Good food. Just hard to find a place to park. Just have to try and get there early. Food is as close to home made as you can get. The dessert bar is the great.

Overall the food is good, but my favorites are the chicken and bread pudding they're the best. A must have when dining in or out. The only sad thing is they are only open during lunch hours M-F.

Eat here every chance I get. The buffet is down home cooking and I have never had anything I didn't like. The fried chicken is fabulous. Leave room for the dessert bar, especially the bread pudding. No one does it better. No frills as far...More

A very family spirited home cooked buffet place who knows their regulars and great lunch crowd and pricing.Conveniently situated downtown in the heart of the business district that draws a mixed crowd of workers and retirees who desires home cooked flavor.A must have in crestview.
