We had about 50 guests and had Little Pigs cater it for us. This was the third time we have used them and have always been pleased. The food is delicious, attractive, and easy to serve because it is packed so well. I do not hesitate to highly recommend them.

They have a very good buffet,and it is clean.We enjoy it very much. It is not fancy, but I find the people very nice, and the southern style food tasty.

Definitely not the fanciest place one can go to, but the food was good and what is expected from a buffet?!? A lot of choices from the buffet and a person does not go away hungry. I was not too keen on the sauces - like mine a bit more sweet and thick, but worth checking out! The fish was... More

We were on a day trip & found this via internet. Cafeteria style lunch with multi selections: pork, chicken, turkey plus side dishes. Staff helpful and constantly refreshing dishes. Beverage & dessert included.

With all the warning signs blaring out the rules to obey in an area with too much food crowded together, skimpy little flimsy plates and the hoard trying to get to the trough...the food was adequate.

I have eaten here many times and instead of cooking a traditional New Years Day meal, we decided to eat today from the buffet. This was the right choice! The food is plentiful and the food was great. The buffet consists of too many choice to list here, but I'll try. Today there was a broccoli salad, potato salad, rotini... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on our way to visit the grandchildren. The all you can eat buffet was wonderful! Lots of variety and fresh tasting food! They even have a desert bar that comes with the buffet!
