"I had been craving some soul food for a week so I got on the internet and googled soul food in Alpharetta and of course nothing was found then I googled soul food in Roswell and there appeared John Boys. My husband and I visited John Boys on 11/20/11

Our visit was AWESOME! The food was GREAT and the staff is so nice and personable. $6.99 for all you can eat buffet with drink included. My husband and I had a great 1st experience and we will definitely be going back. I also had them cater my sweet potato yams for my family's Thanksgiving dinner." -Marshia M.

"Meat and Veggies – All you can eat buffet, including tea or coffee and tax for $7.50

Friendly staff and decent food. Good Health Department scores.

Gourmet food? Nope.
Fancy displays and presentations? Nope

Choice of at least three meats and at least ten veggies, plus salad bar, fresh fruits, soup and at least four desserts. Read that first sentence again

During peak business hours, you will more than likely be sharing your table with complete strangers that are hungry too. It is a popular place and they are in business to put butts in seats. If that's a problem, read that first sentence again

Not the fanciest place. No valet parking. Could probably use some cosmetic updates on the interior, but read that first sentence again. :) "

"Best home cooking in Marietta!  Can't beat the price nor can you cook it any cheaper or better.  Check their menu to see what they are serving.  All you can eat home cooking doesn't get any better than here."

"Just confirming the previous rave review.  Food's still amazing (especially the fresh veggies and produce on the salad bar) and price is still cheapy cheap.

Wish there were 6 stars, I'd give them all to John Boy's!"

"Delicious. Awesome price that can't be beat! Great home cooking!"

I ate at John Boy's this last Sunday and will be going back.

I had this aching need for some down home Southern cooking, and so started my usual googling and then Yelping…What did I find but rave reviews for a little place called John Boy's on Canton road…Well what the heck…Worth a try , so off I went….This is a great little place for those down home vegs and great fried chicken..The place was packed with older after church crowd..A very good sign…I was not disappointed…The food was plentiful,fresh,homemade and very well seasoned and cooked..Beat of all the price was under $10….

The best southern cooking. PERIOD. I always come here for my soul-food fix!
