Large breakfast buffet with great selection. Food was very good and kept hot and clean. Friendly servers kept the coffee full, and made us feel welcome

The staff is always friendly. The is plentiful and hot with several choices on the buffet. Prices are reasonable for the area. There is always multiple meats to choose from and a small salad bar. Good place to fill up and head back out on the road.

Exit I-65 to the east in to Ardmore, the short distance is well worth it. We frequent the Buffet, mostly on Sunday after church

We had driven to Admore to check out the famous Dog Days flea market, which was closed for some strange reason that Saturday. We drove on into town looking for a bite and found this cute little place. It is little country "Meat and three" as we call it in the Mid-south. The buffet looked good for 4 adults and... More

My wife and I were on our way to Cave City, KY from Huntsville, AL and passed through Ardmore, TN. We were starving having not had breakfast and it was 11:30 AM. My wife looked up and saw the sign "Fried Tomato Buffet". I turned around and pulled in. The building is very simple without a lot of fanciness but... More

Fried Green Tomatoes on the buffet every night. Good prices but the staff is so friendly. Great fried chicken, catfish, and much more. If you are hungry and need a buffet, its worth the few miles off Interstate 65 to come to Ardmore and eat Southern ...Sweet tea is the bomb.

This was a delicious surprise. The staff was friendly and efficient....but the food is the star here. If you are looking for good, home-cooked, southern, country cooking.....stop here! This buffet left very little off....on this Wednesday (50+ yrs old discount day=$6.50) there was a full salad bar including several mixed salads (ex: cole slaw, corn and onion, macaroni salad). The... More

Have gone there several times and the restaurant is going downhill and fast!! Tonight, my husband and I went there, his choice not mine, for dinner. First, after about 10 minutes my husband flagged down a waitress for Sweet Tea. We went to the buffet and the food was not fresh and just had a poor appearance. After a few... More

It's a little off the beaten path, a few miles from Exit 1 on I-65 in TN, but well worth it. The staff is friendly and the food is great. I can't imagine anyone eating everything but there is something for any appetite. The cobblers could have been better but everything else was super. The turnip greens were the best... More
