This restaurant has real down-home country cooking. Green beans and corn, sausage, pork, mac and cheese, fried shrimp, etc. Don't expect seafood restaurant quality food though, it is more the style of "slightly salty and highly fatty" food...but yummy. With a reasonable price of around $11 or so per person, it was a great deal!

Oh, my goodness! We came here on a whim and it was the perfect place to go when you don't know what you want. Stack, fish, shrimp, pork, REAL mashed potatoes, amazing mac and cheese, green beans, collards, fruit, salad...You name it, it's there. Oh...And the desserts! Just so good. Go. Just go. You will be glad you did.

My family and I have visited the Ole Times a handful of times, and it is always delicious! The variety of food on the many buffets is vast; there's something for everyone! The restaurant is HUGE, so you can still get a bit of privacy and time with your own family in this always-bustling restaurant. The service and atmosphere are... More

The wide selection of food available at Ole Times is vast. The food is consistently delicious. They do an excellent job of keeping the buffet stocked with fresh food. The server did a good job of checking on us. No one should ever go away hungry or dissatisfied.

This buffet has EVERY food I love. The mashed potatoes are real not powdered. The cream corn is awesome. Chicken fried just like I like it. There was NOTHING I didn't like about the food.

This is the place to go for good country cooking in Macon. It has a remarkable selection of meats, fowl, and vegetables, plus a few unexpected items. Start at the salad bar with a selection of greens, toppings, seafood salads, dressings, etc. Next move to the entree line where you will find BBQ, fried chicken, BBQ chicken, catfish, fried fish,...

My husband and I went here for lunch and I was pleasantly surprised!! I only went because of the reviews I read on here. The Warner Robins location in my opinion is not good(very bland) so my defenses were up, and I didn't think I would ever eat at another ole times!! Ok back to the macon location review.....the food... More

I only have good things to say about Ole Times! They have a great buffet loaded down with good country cooking! Their dessert bar leaves a lot to be desired, but if you are still hungry come dessert time it won't matter too much!
