and loved it. We drove there on Dec. 22nd and they had a sign up saying they are closed for Christmas until Dec. 29th. Just wanted others to know too.

The date of my visit isn't right. If this is in fact the same location I visited, I've been there twice. I was a youngster, maybe 7 or 8. And I went with my family, which included my Grandparents (Granddaddy was a preacher), and his 12 kids, maybe 2 of my siblings, and a handful of my cousins. I believe... More

This is some of the best southern cooking I've ever eaten. We went on a Sunday we had fried chicken, ham, corn, mashed potatoes, green bean, stewed tomatoes, rolls, corn bread, and peach cobbler. All the food was great and the service was excellent. Will definitely be goingback.

While visiting with friends in McDonough GA, they took us to Buckner's. The main course was chicken and BBQ pork with all the trimmings. 7 of us sat at a large round table with a lazy susan in the middle (that's where they place the food). As soon as a bowl was empty, there was someone right there to fill... More
