Restaurant details

ok let's just say you can make this at home! SERIOUSLY. Go to the grocery store and buy the exact same ingredients which would be the frozen food aisles as well as canned food!

THE only 2 items that appeared to be made in house and fresh were the fried chicken and the macaroni and cheese (pretty sure not real cheese but maybe something like Velveeta or something)

lets start with the appearance- a dive lots of tables and those old old old fashioned metal chairs with the cushioned bottom and back. some areas are a tight fit. (oddly enough isn't it a sort of stupid idea to place lots of tight fitted tables and chairs together in a all you can eat fatty food place?)
they have the same stupid painted "windows" on the walls that the last restaurant here had (and they were WAY better- wish there was still and Italian place here)

Staff- lots of them! get could really just use 3 servers! I mean geez the majority of patrons are getting buffet- not real hard to refill drinks and remove used plates. but any way they were all very pleasant

Let me just say be aware of some RUDE patrons- cut in front of you in the buffet line just walk up and some want to go the wrong way that the others in a line are going and take their sweet time holding everyone up! They appear to be regulars- but guess what if i was going to return (which i wont) I wouldnt hold my tongue- and you will be told off!

FOOD- here is where the REAL trouble is
fried chicken was decent- appears to be salt and pepper and flour then fried (cause it tastes just like my coating i do at home) BUT there are NO wings (my favorite) and the cut the breast in half but the small piece I had was DRY as could be

BBQ chicken was falling off the bone appeared to either be boiled or baked and then smothered in a dark sweet sauce

fried shrimp cheap previously frozen tiny little shrimp that is mostly breading

they have this "smothered chicken" that is their fried chicken sitting in this God awful gravy.
rice was that uncle ben's sorta bland nasty rice
mashed potatoes are the boxed kind
the salad bar dressings are CHEAP kind, the ranch was the worst ranch I have every had- SUPER SWEET like it was made with miracle whip instead of mayonnaise.

DESSERTs- none made in house. hard cookies and cakes that are less than good quality.

all vegetables appear to be from a canned variety and no flavor

The tea was the highlight- it was actually very good and not overly sweet!

SO if you want good southern food from a buffet then keep driving and go to JoMars next to McDonald's. the selection is HUGE. plus they have lots of great desserts, soups, fresh fruits and the salad bar is WAY better not to mention a entire regular menu! the buffet items are better in selection as well as majority made in house.
