Wonderful buffet with a wide variety of foods - lovely fresh salad bar and down-home Southern cooking. Even had some grilled fish and steamed vegetables, so could control the calories. Steady business, so the buffet is constantly refreshed

M & J's is pretty good as far as buffets go. However, their selection of food is small, but better quality than Quincey's, Western Sizzlin, Ryans, etc... they have pretty good fried chicken, and they serve different homemade medleys of vegetables, peppers, etc. that you won't find at other buffets. If you eat at buffets regularly, this one's good! You... More

I recently had lunch here on a Saturday. I was with my motorcycle group - we arrived right at noon with 13 hungry bikers. We were immediately greeted and directed where we could all sit together. Our drink orders were taken and we were released to the amazing buffet. The variety of foods was really surprising. Everything I tried was... More

Old fashion country cooking with lots of different meats and vegetables every day. The shrimp and grits were not to my liking nor the chicken and dumplings, The deserts were not the greatest. I will stick just to the meat and vegetables next time.

We are Friday regulars for the catfish. The vegetables are cooked country style with Appalachian regional seasonings. Deserts are not home made but good. Staff is friendly and efficient. You won't go away hungary.

This buffet style restaurant offers a lot for a little. The food is pretty good, big variety in a simple atmosphere. We have been here several times and never been disappointed.

Good fried chicken, okra and green tomatoes, creamed potatoes and meat loaf. Choices of cobbler today were peach, pineapple or strawberry. Soft serve frozen yogurt is nice option. Good service from staff and happy customers - mix of locals and visitors.

Great clean atmosphere, great cooking, even had fried green Tomatoes and cobblers. We just found this place a couple weeks ago on our way to GA and now we eat there every time we head home and back! My kids ate, my in-laws ate and my husband loved it! Gotta try this place!!!!! Yummy

I'm a regular at M&J for lunch and have eaten dinner there a couple of times. The food is always fresh and hot. Even though the place is extremely busy, the buffet area and the rest of the restaurant are kept very clean. My favorite M&J items are fried chicken, broccoli salad, and Brunswick stew. Service is always great!

We got there before the dinner rush, in the middle of the week. This place fills up fast! Staff is constantly refilling the buffet. It's not huge, but enough of a variety. The salad bar is decent and if you're not into fried foods, your choice is limited. However, with enough of a creative mind, you could get a nice... More
