Country Cookin is a restaurant we eat at fairly often, as it is the closest restaurant to us. It is very affordable, and while it may not win any Michelin stars, the food is far better than you would expect based on the prices. The salad bar is excellent, with a wide variety of choices.

If you are unsure of what you want... "go to" Country Cookin". They have a good selection of burgers, steak and seafood. The salad bar is fresh and amazing... in addition, the have a "sides" bar included which contains greens, soups, corn, gravy, cornbread, fresh baked dinner tolls, mashed potatoes, baked / fried potatoes, macaroni... and on and on... deserts...

We stopped here for lunch and enjoyed the wide variety of vegetables offered. We had the chicken tenders and a baked sweet potato and they were delicious.

Food has always been very good. Owned by very nice family. Wonderful variety of breakfast items, salad items and veggie items. Relatively good menu to order meats off. Would definitely recommend if traveling through.

I truly like this buffet. The sides, veggies, salad and desserts are on the bar but you order the meat entree to order. What a great way to keep the costs down! The waitress was very sweet and helpful Great country cooking!

We prefer the salad bar with a baked potatato. It has everything anyone would want in a salad The vegetables, fruits and extras are always fresh. There are several servers there that we enjoy as much as the food. I always look forward to visiting that restaurant.

The majority of our wedding party ate here for breakfast. The food was very good but is a buffet style which we were not aware of before going. The waitress failed to tell us that when we sat, we were waiting for menu's as we were not aware of the buffet, we had to ask.

We stopped by recently and couldn't believe they were open. The restaurant was filthy. The ladies restroom had an overflowing toilet AND they knew but didn't do anything. There was a biscuit on the floor near our table. The waitress kept stepping over it while customers stepped on it. It looked like a waffle by time we left. $20 for... More
