I visited this restaurant for lunch in January. This is a buffet style restaurant that offers american cusine with a down home flare. A lot of locals eat here and that says a lot ! Comfort food , not quite home cooked , but better than average. I felt at home while eating here, and the food was good ........ More

It's the best home cooked food you'll find anywhere and they put more on my plate then I can eat, but I sure try. Home town atmosphere where you're sure to see someone you know.

Very easy serving line, get through the line and seated quickly. Prices are reasonable and affordable. Parking can be a slight problem if they are crowded, which usually they are. Can't go wrong with lunch here!!

Serving line "meat and three" style restaurant with a rotating menu of southern favorites. Unexpected spot for delicious steaks on weekend nights! The shredded ham is a favorite with our family.

Small inside, but the food that comes from their kitchens is Fantastic. Price is good. Eaten there many times & never been dissapointed. Not open on weekends, When 5 o'clock Friday comes, it starts filling up.

Any reviews not recommending this place are from people who do not like southern food served by incredibly nice people. My only complaint is that they are closed on Saturday. If you visit when they have carrots, trust me- TRY THEM!!! The peanut butter pie is to die for. I have not tried anything that is not great. Ham, roast... More

I have eaten there many times and the food is always good for a steam table menu. The pies are amazing and they have several different sugar free pies

If you want made from scratch, home cooking like a S&S Cafeteria style, look no further. Start your assembly line of good food and sit down and enjoy. I ate there three times and gorged myself on everything they had, including desserts

I thought it was very nice. The Hostess could not been more helpful. The restaurant was very clean and well lit. It is Cafeteria style dining, for those who have never been to a cafeteria you go down a line and choose from the food that you view and they put it in your plate. You pay at the end.... More

Went here while travelling on the recommendation of all the positive reviews. We're pretty disappointed with the experience. The cafeteria style food bar had several trays of shredded meat to pick from as your entree, and as we looked a worker was pouring what appeared to be gravy over all the shredded meats. I guess that was to moisten them,... More
