My mother-in-law loves to eat here. Well we do too. The cooking is fabulous. Wait staff is always courteous. They have a wide selection of home cooked vegetables, meats and desserts. There is something for everyone here. One caution!!!! It is too easy to overeat here. LOL. I always leave full and usually do not eat again that day. This... More

They did however have beef liver and onions which was as good as anyone's and chitlins (if you've never had them then this is good place to try them. The server I had was awesome also! Also cudos on... More

It is an all you can eat relatively country buffet. It does not have the best buffet food in town, but probably the least expensive. If you eat a lot and don't have much money it is probably a good choice for you. I personally prefer healthier food in moderate portions.

We used to eat here about twice a week. The food started tasting the same and there was never anything different to choose from.

We've eaten at BJs a number of times over the years. I always look forward to it. The last year it was Old Tymes, it had poorer quality food. Once BJ Fletcher took it over and renamed it, it has flourished and the excellent food has returned! I was shocked see a recent negative review. We never go Saturday so... More

As my wife and I left home we talked about where we would like to eat our main meal for the day. After discussing most of the restaurants in town we decided on BJ's Country Buffet (formerly Ole Times Country Buffet). We had not eaten here in a quite a while and hoped to be greeted with some tasty classic... More
