The hand painted sign outside says Juniors, and my hand written receipt did not have a name on it, but seems like the same place as cafe 51. It is an older house converted to a restaurant, that has a cafeteria style buffet located in the third room. The entire selection had: fried chicken, salmon patty, hamburger steak, chicken &...

Have always enjoyed getting some home style Southern cooking whenever in town. Selections may be limited, but the dishes they fix are super.

A good selection of home cookin'! We visited for lunch and had fried chicken and a choice of veggies. It was delicious and very reasonably priced for the portion sizes!

Nice owner's and employer's, beautiful old house turned into a nice small buffet with delicious country home food and good sweet tea. They are opened for lunch only, but worth it.

This is a buffet style restaurant in an old house. The food is delicious. I've never had anything there that I did not like and their green beans are so good I will usually get two helpings of them. It is very "no frills" dining but who needs frills when the food is that good.

Entrance is via back door of an old home. Their service is Cafeteria Style, It is a meat and 1,2 or 3 veggie type place. Their fried chicken is wonderful, fresh and served Hot! The turnip greens are just as my mama used to make. Cooked with love that's for sure. The entire meal was wonderful and I can't wait... More

I've had the opportunity to eat out on many occasions in my home town, but I've never heard my wife say so many times that this was the best food she has ever had!. I know Cafe 51 has been there a while, but we had never had the opportunity to go, I guess I know where we will be... More

I stopped here the other day for the first time. It is in a nice little building right off the town square with a small sign so look close for it but once you find it you will love it. They offer cafeteria style offerings. They had several meats and vegetables to choose from. I chose the country fried steak,... More

if I am correct this is the restaurant we ate at late and it severed really good breakfast. We usually stop gambling very late and it is nice to have some where we can enjoy!
