“Good country food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2012

If you would like to have grandma's cooking this is the place to go! It is a buffet style restaurant and you get your money's worth. The staff are always friendly and quick. They have the best fried chicken in town.

“Good country cooking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

Large buffet right downtown. Lots of Southern home cooked food.
Parking not usually too difficult. Cute 50's decor.

“LUNCH!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2012

I really wanted to try this place but it closes at 2 pm. Apparently, this time of year at least, it is only open for lunch. I asked the folks at my hotel and they had nothing but good things to say. Sounds like a local favorite. Sorry I missed out.

“A great country buffet!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012 via mobile

The food was really good and it was of surprising quality considering that it was a buffet. The catfish was some of the bet that I have had and there was a line of people almost out he door by the time noon struck!

“Best Home Cooking Anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2012

We eat at Desi's at least once weekly. They have the best fried chicken of anyone around. The bread pudding is heaven in a bowl. To be honest, I don't even know what their other desserts taste like. I can't get past the bread pudding. It's a relaxed atmosphere with all walks of life eating great home cooked food. I've seen Judges in there and I've seen the mechanics from my oil change place. It's perfect for anyone and everyone is welcome. Staff is always friendly and helpful. The person that said the place was dirty needs to go back. It's NEVER been dirty and we've been eating there for years. It may be a little out of date, but that is what makes it so special. I'd rather them keep the prices low and leave off the China and tablecloths.
