Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 November 2017 via mobile

Saw some of the previous reviewers and can’t disagree more. This place is a great value for what is paid, the food is really good, and the staff are exceptional. The restaurant was very clean and the buffet tables were kept wiped down. I have no complaints for this place and was very happy with the value. Don’t listen to the complainers, give it a try.

Our family is very particular in their eating habits, which makes it difficult at best to find a place with enough variety to satisfy all of them. Ryan's had that, but let their establishment run down. We were very pleased to see Southern Kitchen Buffet take their place after a through remodeling. We had our first experience there and it was not very good. The price was ok, and we were seated immediately, but the food was fresh, and warm, but very little taste on some and too much salt on others. The desserts were mediocre at best. The server hovered continually which made us a little nervous. It was almost like she was wanting us to invite her to join us. Afterwards, we took a poll from each member there, and it was unanimous that we would not return there for several months to see if there had been an improvement. We hope they learn from their mistakes as we could use this type of restaurant in this area.

Food was great, people are friendly, the owners are super. Everything is trial and error but overall I believe this place is on point.

From the time you pass the front counter after paying 13$ for 1 person to dine, you are greated by waitresses that act like serving is geometry or rocket science. I thought, its busy tonight so maybe she's just stressed but NO! In the words of Billy Mayes "But wait there's more!" The entire night was nothing but a disaster from not getting drinks for over 20 minutes to only coming back to check on us after a 2 hour meal. The food was absolutely terrible, undercooked, over breaded catfish that tasted more salty than if you licked a salt cube. Mashed potatoes never made it out once during our long dinner here. The staff...who I imagine are all teenagers were rude towards customers and pushed their way through the crowd at the buffet while yelling "get out the way, get out the way". 1 employee would straight push her way to the buffet bar anytime 1 grain of rice or 1 extremely small piece of food would spill out stopping the line and creating a grid lock jam worse than rush hour on the 405 in los Angelos, now i agree with cleanliness but at the right time and NOT with 40 people trying to push around 1 bar. The food selection is limited especially for meats, you can have heavily salted catfish, steak patties that ive seen given to inmates or fried chicken, thats it. Salad lovers are in luck though! 2 bars full on both sides with fruit and salad toppings and in a more open part of the restaurant. AVOID this place, its disgusting, disappointing, and demoralizing.

I'm not sure why the name of the restaurant is Southern Cooking when the fried chicken was soft, falling apart, and nasty. They had tacos with plain ground beef and no sauce, and the collards were big and looked and tasted like leaves on a tree. The only thing that was good was the service. It was about 8-9 of us and none of us enjoyed it. I will never return to this restaurant again. HORRIBLE FOOD
