Johnboys's has reopened after their remodel. Food was mediocre. Best thing I can say is that the hot food was at least hot this time. I heard other customers commenting that it hadn't been the week before. Most items tried at our table were tasteless, with none to no seasoning at all. Value did not match cost.

I like going on FRIDAYS because that's the only day that they serve FRIED CATFISH. I must say. It's been years since I have had catfish this GOOD. It's fried just right, not salty or burnt or greasy. Each fish is about 8 to 10 inches long and has very thick mouth watering meat on it. The tails are so... More

Walked down the buffet and asked, "Where's the meat?" Salisbury steak (probably more soy than beef), meatloaf (definitely more bread and filler than beef), ribs (just bones covered in sauce), and fried chicken pieces (chicken bones, breaded and fried). The creamed corn looked more like a jello salad of some sort, corn suspended in starch. Most dishes appeared to have... More

Not much in the way of choices for a buffet if you do not like fried foods. Very big salad bar but only 3 choices of dessert. The staff was very polite and helpful.

The price was very reasonable, the selection was really good, and the food was awesome! I get a sample of most entrees and all vegetables and I never leave hungry.

We go to John Boy's regularly because the food is always freshly cook and prepared. They have a salad bar with the usual fare you would expect, plus dessert and ice cream. The hot bar changes slightly every day and they have a printed menu at the desk for you to take home. For example, one day the entree might... More
