We have been in other Buddy Freddys and had a great meal. This one was okay but far from great. Rockers on the front porch were the first clue. Dirty arms and backs!! Inside looked okay until we sat down to eat and 2 roaches...More

We were at Dinosaur World and since they do not have any food on their site, we jumped in the car and went to the next exit. Buddy Freddy's offers a buffet of all sorts of food and desserts. There was something for the little...More

I have been to this location twice. Both times on a Saturday, and both for breakfast. Plenty of everything on the breakfast buffet, and some of the guys even got dessert. The servers kept the coffee coming, and all of us left satisfied.

I absolutely love this place. Collard greens and mac cheese taste just like home cooked southern food. Cornbread on point. Take I-4 to exit 31. So worth the drive.

The all-you-can-eat buffet was above average and fairly priced service was good and restaurant was clean. For three adults with drinks and everything it was $49 with tax for dinner.

The all-you-could eat buffet was excellent!. All the food was tasty just as southern cooking should be. And the tea was sweet but not too sweet!

The building looked inviting and we were seated quickly.it is southern cooking but I found the buffet limited. Hot n cold choices with desserts. The service was good, friendly and efficient. If you like fried chicken n southern foods you will love this place.

Great dining experience just for the homemade American dishes. Regional cooking at its best. Suggest fried chicken and salad bar. Restaurant is a buffet, but please eat what you take. Pisses me off to see waste and folks piling food onto one plate. Relax, you...More

We usually avoid buffets but we ate here following my uncle's memorial service as this was his favorite restaurant. We didn't regret it. It was pretty good. I had the meatloaf and mashed with cabbage and carrots. It wasn't show-stopping but it was good and...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.
