I have eaten with Terry over at Booty's. It was more good food than a man can handle. I need to get back over there one evening before long.

All sort of good fried fish, veggies, country ham, stew, and special treats from the chef (Flash)made it a meal to remember. And the really great part is two people get all they can eat for less than $29. It is great food and great prices.

It took a long time for the stars to align and for us to be over that way at supper time on Friday or Saturday but it was good to learn what a good meal can be had there.

It was great to meet you and the Mrs. today Terry. We will be back !!!!
BBQ too? You didn't mention it but that was in your original requirement.

No BBQ on the serving line but lots of choices otherwise. A few items were sent out by the chef and our server too. At the low price they charge there is money left to grab a pound of Q afterward.

Still haven't made it up to Booty's myself. Shame too...it ain't that far of a drive.

Back to something touched on early on in this thread, I ate the Redd House a few weekends ago. The BBQ and ribs they have on the buffet are just awesome. There's another dish they have up there that's like something cooked in a slow cooker. Got beef, chicken and some veggies mixed up in it. I'm sure it's got a name...but it's good.

Probably the only disappointment with the Redd House is their dessert. For example, their banana puddin used to be made from scratch. Now...its obvious that it's a box mix. It's nowhere near what I like for banana puddin....and I LOVE home made banana puddin.

Had the Red Minnow recently too. Was NOT impressed in any fashion. Likely won't be back to that one.

The Redd house between Jefferson and Nicholson is real good. Thurs night is country buffet, Fri and Sat is seafood buffet, and Sunday Brunch. Good food and friendly folks! Homemade strawberry shortcake is the Bomb!!! Payment is cash or checks only, if you go there.

Also Timís seafood buffet in Milner is good and reasonable too.

It is both. My mon used to order off the menu and the rest of us would eat the buffet.

They have very good crawfish and also have quail and frog legs. Or they did last time I was there. over a year ago.

IMO, the ambiance at the Blue Willow beats the food by a long stretch. I will not return.

i like a lot of some that are already mentioned.

buckners is good.

dillard house is good, but close to $30 now. they do let you take leftovers home, rare for a ayce.

ate at a place called daddy's or daddy's place in kennesaw(?). only had lunch one day so not sure if they have seafood or bbq special. food was good but was more impressed with the service and cleanliness.

garden patch is good for most stuff, but their seafood offerings were pretty sad. tiny shrimp and tilapia.
even worse was their prime rib special. i'm driving there dreaming of a piece of rare steak the size of a dinner plate with au jus. their prime rib was little pieces of well done meat about the size of a slice of spam.

been a few years, maybe it's changed?

Had some Redd House this evening. Dang near caused myself some internal organ distortion. Nearly ate my weight in that Calabash style fried shrimp on the buffet. It's been 5 hours now and I'm STILL full.
