Buckner’s started with a vision to serve people good food. Mr. & Mrs. Buckner, along with their two sons and their wives opened the doors to Buckner’s Family Restaurant in October of 1980. Most of the recipes were just family recipes, which means they cooked to taste just like they did at home. All the while keeping the backbone of the business focused on Christian morals and Biblical principles.
Since then, Buckner’s has grown slightly in size and greatly in customers, but the basis has stayed exactly the same. Given that we rely mainly on “word-of-mouth”, our customers are our greatest form of advertisement. We have succeeded not only locally because of loyal customers, but have also developed a following of out-of-towners and the occasional celebrities.
We start each day making everything we possibly can from scratch. We roll out our dough by hand and all of our chicken, pork, and beef is brought in fresh, cut by hand, and cooked right on site. Our stoves and ovens burn all day long to ensure that no matter what time you join us, you will consistently have the freshest most enjoyable experience we can offer.
Buckner's serves around 100 tons of chicken breast per year!
When you walk in our doors you will notice we sit our guests "FAMILY STYLE". We feel there is nothing more comforting and southern than sitting among friends and neighbors and sharing good stories and great food. Our large round tables seat 6-10 people and the entire buffet is served on our unique lazy susan that sits in the middle. All you can eat, served family style on a lazy susan. It just simply doesn't get better than that!
Buckner's is now in its third generation, with the whole family still working together to make the restaurant an experience that everyone will remember. With unforgettable food and unmatched hospitality every customer is sure to enjoy it!
