We stopped by on a Wednesday evening to visit a cousin I hadn't seen in 7+ years and eat dinner on my way through on I-20. Not located right on the road, but easy enough to get to behind the Chevron station. Food was plentiful...More

The food is typical southern fare--catfish, fried chicken, steaks, salads--and it's always good. The staff is friendly, two of my former students work there as servers so it's nice to see them when we go. They have a buffet that is usually pretty good, but...More

We had an excellent meal and cheerful service. Catfish must have been swimming that morning! Shrimp obviously fresh. Perfect after a long day on the road.

You never know what to expect at Penn's. One visit the food will be great the next time, it's only passable. Same with the staff, it's a toss up. Your just flipping a coin when you go to Penn's at Forest.

Best fried catfish in the area at a great price. Buffet is expensive...$20 + per person... I guess it depends on what is offered....

Okay, this is a small town but one would hope for a descent burger. The place was dark (not in a romantic way) and the salad bar was tired - iceberg lettuce cherry tomatoes . I ordered a chopped steak and it was dry and...More
