Do you love great southern cooking? Then, this is the place for you. Try their breakfast buffet. All of the most amazing breakfast foods you can find. I love their dinner buffet. The fried chicken from Fred's is so delicious! Your mom will be jealous!

My first time at this restaurant, which apparently has been around many years! It's good southern food served buffet style, at a reasonable price. Our server was very friendly, and it's a nice place for Sunday lunch.

The breakfast buffet is 7 days a week and is $5.99 for 55+. The hours for the restaurant is 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. I'm not sure what time breakfast ends and lunch begins (call them at 813-752-7763).
