This is the third year that my husband and I have attended the Strawberry Festival and have stopped at Buddy Freddys on the way back home. This year, we dined on March 9, 2017. They have a buffet with an array of selections...everything from fried chicken and cat fish to fried scallops...especially loved their green vegetables and mashed potatoes for... More

We ate here after the Strawberry Festival. We wanted to try the various 'Southern' favorites and this seemed to be the place. We were not disappointed! The southern fried chicken are crispy, moist and delicious. The barbecued ribs were similarly good, as were the fried catfish, and other meat dishes. As northerners we mistook the carrots (with vanilla and confectioner's... More

The is one of the best family buffets we have eaten in. There is a diverse spread of regular "down home cooking" food that exceeded our ability to sample fully. Everything we had to eat was very good, the service was excellent, and the bill was quite reasonable. One of our relatives has this as a favorite place to eat,... More

The outside looks way better than the inside. Needs a face-lift inside. And the food is just okay. There are better buffets in this small town. Check ratings and reviews and you will see.

Superb southern food - second to my mother-in-law's cooking! Remember driving in from Seffner years ago to this place. Recently drove in from Davenport. Many great veggies prepared in numerous delicious ways. Beef, chicken, pork, and fish - fried and baked. Large salad bar with soup. Desserts include sugar-free items. Good atmosphere - buffet style - friendly servers and staff.

We had visited the Buddy Freddy's location years ago in Sarasota, but we're thrilled to be headed down I-4 and see a sign for a restaurant in Plant City (East of Tampa). Down home cooking in a large buffet style presentation. Nothing here is canned or pre-prepared. From collard greens, to fried green tomatoes, meatloaf, BBQ ribs, excellent fried chicken...and...
