“Friendly local people”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

Typical buffet food but catfish was surprisingly good enough for what it was. The breakfast buffet was far better than was dinner.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013

We ate here for lunch and dinner. It is an all you can eat hot, dessert and salad bar or order from the menu. It is good food. However, the mash potatoes were instant but the baked chicken, green beans and turnips were very good. Had take out salad back to our room at the Comfort Inn that is just across the parking lot for dinner.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

Ate there twice during the week... in my opinion, best fried chicken. Buffet style or menu with daily specials.

“Good Home Cooked Buffett”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2013 via mobile

Looking for a place to take the whole family for supper while visiting the area. Though we'd try Gaston's for the buffet. Interior was the typical Golden Corral type look and service. The buffet itself was clean, most food refilled pretty quickly (except the shrimp) and the selection was good. The quality of food was the best from any buffet I've ever eaten. The food had character, loads of flavor and cooked perfectly. Desserts were plentiful, staff was busy but operated in a timely manner. The restaurant was busy due to high volume of other outdoorsman on the area.

We will return to eat again next time.

“Searching for Excellence???”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2012

I travel to this area about twice a year and the food selections leave a lot to be desired. I have eaten at Gaston's, primarily because a business associate has recommended it to me, and found it acceptable. Granted, I have never eaten in the buffet... I avoid most buffets like the plague. However, if you go around back to the bar area and order food you should find it freshly prepared and tasty. Plus you can order a beer or other drink in an otherwise dry county. This is about as good as you can hope for in Thomasville.
