O'Neal's Country Buffet is on US-90 on the western edge of downtown Madison, Florida.  It's about 3.5 miles from busy Interstate Highway 10.  These highways are the main thoroughfares between Jacksonville and Tallahassee.

The building is not fancy, but that's the way a good restaurant with Southern cooking should be.

The restaurant features a country buffet with many Southern favorites.  They serve smoked chicken, for example, smoked on their own property. 

It's an "all you can eat" venture, so it's best to come in hungry and leave well filled.

Fried chicken, fried catfish, green beans and butterbeans, are among the daily vegetables, always fresh. 

On some nights they have seafood offerings like large shrimp prepared various ways.  The menu changes daily.
