We were recommended this place to eat before we visited Mammoth Caves. No airs and graces - just good food and good hospitality at an all you can eat buffet for Sunday Lunch. Only downsides are decor and rest room facilities which some may consider...More

A little off the beaten path but the food was prompt and yummy. We enjoyed the BBQ pork and country fried steak. Their BBQ sauce was delicious! If you’d like to avoid second hand smoke, this is not the place for you.

I came here with my fiancée after visiting Mammoth Cave. The service was excellent, and the pulled pork sandwich was delicious. If I was ever in the area again I would definitely go back and would recommend it for a quick bite to eat.

All you can eat fried catfish! Fried okra, excellent! Good sweet tea. The Fetching Mrs. Rat and I ate the same thing this visit. She was happy with the catfish, normally she does not do fried fish. The breakfast buffet is pretty good, you will...More

Food was okay, service was decent - what really killed the meal was the cigarette smoke. Very unpleasant if you're a non-smoker.

We had pulled pork sandwiches and the kids had chicken strips. Everything was fine. No complaints other than the chain smoking locals. Hard to believe we used to smoke in restaurants like that back in the day. It really distracts from your meal. Very nice...More
