We eat here every time we are passing through the area! It is family style, all you can eat including drink and dessert. You will never leave hungry!

The date of my visit isn't right. If this is in fact the same location I visited, I've been there twice. I was a youngster, maybe 7 or 8. And I went with my family, which included my Grandparents (Granddaddy was a preacher), and his 12 kids, maybe 2 of my siblings, and a handful of my cousins. I believe... More

This is some of the best southern cooking I've ever eaten. We went on a Sunday we had fried chicken, ham, corn, mashed potatoes, green bean, stewed tomatoes, rolls, corn bread, and peach cobbler. All the food was great and the service was excellent. Will definitely be goingback.

While visiting with friends in McDonough GA, they took us to Buckner's. The main course was chicken and BBQ pork with all the trimmings. 7 of us sat at a large round table with a lazy susan in the middle (that's where they place the food). As soon as a bowl was empty, there was someone right there to fill... More

I have enjoyed every visit. Great food and exceptional service. It's like eating at grandma's house for Sunday dinner.

Like the previous reviewer, I've heard of Buckner's several times through the years, but had not gotten a chance to try it until today. Very similar to Bea's in Chattanooga, but Buckner's has some unique extras in the atmosphere, i.e. the spacious, country style building, the huge, charmingly tacky rooster outside the entrance, the "wall of fame" just inside, the...

I had read about Buckner's in several magazines for years but had never gotten the opportunity to eat there until last night. We were not disappointed! The fried chicken was some of the best I've had as well as the stewed tomatoes and other choices. The peach cobbler was a nice end to a fabulous meal. The restaurant was clean,... More

Buckner's is the place you take visitors or family when they come to visit, just to impress them with great authentic old fashioned home cooking. It's also the place you go as many times as your diet will allow a week! I expect some that go there have never experienced real, homemade fried chicken, farm fresh vegetables, homemade pies, puddings... More

This place is wonderful! The fried chicken was moist and flavorful. The veggies were amazing! And, the Sweet tea and Yeast rolls were approved by this Southerner. You have to try this place out. We stopped on our way to a family reunion, and we were not disappointed. Excellent!!!!

My husband and I always leave a little early whenever we're headed to Atlanta so we can stop and eat at our FAVORITE dining spot. The food is always good, hot, and freshly prepared. I love the family atmosphere and I especially love having the food right on the table so if you want more all you have to do... More
