Excellent variety of foods, salad and desserts; fried chicken and the chicken livers are some of the best I have ate. Only negative (but, it's not going to keep me from going back again and again) is I wish it were cleaner.

Pretty good down to earth fill-up station. If you are looking for a place with southern choices, and your sweet tea to stay full, chow down here.

The staff is always friendly. The is plentiful and hot with several choices on the buffet. Prices are reasonable for the area. There is always multiple meats to choose from and a small salad bar. Good place to fill up and head back out on the road.

Exit I-65 to the east in to Ardmore, the short distance is well worth it. We frequent the Buffet, mostly on Sunday after church

We had driven to Admore to check out the famous Dog Days flea market, which was closed for some strange reason that Saturday. We drove on into town looking for a bite and found this cute little place. It is little country "Meat and three" as we call it in the Mid-south. The buffet looked good for 4 adults and... More

My wife looked up and saw the sign "Fried Tomato Buffet". I turned around and pulled in. The building is very simple without a lot of fanciness but... More

Fried Green Tomatoes on the buffet every night. Good prices but the staff is so friendly. Great fried chicken, catfish, and much more. If you are hungry and need a buffet, its worth the few miles off Interstate 65 to come to Ardmore and eat Southern ...Sweet tea is the bomb.

This was a delicious surprise. The staff was friendly and efficient....but the food is the star here. If you are looking for good, home-cooked, southern, country cooking.....stop here! This buffet left very little off....on this Wednesday (50+ yrs old discount day=$6.50) there was a full salad bar including several mixed salads (ex: cole slaw, corn and onion, macaroni salad). The... More
