I’m going to preface this with, I’m not one who frequents a buffet. I absolutely love the option to try many things on the menu for one cost. However, I personally just don’t eat enough to justify the cost in most cases. And to-go boxes are usually frowned upon. But if you or someone in your family has a large appetite and loves variety, buffet restaurants are a great option. While there are certain chain restaurants that offer buffets (and can be delicious), it can be hard to know which restaurants are worth the cost. You want to make sure the variety, quality, and freshness of the food are up to par. That’s why our friends at The Daily Meal created a list of the best buffets in each state. And it was a coastal gem that took the title of North Carolina’s best buffet restaurant.
Surprisingly it’s not one that specializes in seafood. Instead, it has a focus on those southern soul food classics, that in my opinion are vastly underrated and underrepresented in restaurants these days. To create this list, the food experts at The Daily Meal tracked down a bevy of beloved all-you-can-eat deals from every state. They then judged them according to food selection, décor, ratings on review sites, and level of local renown. If these buffets are on the pricier side, they made sure that they are worth the price. Keep reading to see what they crowned North Carolina’s best buffet restaurant as well as favorites from neighboring states. You can read their full list here if another state piques your curiosity.
