Stopped by to eat while visiting Chattanooga. The food was very good and the servers were great. If you are a sweet tea drinker, they have the best. I would come back again.

We eat here regularly when we want a big variety of country style food. They have lots of food choices on the buffet and also a nice salad bar. The decor is nothing fancy but the food is excellent. Great desserts also.

We.were.on the road and looking for an off-beat/non-Christian place to try. This was perfect. Previous reviews were spot on! Yummy food, but the family atmosphere and ridiculously sweet servers made it fabulous! I thought pricing was great. For two adults and two kids, our bill was.under $35 as drinks and crazy good desserts were included. Now...if you don't like.chicken..you would... More

This is a local buffet restaurant. The food was good although the selection seemed tiny compared to the big chain buffets. The interior was pretty small and sectioned off into three or four rooms. There were only two tiny, dirty, one person bathrooms. Be warned they were not handicap accessible. B+ on the food and D- on the interior.

Loved the food and there was plenty of it but it is hard to get over the fact that your restrooms were not kept very clean. Looked like no one bothered to check if they were flushing. So my suggestion... More

Fair price for the variety of food offered. Being born and raised southern it is hard to get cooking as good as mom's was, but is worth the cost you pay. I eat here on occasion and find the food is not always as good as other times. I do not know if they have different people in the kitchen,... More

The place very homey. Like you were with family in a big dining room. The fried chicken was delicious. I tried a little of everything it was good. The price is perfect. The ladies were very friendly.
