“Southern Comfort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

In town for business so I wanted some local fare and hit the jackpot. I had the BBQ buffet with fried shrimp & catfish bites. Food was very tasty and cooked just right. Price was about $11 for buffet and an iced tea. Owners and staff were courteous, friendly and welcoming to this newcomer. The only reason not 5 stars, the floors were a complete mess between the spilled food from customers back and forth to the buffet line and the completely worn and literally splitting at the seams carpets. Highly recommend you go if you're hungry and in town.

“Best we ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

This place has everything you need. The flavor of the food poured out in every bite. The atmosphere is perfect for this type of style eating. Southern style hospitality with the food to match. We were greeted by the owner who was down to earth even though the places was extremely busy. The staff worked very hard to keep up with the high tempo but done a great job. We are coming back next time we visit from Virginia.

“Southern Soul Fest!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Oh my! Are you in for a treat! Ok, the place doesn't look like much inside or out. But the food is delicious and plentiful. Everything from pigs feet and fried chicken to banana pudding and fruit cobbler -- and so inexpensive! Pull up a chair for a true southern experience. Note: Casey's is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

“Southern food; friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Try the pigs feet or chitlins! Not up to it? Then there's a load of good eatin' available at Casey'. Don't see it on the buffet line? Just ask and they'll cook it up for you! Love this place and worth a stop!

“Authentic southern food in hectic atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

If you are looking for good and authentic southern cooking in great variety and unlimited amounts, this is your place. The price is reasonable if you are able to eat a hardy portion of food at one sitting. A meal with drink (mostly iced tea), tip and tax will run about 17 dollars. You will find all the soul standards as well as some less available items (pig's feet, chitlins, cracklins, etc). You are allowed to eat as much as you like and from the looks of most of the diners, many are going way past that. It must be said that this is not a soothing, romantic, and relaxed place to eat. Go elsewhere for that. This place is noisy, crowded, messy, and marginally clean. The surfaces and floors are past well-worn...partly because it is probably impossible to keep up with the volume of food and number of people served. The lighting is spotty, many surfaces are darkened by smoke and grease. The staff tries to keep the buffet areas cleaned up but there are way too many guests touching everything for my tastes. Our impression was that it was time to close the restaurant for awhile and do a major cleaning and re-fresh. The food itself is good, not great but the staff is friendly and attentive.
