Lunchtime during the week. First time here. It's like a small cafeteria. You get your tray and work down the line picking your meal. Great selection of meats and veggies. The chicken pot pie was outstanding. The veggies did not have a lot of sugar...More

Food is always good, sweet wait staff. The price is also a good value. Lots of locals. Nice history with eclectic country stuff on the walls. Several movies and tv shows used this restaurant for filming. Rustic country atmosphere.

A different buffet Monday through Friday and open for breakfast and lunch everyday. Full range of traditional southern foods plus sandwiches. Very good affordable food eat in or take out. I eat there everyday!

Old building... Southern fare... good pricing. A Cafeteria setup for choosing your food. Unfortunately, the appearance of the food was unappetising. Luckily the taste was better than the presentation

We went to Gene's twice for breakfast on our stay in Chester. Gene's is hometown all the way. It is in an old building right on the quaint downtown strip. Great variety of breakfast items including salmon patties on the side with your breakfast. Several...More

You may have to wait a minute on your food but it's well worth it. Friendly type of place where all the locals frequent

Hard biscuits, overcooked eggs, lumpy grits, half cooked bacon. Sorry, but the food here shouts complacency, arrogance and apathy.
