This is a very traditional old time southern food place. Most people go through the buffet (but you can order things too). Don't expect fancy, it's very basic family place, but I think the food is great! It seems to be all homemade with care, which is surprising since they have about 40 items on the buffet and only the... More

On our first trip to wilmington we needed a place to stop and eat and the restaurant we wanted to go to was too far away so I searched for something closer. I love bbq so we decided to eat here. What, can I say...it's a whole in the way with only one bathroom stall for ladies and the line... More

Fried chicken is so tasty that we think it was marinated prior to frying. Eat it with the okra that was also so tasty. Mmmmm! If only we had more time to taste the other food maybe we could have shared more with this review. Owners were so friendly & even their staff were so patient in answering my questions... More

although this is somewhat of the place to go, I question that thought, this restaurant, cannot possibly pass any health inspections, it was gross, greasy, dirty, grimy, one toilet, and where the food buffet was placed was hot, utensils dirty greasy. the lines were ridiculous, I would never return or send anyone else there. Poor waitresses looked exhausted and overwhelmed.... More

This is a place that you go to for the food not the atmosphere. Not nearly as many choices as the chain place, no salad offered at all, but the veggies are much better and the meat choices are great. The fried chicken and pot roast was my favorite meat, and they had rutabagas, very hard to find. The potatoes... More

This place is just perfect for food quality and great prices. Great taste and a perfect blend of southern cooking at it best. I could eat at this restaurant every day. I have traveled for 38 years and have ate at all kind of restaurants in my life. But simple delicious southern food from Casey's will work for me. Yum... More

Down home southern restaurants come in two basic varieties - meat and three's and buffet's. Casey's is, as the name says, a buffet. And what a buffet it is. The stars are the fried chicken and the pulled pork. But there are ribs, pigs feet, chitlins, fat back and fried shrimp as well. The sides are exactly what you might... More

It's one of those places that doesn't impress you from the outside but oh my word is the food delicious! This is real soul food, you don't to there to eat healthy you go there to eat good! Best fried chicken 5 years in a row and you taste buds know why.
