Makes golden corral seem like fine dining. Most of the fried items were not crispy b u t oil soaked. The fried shrimp were the smallest I have ever seen, the size normally used for shrimp salad. The mac n cheese was fairly good and the cobblers were the best items on the buffet with hush puppies coming in second.

Children do as the scrumptous deserts draw attention. Price wise I feel there is a gigantic waste of food. The waste... More

I love buffets. You can try new things without worry and you can eat as much of your favorites as you like. This place was wonderful. Our server was very kind and quick. The food was diverse and fresh. That's always a good thing. Very southern cooking.

This place is either our 1st or 2nd best pick for "all you can eat buffets" we have ever been too. Management has figured out how to do good food. The cooks are outstanding.

The place to over stuff yourself. Reasonable quality food in huge quantities. I have been there twice to accommodate my in-laws. Everyone in our group loved the fried chicken and chicken gizzards. Our waitress? was pleasant. My question mark is because she only brings drinks and clears tables...

Stopped for lunch while traveling on the recommendation of a family member. If you like Southern home cooking you will like this. Large selection, clean and friendly.. They have things I never tried but worth trying new things. Worth the trip.
