Busy during lunch with all the local workers chowing down. Great southern BBQ. Crispy Fried Chicken and the best peach cobbler in town.

Great buffet featuring BBQ, Fried Chicken, Fish, and country vegetables. Great food and a good value, but just don't overeat!

First time here. Parking lot is large and well lit. Restaurant is a well known spot for locals. Friendly service and good food. Nothing outstanding, just a good place to have a buffet lunch. Prices are reasonable.
