Home-Cooked Southern Food at its finest!

what we bring to the table:

Best Value, Guaranteed!

You won't find a better all-you-can-eat deal anywhere. We stand head and shoulders above the quality of big chain competitors and cheaper Chinese buffets, and unlike them, we can guarantee a clean environment and genuine Southern hospitality. 

We're here to make an honest living, not nickel and dime you. Water, iced tea, lemonade, coffee, Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper, Mug Root Beer, Mountain Dew, Orange Fanta, Fruit Punch, and Sobe Water are free with any buffet purchase.

Home Cooking. Really.

Our longtime cooks have been preparing some of the same crowd-pleasing recipes for over a decade. The Nelson family guarantees you that not one single ingredient will ever come from a can but the potatoes in our pot roast and the tomatoes in our soups. The salad bars are fresh, never frozen. Our steaks are carved in-house. Our pies and cakes are all Sara Lee and other top brands, and we make all our puddings from scratch. Ok, so the ice cream is soft serve, but nobody's ever seemed to mind much when they're wolfing down a banana split.

Weekend Breakfast Buffet

Every Saturday and Sunday starting at 8:00am, we have a seriously under-appreciated breakfast buffet. We have staples likes scrambled eggs, sausage, and bacon, but we also have homemade favorites like biscuits & gravy, made-to-order omelettes, french toast, pancakes, and some world-class breakfast potatoes. Not to mention one whole bar of cereal, pastries, and doughnuts and another dedicated to fresh-cut fruit. Featuring a selection of fruit juices. All for around 10 bucks.

Start with a bed of fresh lettuce, then dress your salad with Ranch, Bleu Cheese, Honey Mustard, French, Italian, 1000 Island, Oil & Vinegar, or Raspberry Vinaigrette. Then add tomatoes, cucumbers, mushrooms, onions, black olives, pickled beets, banana peppers, pickled jalapeños, kosher pickle spears, ham, or egg.
