Fodor's Review

Line up to get a reservation for lunch or dinner because, y'all, this is the place that Paula Deen, high priestess of Southern cooking, made famous. Alas, the quality suffers these days because of the crowds. (Locals will tell you that in the early days, when Deen was doing her own cooking, it was decidedly better.) Nevertheless, everyone patiently waits to attack the buffet, which is stocked for both lunch and dinner with crispy fried chicken, mashed potatoes, collard greens, lima beans, and other favorites. Peach cobbler and banana pudding round off the offerings. You can order off the menu, too. The fried green tomatoes are a great starter, and long-time fans vouch for the crab-cake burger at lunch or chicken potpie or barbecue grouper at dinner.
