Michael Hooper

I was not impressed with their bbq. There pickled beets were awesome!

Tony Brula

Always a stop on our way home from vacation

Michael Brunnabend

Good food and busy. Pleasant servers.

Darryl Decker

Great food. Great customer services. Prices was very low for a breakfast buffet.

Leroy Mcallister

Great barbeque!!! RV parking on North East end of the lot

Kathy Rapena

We had breakfast. I was amazed they didn't have flavored cream for coffee. Ihop, dennys and even quick stops do. My coffee is first on my meal. I didn't have coffee. They have been in buisness a long time. That extra makes a huge difference.


They have the best homecooked lunch buffet! Great waitresses as well. Highly recommend it!

Navaneetha Krishnan

Glad we found out this hidden gem on our way back to MD from OBX. My family was craving for authentic southern style food which this place has in abundance! Awesome buffet, kids enjoyed every bit of it and my whole family had smiles all over! Thank you Southland for this great service!

Christil Cates

Had a awesome time with family and friends here. The buffet was down home goodness.

Sandra Blithe

Stopped by this restaurant on our way to the Outer Banks for our family vacation this year and was pleasantly surprised.. Aside from the great food, our waitress Kelly was so kind and helpful with tips for our trip down to the Outer Banks. She made this stop much more favorable and we hope to have her again when we stop on the way home!

Mike Hockett

If you're looking for hometown food, cooked exactly the way your mom used to, this is the place. The waitresses are fast, caring and they remember you from week to week.

Jorge Vanegas

Great customer service. The food quality is very good, there is a good amount of variety, thought not too big. The chicken was amazing. The prices are super good.

Melissa Dupre

Great buffet. Food was fresh and hot. Service was excellent.


Just wanted the salad bar. Not the soup and salad bar. Was charged same price. Salad bar consisted of lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, cucumbers, chopped egg, onion and oil and vinegar dressing. Nothing else. No other dressings. Later waitress asked if I wanted dressing. I guess they keep dressings in kitchen. Ate a few crackers. A couple of fruits set out but had not been replenished.

James Carmean

GREAT BBQ. Made a special trip to eat here before returning to the BBQ wasteland of Oregon, lol. Fuel also available reasonably.

Miriam Dukes

The food is delicious and Marsha (one of the cooks) is always so helpful.

Bill Williams

Good southern comfort food, plus a food and gas station on premises

Gary Brandt

Excellent food and great service

Collin Flatness

Wonderful food, fair price.

Suzanne Wallace

Breakfast was great and can get it all day.

Michael W Carmeci Sr

Oh boy oh boy oh boy. Who doesn't love a great all you can eat buffet. Especially when you get there 1/2 hour before breakfeast ends and lunch starts. The best of both meals. Eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, corned beef hash, fresh fruit, then follow it up with some fried chicken, meatloaf, okra, tilapia, french fries, mashed potatoes and make sure you leave room for desert. A must stop on your way to the Carolina's.

Haley Kelley

Fried chicken and slaw were delicious!!!

troy cheek

If you are anywhere in the area than you've got to try this buffet out. Excellent BBQ and even better fried chicken! $8.53 after tax if you get a water and you cant beat that! Also very friendly staff!

Dick Boyer

The food was damn good.

Joshua Blanchard

Best place ever

Justin Bartlett

Honestly, I didn't find the BBQ to be that good. Very friendly and location wise the perfect stop between home and OBX.

Dan Frazier

Good stuff. Kids love the buffet where I prefer the menu. Wish I lived closer to go more often.

Anglea Mason

Definitely great food. Will go again

Zuri Martinez Morales

Awesome service, very clean and the buffet is excellent. The fried chicken is soooooo good.

Chris Smith

Great food, good place to eat. Service was great also. It is a bit hard to get in and out of since 168 is so busy, but it's worth the wait for good bbq.

Jeremy Carter

Very tasty food from the buffet!!

Maya Harpster

Best fried chicken!

brenda white

Good food and nice people

Nick Wilkinson

Good food, family friendly.

Catherine Ford

Best people and best chicken any were.

Patricia Minnix

The good, BBQ, Fried Chicken, rolls are fantastic as is the mashed potatoes. Ribs were dry and a little tough as were the pork chops, what was called catfish nuggets were actually tilapia but still okay. What looked to be like pot roast meat that was shredded was very unseasoned and Bland to The Taste, vegetables where very Bland and unseasoned as well. If it weren't for these things I would have definitely give it 4 stars, the service there is really fantastic we had a great waitress who catered to our every needs. So overall it is a pretty good experience to go there and have a buffet, we will definitely go back just for the barbecue rolls and fried chicken.

Margaret Peckholdt

Food good. Service friendly

John Huie

This place has one of the best buffets you can find anywhere. Great selection of fresh food and service is tops. All this for really great price.

Linda Mcfadden

Everything cold on buffet. I was sick 3 hours later and my friend also was sick that evening. Am not sure the buffet was the cause. We both had the sausage links.

Gloria Bumgart

Always a great place to meet family and enjoy a great buffet

James H. Dinkins II

Now wait this review is only for the buffet, not the sit down menu. Well I have to be honest, not out of this world. Not among my top 10. I will have to go back for the menu version. Standard truck stop faire with a side of fruit. Their are no frills, great place to fill your tanks and get going. For this restaurant sits at the right place of being inexpensive. It does have a great location for those who are on the last leg of their journey to the beaches or just a start home. The staff is friendly and make sure you give them a hug just letem know you care. If comin or going stop don't just have a coffee, make it a meal.

Angela Artis

Fried chicken the best

WTF alldaynow

Didn't eat there just went to get gas.

charles ogden

Best deep fried chicken. Fantastic family place to eat. Welcoming almost to a fault.

Lloyd Beasley

Good food and great service

Always smiling cheerful greetings. We frequent there a lot. Great food, they really care. Love the breakfast and dinner all you can eat buffets. Ranch dressing is like the buttermilk kind (my favorite). They also have a good menu items.

R Sauers

You will not be disappointed if you try the fried chicken not salty like most..and the batter couldn't be more prefect...

John Click

Great southern style buffet breakfast! Had grits and biscuits and gravy. Piles of bacon and sausage. Also had cereal, granola and fresh fruit. The whole family was happy. And it was reasonably priced.

Adam Elgart

Love the breakfast buffet.

Linda George

It very nice and so friendly.will come back and bring a friend.

Spence Tye

Fairly limited breakfast buffet but food good quality

Olesa Yoder

Good buffet food, love the hush puppies

Jerry Hart

I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak dinner with two sides. Instead of a cube steak, the waiter brought a grilled hamburger patty out. He then argued with me about what they consider to be a "steak." The sides weren't any better. For corn on the cob, I got a quarter piece of corn that was mushy. The mashed potatoes came in a small dessert bowl and was about 1/3 cup size. $10 for this!? Never again.

Art Wildes

Stopped there on the way back from the Outer Banks, NC for lunch. They have a lunch buffet that was very good with good service. If you are traveling through the area, I recommend you stop by. Not sure if they have Military discounts, forgot to ask since the buffet with salad and desert was less than$10.00.

Erin Jones

This place is adorable , and delicious!

Pierce Murphy

I loved my visit here because of how amazing the food and customer service was. My favorite thing to eat here is everything in the buffet on Thursdays and Saturdays. If you are looking for a great place to take your family or loved one to chow down on some amazing food then Southland is the place for you. They also have some pretty great deals I hear throught the week. I encourage you to research more and see if that's something you want to try.

Jim Hannigan

this is our Family's annual place to go to breakfast before the long drive home up North. Staff is very friendly and fun, plus the food is out of this world! I look forward to this each year!!

Phillip Reedy

Quite possibly my favorite restaurant around. Other than their salad dressings everything is like my granny made it and it has been good every time. The buffets are good and the offerings change by the day. The deserts around the buffet are the only things that seem lacking, but the molasses bread pudding things are ity of this world.

Joanne Roach

Home cooked meals

Mark Gable

Very very friendly people here, with a small but very good buffet.

Elaine Nelson

Went for breakfast, older building, price was good, food tasted good. Lunch looked better, they were offering fried chicken and it smelt good!

Jeanne Murden-Hughes

Been going to Southland for years. And I gotta say that the fried chicken is second to none!! Home cooking at its best!! Service is great too!

Alan Marshall

The best staff in the world. AND great food.

Laura Rawls

Another great visit. This place never lets me down

Martin Williams

I had the buffet it was over priced for the quality of food. Some items on the buffet were cold. Chicken and seafood was overcooked and dry. Bbq was pretty good. My wife ordered shrimp and oyster plate after about 20 minutes the waitress tells my wife they are out of oysters and can only give her shrimp. They charged the same price for the shrimp as was the price for oyster and shrimp combo. Oysters cost much more than shrimp but they would not give any discount. Very disappointed and will not go back

Steve Watson

Great service, delicious food and friendly staff

Christopher Alexandre

It was good but limited vegetarian options and most importantly clean bathrooms.

Beth Parrish

Excellent service and the best buffet. Food is delicious and hot. Homemade rolls. Have never had a less than perfect meal.

Maximillian Lawver

Love the home cooked Southern style buffet bar for both breakfast and dinner. No matter which side of the state border that you are on, it's well worth the trip. The service is just as good as the food.


Good food with decent prices. Most people purchase the buffet which has fried fish & chicken, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese (not like homemade), salad, soups, rolls, chopped greens (could be canned or frozen, but seasoned good), minced pork. Chopped chicken was not a choice on buffet or with the fried chicken/ BBQ platter. Great service-- Cheryl is very personable and fast. She has a great demeanor. My family and I were stuffed when we left.

Robert Brewer

Fun and great food and employees was good.

Margaret Devan

Delicious fried chicken is the highlight of their buffet. Nice ride from Virginia Beach.

Ann Kochenour

Breakfast buffet was yummy! Great biscuits & sausage gravy! Plenty to eat; quick & easy in and out!

Sharon Brown

Food was great! Best frued chicken

Kelly Miller

Great food, friendly staff, awesome prices! Really worth the stop. It's our go to spot on the way home from OBX.

GTR Mojo

The lunch buffet is really good, fairly unhealthy but really good. I recommend not going here too frequently if you dont want to gain weight.

James Chappell

The earlier review was wrong on Google part. I gave you a 3-1/2 rating. A few little improvements were need to get to a 4+. Impove a little on vegetable seasoning and dessert selections. We have eaten at Southland many times and plan to do so in the future. Service is always great & cost very reasonable.

Dawn Aleksich

Yummmmm best fried chicken ever!!!!

Darvel Conic

Bonnie Hawkins

Monique Jackson

Like going in the store part. Lots of thing's haven't seen in awhile. The restaurant didn't care for 1st the ceiling was leaking had to move. Waited for the buffet to start And the fried chicken was the only thing that was hot! How you put food out and cold?? Won't do that drive again

Great selection of buffet items. Salad bar was good. Waitress was very pleasant and efficient! Home made desserts yummy! Relaxed atmosphere!

terry thorwart

Bar was great and was kept full. We also had an order from the menu. That order delivered after everyone else had finished with their meals. This was twice in as many visits. We will need to think about coming back, for awhile. Otherwise the service was great.

Patty Cox

delicious fried chicken. good. mimosas

Barbara Biller

Delicious breakfast buffet. Kid friendly. great service for our group of 7

Patrick Ball

Best NC-style barbeque around - and that's coming from a North Carolina native. Simple and cheap. Looks like a gas-station from the outside, but it's a lot more than that. A diner on one side, a full buffet restaurant on the other, and a big shop in the middle full of everything from carpets to tourist nicknacks to home-made fudge and ice cream. Worth a stop if your crossing the VA/NC border. Better than Border Station in every way that matters.

Dana Ward

Awesome food and service

Chris Timm

Very good fried chicken and plenty to eat. The deserts we're very good too.

Slick Slick

This used to be a five star restaurant, the food quality has really gone down. I probably will not be going back there anytime soon.

gregory steele

All you can eat buffet it's ok nothing fancy.

Teresa Diorio

We got breakfast, the western omelet which was really good! The prices didnt seem to bad..but I was only looking at the breakfast items.. one thing they do which I hate when restaurants do is give a certain price for the omelet (just the eggs) and to add anything was a dollar for thing you'd like to add..instead of having different the veggie is my favorite but I'm not paying over $10 for it.. the waitresses were super nice

Sandra Old

Southland has been a favorite place to eat. The food is Southern best, the atmosphere is laid back, the service is excellent and everyone is so friendly. I give Southland five stars.

Christie Andrzejewski

Food was to die for. I could move to the south just for the biscuits and gravy....service was busy.

Steven Bradshaw

Stop here often. Great little buffet.

Monique Reese

Y'all talk about Farm Fresh chicken, you gotta try Southland. I love the buffet! Just had an event catered from them and for a solid week, everyone was still raving about the food. Plan a trip and go there. Me and my daughter go about twice a month. You'll love it!

ed mm

Really good place to eat,staff is really nice and polite.5 stars.

Mike Simpson

Good variety for a smaller buffet

Terry Watts

Ordered a 10 piece fried chicken to go. This is the worst fried chick I have ever had. The chicken was fried in very OLD OIL.. Some of the chicken was over fried and the dripping from chicken that was in the bottom of the old oil. Was on the fried chicken. You could taste the OLD OIL on the skin and chicken. Will not order fried chicken there again. Hostess was very nice

Sam Brandt

Amazing southern food. I was coming up from OBX when I stumbled upon this place. The staff is friendly and the food is savory. They offer a buffet but I got a pulled pork sandwich to go❗️

Jason Holt

Service was excellent, however they could use more variety on the buffet

Larry Lawhon

Best club sandwiches around.

Lindsey Gresham

It's always a tradition of mine to stop by to and from the outer Banks just to get a BBQ sandwich here. Love it!

Richard Ellis

I have only been 2 times. Both times the staff was welcoming and nice. The food was delicious each time. I would definitely go back.

Teresa Jones

The food was ok, we wanted pancakes or waffles. Ended up w waffles, well a waffle each. No sides it was just a waffle. It was the waitresses first day at lunch time. She sister ask for a cup of coffee so she brought it out and my sister went to pick it up after she left and it was cold. So we ask her for another cup and she said i knew i should hv made a new pot, then she went to make it. I think she was a little nervous. Even though each thing kinda went like that, we still gv a good tip because she seemed to be trying and we've been there before and the food was good. My brother in law likes their , i think its catfish.


I get a nice feeling coming here. I recommend giving it a go!

Charles white
