The people were friendly and the food was good. The food was solid standard fare. It wasn't special, but it was solid and substantial.

Stopped in for a Sunday buffet. We happened to be there in the peak of the after-church crowd, so it was a little cramped. That being said, the food was delicious as always. Everything on the buffet was fresh, hot and stocked well. The chicken and noodles are my favorite. Service was prompt and friendly.

The food is not good and the smell in the place is all grease. The service was bad. you had to chase down the waitress to get your bill. Never again.

We just love eating at places like this. Homemade food...the fried chicken was the best! Wait staff was very friendly. We stopped late on night and even though they were taking down the buffet they made whatever we wanted from the buffet fresh for us. Loved it so much we went back 2 days later for breakfast.

Good food, great service but we won't be going back because the flys are too annoying. Last time we sat in the last booth, away from the door back by the buffet, but a fly still found us.

The Good: local, homemade, good value The Bad: no really good dishes I've eaten here a half dozen times because there are few choices. This is the sort of place that I can really enjoy. If only the food were good. The decor is old, small, Midwestern town with 15 years of wear. The service is always fine, quick and... More

This is a great place. Stopped for lunch on a road trip. We felt welcome with warm and friendly greetings. The buffet had fried chicken and Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, veggies, salad... everything tasted great, just like homemade. Recommend highly!

Service was friendly. Our meal was buffet style home cooking. We were looking for something a bit more refreshing / healthy.

I love Ben and Joys....it takes me back in time to good home cooked meals. The chicken and mashed potatoes are awesome. Their breakfast is really good too. The servers are extremely friendly as well. An all around good place to eat!!
