We try to stop and eat at Pioneer nearly every time we visit family in the Asheboro area. It is a local buffet and menu restaurant that won't disappoint. The buffet has a good selection of meats and vegetables along with a terrific salad bar. My wife and I usually order the ribeye steak off of the menu. It comes... More

The place was packed so I of course had to see for myself. I went in and the place was like a time machine and brought me back to 1980, very dated decor but the staff was super friendly. There was a huge buffet that had everything in it but I chose to get a NY strip and it was... More

We had not been here for about a year or more, so we decided another trip was in order. This restaurant is clean, well staffed and has many hot and cold food bars. The theme seems to be country cooking and they provide lots of options. There was one large hot food bar with just vegetables and sides. From the... More

Pioneer Family Restaurant was recommended to us for its buffet, but we were disappointed and found it to only be average in number of selections and quality. It was obviously popular with locals and was at full capacity. The carving station had good prime rib and turkey and the sweet potato casserole was very good but other choices were just... More

Stopped by here after an event in Greensboro where we didn't get much in the way of food. This place was just what we needed. Homestyle cooking with plenty of options available on the buffet. Less expensive individual menu items are also available. Overall food was tasty and this is a restaurant I'd return to if in the area again.

As with any buffet there are usually things that are good and some just OK. The Pioneer is no different. It reminds you of a large high school cafeteria. However, the staff is very friendly and there is a great variety of food. If you are a big eater this is for you. Prices are very reasonable. Try it and... More

My husband and I love going to this restaurant. It is good Home cooking, just what you want for a Sunday afternoon dinner. The staff is friendly and kind. The only problem might be the very large crowd and parking, especially on Holidays. You might want to be careful and not stuff yourself too much, for this is easily to... More

The quality of the food prepared was very tasty and well done. This is a buffet bar type of family restaurant. I particularly enjoyed the sweet potato casserole and the fried chicken! A hearty thumbs up to the owners of this gem of a restaurant!
