Its a quaint little restaurant with home cooked style food. The staff is very friendly. Food was very good. Parking wasent the best but worth the effort.

$8 for a buffet and a drink. You can't beat that with a stick. The food was southern (green beans, lima beans, corn, greens, fried chicken, fried fish, ham, meat balls, corn bread, cobbler). It was all a little on the bland side, very generic. But it was far from bad and it was ALL YOU CAN EAT for $8.... More

I read the reviews and decided to give this place a chance. I overlooked the exterior. The place is full of flies both alive and dead. The furnishings need to thrown away. The chicken and fish is by far the worse I have ever eaten. The corn bread....oh my. The cabbage and green beans were average. The meat loaf...I am... More

I found this with my GPS. It was just what I was looking for. It is a all you can eat buffet, and everything that I chose was very good. The staff are friendly, and treat you like a regular. The building is a little old, but don't let looks fool you. I have found in my travels, that some... More

I've ate most of the restaurants in Lexington and Loudon Square is the classic.. It's been around since the 1940's and is the cheapest buffet in the area serving only classic southern food.. Absolutely love this place.., it looks like a dump but is so dang good.. I remember my grandfather taking me here as a boy..

Ok, the place could use a facelift. But the food is better now than it was 40 years ago when I first went there with my folks. Nothing fancy! Yummy though.

Thumbs up for this southern food buffet! Great variety so you can find something you like! Variety of desserts as well. The waiter realized we had not been here before and was most helpful and attentive! Took our elderly parents and we were glad to see them eat!!! Reviews are spot on. Outside not scary, but tired looking. It's not... More

The exterior is very bland and uninviting; upon entering we were still a bit skeptical until we were greeted. The staff was VERY friendly and accommodating. This is the kind of place that makes you feel like came HOME to your grannies kitchen table. Mind you, not to her "fer Holiday Gatherin Dining Room Table" but the one in the... More
