Southern buffet: bbq pork, fried chicken, fried fish. Varied vegetables, fried corn bread and fatback, and salad bar. Dessert bar with banana pudding, peach cobbler, and ice cream. Each day they have bbq pork and fried chicken, but the other meats vary each day.

Love this place, mamma home cooking away from home. The chopped bbq was delicious. Tried the corn cakes and they were perfect. Great place for work and the family. It's a buffet style restaurant so bring your appetite.
