My husband and I have lived in this town now for about 5 years and from time to time we venture out to eat at local restaurants. One of the places near us is another Barbecue place. We decided to check it out for somewhere different on a Friday night. Although there are other Barbecue places here in town that we have actually went to, we had failed to go to Ole South since we had been here and people had told us that they had the best Barbecue in town over Moonlite. We wanted to experience this!
The room was decorated country-style with gingham table cloths and the buffet looked delicious. The hostess and waitress were very friendly. It looked as though when you walked through the doors you could also purchase to go.
I noticed in the main room the seating was for around 80 guest but learned later they also had a private room for private parties. The guest who were dining around the room, most were older folk who looked like regulars or who had been coming for quite a long time just because of their persona of relaxed position. There were several televisions on the walls which featured several channels hence entertainment for the guest.
Buffet style and soups were lined up as well as several types of dessert to choose from. A very good selection of good home cooking seasoned very well. From my country girl upbringing, this southern food was quite tasty and filling. I loved the country fried cornmeal fish as well as the Barbecue pork and a fried chicken leg. Believe me, I try everything just to give it a taste. I absolutely loved the salad bar, it was fresh and I overheard another customer state that she came there quite often just for the salad bar!
As we set there, the manager came over and checked in on us which I found quite friendly and added to the home town feel of southern hospitality.
If I wanted to rate:
9 for decor/environment (cute for southern family style)
10 for taste (mamma’s home southern cooking)
8 for selections to choose from (If you are vegan your choices may be limited but delicious :))
10 for hostess/friendliness/service
