Best fried chicken around (outside of Bea's)! Tasty sides also & a nice variety of desserts. They change the vegetables around but always have mashed potatoes,cole slaw, some kind of beans,and peas along with a great salad bar.

Great place to eat..a very nice family buffet. Everything makes you feel it is home cooked not to mention the fried chicken (finger lickin' good). You will be pleased.
