“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

If going down 75 be sure to stop at exit 201 for some good home cooking the fried chicken is to die for some good taters green beans and so much mor to choose from the peach cobbler tops it right on off with some of the best sweet tea and great employees to serve it right on up. Never been for supper but i can only imagine excellent.
The only thing is for lunch a little high on price,

“Good People and Great Food... Consistently!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

Every time I eat at Buckner's, I am reminded of a time gone by. The owners are good people, the service is excellent, and the food is great! Buckner's doesn't try to be all things to all people. They specialize in good country cooking and treating people nicely... and they do it extremely well. This is something that I absolutely respect. There are so many restaurants out there that try to be all things to all people and are constantly changing decor, music, owners, managers, menu items, etc. I think that the key to Buckner's is that it is CONSISTENTLY good. You can always count on that. I couldn't eat there every day (just too much food!), but I always know that when I do get a craving for their chicken, creamed corn, green beans, stewed tomatoes, and peach cobbler, it will always be great!

Oh... and don't forget about the bluegrass/gospel music that they have free of charge on Friday and Saturday evenings in the music hall next door to the restaurant! :-)

“never disappointing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

Buckners has been a favorite for years! Nothing ever changes, and that's the beauty of it! Make sure if you go on a Sunday, to get there early! The wait can get pretty long!

“Slap yo' Mama Chicken!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

We've been going to Buckner's for 20 years. Love every trip.

We leave about 45 minutes south of the restaurant and if we don't get a chance to eat on one of our trips to Lawrenceville, we make a special trip about once a month. I suffer from chicken withdrawal if I want any longer.

The meal is all you can eat served off of a Lazy Suzanne. The tables seat about ten and you'll usually be mixed with others. We always meet some of the friendliest people each time we go. Chicken is on the menu everyday. They rotate a second meat or two. Vegetables are fresh when they're in-season.

I always leave stuffed with fried chicken. We've never been disappointed. Worth the 45 minute trip we have to make.

“The fried chicken should be world famous”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

The fried chicken is some of the best you will ever eat. The corn is great. The menu needs to change up more often. We can only go on Saturdays so I have stopped going because the veggies never change. It would be nice to see something other than peach cobler.
