The small buffet was perfect with tender ribs, fried chicken, fluff Jello salad and dessert. Quaint original wooden floor gives a Grandma feel. The bathroom is very tiny though. The breakfasts are speedy and hot.

This place is a dump and the food is worse. If you like a low temperature deep fry with extra cholesterol and bland overcooked vegetables... This is the place for you.

Food was decent, good portions but overpriced. Place was in need of a real good cleaning and some painting. Waitress was very friendly.

The people were friendly and the food was good. The food was solid standard fare. It wasn't special, but it was solid and substantial.

Stopped in for a Sunday buffet. We happened to be there in the peak of the after-church crowd, so it was a little cramped. That being said, the food was delicious as always. Everything on the buffet was fresh, hot and stocked well. The chicken...More

The food is not good and the smell in the place is all grease. The service was bad. you had to chase down the waitress to get your bill. Never again.
