I love the food and the service is great. I drive 88.6 miles. 1h 23min to get to this place. You can eat from the buffet or order a single meal off the menu. All food is fresh and made with love. The tea here is awesome also. I always get some to go. The desserts is hard to choose... More

I enjoy the fresh fried chicken. It reminds me of lunch on Sunday at my grandmother's house! The salad bar is everything you would want with several choices of how you would want to build your salad. Chicken fried steak with gravy is great with real mashed potatoes. The very best of desserts, chocolate pie, coconut cream, both with mile... More

We have a group of High School buddies from 1955 that drive from Dallas, Austin, Houston, College Station, and Tyler, Texas to spend the day visiting and eating. Food is great and plentiful, service good, and friendly. No alcohol served but lots of coffee, ice tea and other drinks. Very family friendly too

Very attentive and pleasant waiting staff. Most come in for buffet, but those that order off the menu are equally taken care of. A thriving business built on the concept of home cooked like meal's. What can I say, the food is literally straight from the can. The BBQ is disgusting and everything on the lunch and dinner menu is... More

One of the best buffets we have ever encountered. The food was fresh, homemade and a good variety. We enjoyed enchiladas, taco soup, sliced brisket and probably the best chicken fried steak we've eaten on a buffet. We also enjoyed their fresh bread. The pies looked great but we were so full that we didn't have room to try them!!

Stopped in today for breakfast while on the way to Houston on business. Been here for lunch but never for breakfast. Great selection. Great food. Great (and friendly) servers. I noticed a few folks eating really good looking pancakes that were ordered from the menu rather than the buffet. We opted for the buffet. At $7.99, it's a hard deal... More

Thought this might be a normal Texan BBQ joint. It was more of a buffet style restaurant with Mexican and BBQ. Service was good. The Only BBQ on the buffet was sliced beef and was tolerable but I didn't finish it because it got cold pretty quick an just didn't hold up. Stayed away from the Mexican food. Really only... More

We really enjoyed this place. The food was great and there was a lot of it. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The open faced steak sandwich was good. I thought it could use a little more flavor but I'm a little picky.
