As soon as you walk into this place there's an odor. The carpets look like they were NEVER cleaned. While having lunch at a meeting in the private dining room I was welcomed with a huge roach that was crawling from behind the TV on...More

The reviews on this site are baffling to me. This was by far the worst buffet I have ever been to. The ribs and wings were inedible. The fried chicken is okay. The fried shrimp was almost undetectable in its fried wrapper. It is way...More

We love to eat here and make the 1 hour drive about once per month. Great buffet with hot and cold items, like Grandma use to make. Fried chicken is always flavorful and moist. The strawberry shortcake with real whipped cream is a must.

The last two visits to this restaurant were not good, the food is always great but they have a roach problem and I just can’t get past that.

Great Southern Buffet with everything you would ever want or breakfast, lunch or dinner. Not fancy and usually busy. Service is good and it is self service. Give it a try. This is not a gourmet dinning but family good.

If you like fried, falling off the bone slow roasted, and more sides that you can count. This is the place. I just wish that I was hungrier when I got there. Darn right cheap too. Only complaint...no beer.

We found this place by mistake enroute from Orlando to Busch gardens, they had a good selection of buffet foods, salads, desserts and drinks, the waitress even gave us drinks to take away with us... Was very reasonably priced with friendly staff

Great selection of southern, country or soul food. Take your pick, call it what you will, Buddy Freddy's does it right. Reasonably priced and all you can eat. Kinda reminds me of grandma's where you could get all of it for a hug, but since...More

Buddy Freddy's is a southern buffet with all the food that would include. I went for lunch. There is a huge variety of food to choose from and a salad bar. The servers were very friendly, but even with excellent service, this could not get...More

We're not 'into' festivals, and I honestly pay little attention to when they are. Strawberry Festival is VERY popular, so I imagine traffic would be awful.
