Incredible homemade food. The country ham on Saturday nights is un-real. The country steak on Fridays is habit forming. Simply fantastic. If you luck out and have turkey, prepare for a treat. Just like moms. Ignore the bad reviews, if you want fancy, stay away. It is cash and check only, though......

Comfort food, always good, with good selection. Inside has been remodeled with new tables and bright paint. Can not beat the fried chicken and fish available daily. If you leave hungry it is your fault.

I joined a couple of co-workers at place they call the pig trough. That's a suitable name for many low price buffets. For just over $8 including tea or coffee, the price was not that bad for lunch. Although it is a country buffet and one thinks of fried chicken and the like, I was looking for at least somewhat... More

We have eaten at Caterans several times. I've never been impressed with the run down facility, no air conditioning, or the fact that you have to feel your dishes to make sure they are clean, but when they are on their game, the home style cooking can be really good. It's hit or miss. HOWEVER...Today's experience will be our last.... More

The food is not acceptable! But the worst part for me was watching a server refilling desserts then licking her fingers clean then proceeded to fill peoples drinks. Plates were dirty and crusted with old food. Will not be back!

I'm sorry to rate this poor but my 1st experience was awful. I love southern food but this didn't taste like southern food to me. I don't care that the place kinda needs a make over and they don't take credit cards or debit cards but it was just awful! The worst thing was when I started eating my strawberry... More

I have been going to Cateran's for several years now. I don't know why I haven't reviewed this wonderful restaurant before this. First, let me say that I am not originally from the South. I don't always like some of the things my friends like. But this down home, country buffet is the best. It is not a classy place,... More

With so many chain restaurants crowding out the smaller locally owned places, this one is a nice change of pace. Sometimes you just want a home cooked meal like your Mom or Grandma used to make. This is a buffet that begins with a small salad bar, then progresses to hot foods that include fried chicken, mashed potatoes (not instant),... More

Cateran's has been around for a long time, and it makes no pretense about being a classy dining experience. Upon entering, you wait in line cafeteria-style to load up your tray with food. They have a daily meat selection that changes (which you can check on their website) but most of the buffet is always the same stuff. They have... More
