We've stopped here in our travels previously and try to make it a point along the way, since the food is great, the service excellent and they're a friendly bunch! On this trip, my wife ate off the buffet, which was chock full of great salads, entrees, vegetables and desserts. I indulged in chicken fried steak off the menu (I... More

We ate here several times during our recent visit to the area. We were staying next door at the Days Inn and simply walked over. The hotel front desk staff had recommended Delaney's and we have no regrets that they did. The food is simple american food; similar to a Denny's or similar style restaurant. The staff is welcoming and... More

They had a buffet for ~$12 I opted for their burger, lattice fries, and baked beans. It was very good. I always ask for Medium rare on the burger and so few places actually get it cooked correctly. They did here. The fries were a little to done for me but I ate most of them. Overall a good meal.

On our way to Tennessee and it was breakfast time and we wanted to avoid fast food so we gave it a try. I had corn beef hash and my other half the Denver omelette. Reasonable prices, fast hot and friendly. It's not a date night joint but I'd go there again. Easy on and off the highway as well.

Once again, Trip Advisor didn't steer us wrong! Enjoyed a delicious lunch buffet at Delaney's when passing through the area. The foods and desserts seemed to be homemade for the most part. Very reasonable. Easy off and on to the interstate, ample parking. You can't go wrong!

we stop here on our trips back and forth between Minnesota and Florida. they have a bountiful buffet which is a little too much for a couple of old codgers like us. we order from the menu and the food is delicious, and reasonably priced. Great soup and sandwiches. clean, fast efficient service, just a delight
