A good variety but the food was ok. If you're in a hurry it is ok and not what you would call bad. Nice place for a working mans lunch

Hartz is a great family dining experience. Fried chicken prepared the old fashion southern way. Full buffet with chicken and vegetables and dessert. Takeout is available. Great for kids because they choose what the want. Service is good. Always busy. Local regulars dine there often.

Here they only have the brown gravy, but it is SO GOOD! You usually see what gravy when there is fried food without the bones, like a chicken fried steak or chicken tenders.
