The Incredible Buffet In North Carolina With Almost As Many Desserts As Main Dishes


For 43 years, the family-owned Meadow Village Restaurant staff has served folks an incredible buffet of delicious food with as many desserts as main dishes. Folks line up for homemade seafood and country-style cooking. The choices are endless, from spaghetti to baked steak with gravy and fried chicken. Add your favorite side selections, such as mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, collards, and corn. But the most delightful part about this endless bounty is the impressive and endless dessert selection. This is where the choice is almost impossible to make, so have a little taste of each one. And it isn’t fast food, folks. This place takes a time commitment to experience the goodness in every bite.

It has since moved to Meadow Township in Benson, with a new name but is commonly referred to as Meadow Village Restaurant.

Meadow Village Restaurant started in Newton Grove as The Village in 1980.
Sometimes it's easier to tell how good a restaurant is from the outside.
But as soon as you walk inside, you will feel right at home as there is something here for everyone.
We prefer the crunchiest fried chicken.
Or have some of the tender white meat in a hearty bowl of soup.
Baked steak and gravy works too, with a pile of mashed potatoes.
And speaking of sides, don't forget to load up on them.
But this is why we came, and you can order some to take home 24 hours in advance.
Banana pudding anyone?
This one with the unbelievable meringue topping deserves a closer look.
How delicious do you think this chocolate pudding pie tastes?
The Meadow also caters. You'll find us over at the candy table — yes, a table dedicated to just candy full of fudge and other scrumptious surprises.
Check out the happiness these colorful appetizers bring.
And a full-on spread suits this fancy occasion.
Another reason to visit Meadow Village Restaurant is the special guests who periodically walk through.
Yes, friends, that's right — it's Santa Claus.
