You can order off the menu or get the buffet. The buffet is wonderful. It has a salad bar, lots of country vegetables & quite a few entrees to choose from. I have been here about 4 times & it has been good every time.

Sign is not visible from the street but GPS was able to find. It looks like an old house. Very big on the inside. Good home cooking. Service is good.

The wait staff was friendly and very helpful. Our drink glasses were kept full. The buffet is amazing. Good old down home country food. Everything was kept fresh and everything I tried was delicious. I can't wait to go back.

Delicious with a menu or buffet option. Everything was delicious, the service was excellent, and I'll go back easily for more old fashioned country cooking!
