Several of these have my attention. I would love to try their whole roasted pig! Then again, the next weekend's Farmers Weekend looks good too! They all look good!  Each one is definitely recommended.  I only wish I was not over four hours and a good amount of tolls and miles away.

Past these dates the season starts to begin again and while there will still be specials, the menus will revert to the usual and great Shady Maple Smorgasbord.

Hey, cool article. Yeah, I'd love that whole roasted pig too!

Question: Do you ever go to breakfast buffets? I remember going to Shoney's long ago.. they're in PA but not around here in NJ.

There is a Golden Corral being built in Freehold, near me, and they said they're going to have a breakfast buffet on the weekends. Have you ever had breakfast at a Golden Corral? Perhaps you could do an entry on breakfast buffets.

We have not been to a breakfast buffet in many, many years. We don't generally eat breakfast and a buffet breakfast for us would be more food than we want that early in the day. We used to go to a breakfast buffet that started at Midnight at a truck stop in PA that served a breakfast buffet - light dinner and then off to the buffet when it opened at midnight. Many, many years ago we would go to the breakfast buffet at Miller's Smorgasbord in PA but that has changed a lot since back then. Old Country Buffet has a breakfast buffet on the weekend. Most breakfast buffets are high fat/high carb meals - appealing to have all the bacon that you can eat but not the most healthy thing to do. When we could eat these things - way back when - it was fun.
