Wishing to go back
What a delicious and delightful local southern buffet. The owners and staff make you feel at home. The food is amazing and the peach cobblers a must. You need to request the peach cobbler, that is served warm with vanilla ice cream. Be sure to save room for it.
It's a small space, but big on local flavor- not exactly what you would expect to find next door to a PC repair shop. Or maybe it is. There was a small buffet, which was what most of the clientele who all seemed to be regulars were eating. They did have a menu, and it included several barbecue options, so I went for the pork sandwich and slaw.
In the short time I waited for my food, I heard a lot of small talk about who was renting what apartment and whose kids were trying out for the baseball team- the kind of stuff average people talk about over a decent lunch on a Friday afternoon. Most patrons were not masked, but I got the feeling no one would be looked down on for wearing one either.
My sandwich arrived piled high with mostly chopped pork, but there were some bigger pieces along with a good amount of seasoned edges included on a fresh roll. The one drawback was that it also included several pieces of cartilage that I had to spit out. The mustard sauce added some interest. The cole slaw was respectable.
I was pleased to have found a good sandwich that seemed to be freshly prepared, even if the cleanliness of the place and preparation of the food weren't exactly professional grade. While it might not be worth a return visit, I found the unpretentious atmosphere to be just what I was looking for. If you're looking for laid-back, this is your spot.
Home cooking and friendly
Home cooking and friendly service is what the Island BBQ is all about, serving breakfast and lunch in a comfortable setting. A favorite with the locals. Just good food, great service and plenty of it!
BUFFET WITH TASTY CHOICES
Good value on buffet for $11.95 you can get a selection from fried chicken, country fried steak, and another meat plus mashed potatos, macroni & cheese, beans, corn on cobb and others. The vegetables are good and not just something out of a can. Corn bread muffins & butter. Even have taco shells you can fill with ground beef or pork. Desserts of peach pudding, ice cream, etc. All of the above plus choice of drink. Location is in a strip mall tucked between a bait shop and a vaping store so don't expect a great atmosphere -- just good food and friendly service. If you don't want all the food of a buffet then the BBQ pork sandwich is good.
Island bbq is just amazing. Food is always good and hot. Friendly staff. And boy is that mike marsh a cute one!
