We are new to the area, but stumbled upon this great place - looking for authentic southern food. They do such a great job and the food is amazing. It's like being in mama's kitchen! Nothing I didn't like on the buffet and that's the truth! Very clean and the food is hot and ready. Lot's of employees keeping the... More

This place I'm comparing to other places I've traveled in the world. This is a piece of Americana/southern cooking at its best. All the good was great, from the purple hull peas to the fried salt meat. If you like this kind of food do stop in.

Traveling with a senior group and everyone in the group (approximately 45) had all positive comments about how tasty the food was. Was so good, we all directed the tour bus driver to stop for lunch on our return from our excursion to FL.

It's my second time eating here and I have to say that it was just as good as the first time if not better. The food tastes fresh and it's so much better than the one back home.

Went here as recommended from a friend. Went on seafood night and the shrimp was delicious. The chicken came out and I tried a thigh, OMG! It was the best I've had in a long time. Just like my grandmother's.

We drive between Tampa and Atlanta frequently and are tired of even the good chains. This place advertises fresh Georgia vegetables and even sells fresh tomatoes in the entrance. Food was excellent old time Southern cuisine: fried chicken, three types of okra, creamed corn, etc. All good.

If you are traveling I-75 and going through Valdosta, Georgia and don't stop at this restaurant you have really missed something. This is far from fine dining, it is just good southern food. We do not usually eat at buffets, but this is extraordinary. We tend to take small amounts just so we can sample more of the huge selection... More

My husband wanted me to see if there was a buffet in the area, as we were overnighting in Valdosta on our way south. Found this buffet on TripAdvisor with good reviews. Turned out it wasn't very far from our hotel. The esthetics and atmosphere left a lot to be desired. But the foods that we selected were all very... More
