I like spicy food and this is the place for it. They have a buffet which is really good every day Monday thru Friday.

The food is fantastic. Go Friday night for the buffet. They catered our wedding, and we had their banana cake as our cake. Everyone loved it!

Excellent catfish and the potato salad is out of control. Maybe order to go on really hot days. Not the best air conditioning. Great Friday buffet. Oh...if you go there, don't let the doors close on there own. They have a tendency to slam shut.

The building looks like it used to be a Taco Bell, so nothing fancy-looking. But walk in, and the atmosphere has character because of the employees. I found it enjoyable. As for the food, I had the oxtail stew and the veggies, etc. that come...More
