Restaurants in Tifton, Georgia

These are some of the restaurants we've eaten at in Tifton, GA.

Northside Cafe
1629 Tift Ave N
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 238-2487

Bubba stopped by to see if our breakfast was good. He sat down to chat. Then, there were introductions all around. Within an hour of having walked in the door of the Northside Cafe, everyone knew about us. And, we'd gotten brief bios on all the regulars present. Prices are downright cheap. Service is friendly. Expect to linger over coffee and don't be in a rush. Try the tomato pie. Northside Café has the best breakfasts in town! But, the lunches are excellent, also, with daily specials. RV parking is okay for camper vans or pick-up campers, but if you are driving a large motorhome or pulling a trailer, you probably will need to park elsewhere.

Los Compadres Mexican Restaurant
1005 8th St.
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 387-0790

Los Compadres Mexican Restaurant serves delicious Mexican food. Service is friendly and efficient. Atmosphere is quiet and pleasant. Prices are very reasonable. The lunch specials are downright inexpensive! My chile relleno came with a ground beef and cheese sauce on top, and a generous side of guacamole. Even the rice is flavorful! Los Compadres Mexican Restaurant is RV friendly, with plenty of parking.

El Metate
1021 2nd St W
Tifton, GA 31794
(229) 445-3713

Our lunch at El Metate was excellent. We were particularly pleased with the enchilada sauce -- it had an authentic red chili taste. El Metate isn't the cheapest Mexican restaurant around, but is reasonable, and servings were large enough that we had some to take home. El Matate Mexican restaurant is conveniently located close to the Interstate. It is RV parking friendly, as it shares a large parking lot with a motel.

Pit Stop Bar-B-Que & Grill, Inc.
1112 8th St
Tifton, GA 31793
Phone: (229) 387-0888

Pit Stop Bar-B-Que & Grill has been a mainstay in providing the Tifton area with delicious barbeque for years. They were good when we ate there twenty years ago, and they are good now. Service, food, prices, RV parking…no complaints from us on any of it. There is side-of-street parking for big rigs; last time we were there, there were four full-size fire and rescue trucks (no emergency -- the guys were on lunch break).

Charles Seafood Restaurant
701 7th St W
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 382-9696

Charles Seafood Restaurant was serving up delicious seafood when we first RVed in the Tifton area over two decades ago. We looked forward to going back -- and we were not disappointed. Fried alligator, scallops, stuffed shrimp, and fried oysters…that was on our first visit back, and all were excellent. Meals come with plates of pickles and raw onion, if you ask for them. Service is good. Charles Seafood Restaurant is a lunch place -- closes early. There's RV parking nearby.

Saigon Kitchen Thai Vietnamese Chinese Restaurant
724 W 2nd St
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 396-5888

Lunch specials at Saigon Kitchen Thai Vietnamese Chinese Restaurant take up an entire menu! Lunch specials come with soup and an eggroll. Bob particularly enjoyed the Sweet Mongolian Beef. If you like curry, but are afraid of the heat, their green curry is for you -- full of chicken and vegetables, with a very mild sauce. Fresh rolls, which they call "soft rolls," are not on the lunch menu -- ask for them. Our waitress did a fine job. Prices are reasonable. There's adequate parking for RVs.

El Patron
31794 Fulwood Blvd
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 251-9770

El Patron has a lunch buffet and dinner buffet, along with menu service. The lunch buffet is so good that we haven't yet ordered anything from the menu. (Though, I hear it is delicious, authentic, and inexpensive.) During popular lunch and dinner hours, RV parking could be tricky.

Royal Waffle King
603 Old Omega Rd
Tifton, GA 31793
Phone: (229) 388-9676

This Royal Waffle King is part of the Shell Travel Plaza. It is one of the few restaurants in the area with table service that are open on Sunday mornings. The food was good. The French fries were the best I've had in the state -- served hot and crisp. Service was exceptional. Prices are reasonable. Even the largest RVs should find easy parking.

Osaka Hibachi & Sushi
626 Virginia Ave N
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 387-6777

Osaka Hibachi & Sushi is a casual place to get rice bowls or noodle bowls. I’ve heard the sushi is good, but we haven’t tried it. It’s a strip mall, walk-up-to-the-counter-to-order place. Osaka Hibachi & Sushi shares the parking lot with the Publix grocery store, so there’s plenty of parking for even big rigs.

Ole Times Country Buffet
718 W. 7th St.
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 388-1601

Ole Times Country Buffet is a large buffet, full of southern comfort foods and favorites. We were there on the early side of lunch, and the food was very fresh. They continually restocked. If you are new to southern foods, this would be an excellent way to sample a wide variety of the regions popular meats, vegetables, and desserts. It is also the most extensive salad bar we've found in this area. Friday nights they have an inexpensive seafood buffet. Ole Times Country Buffet has a large parking lot, suitable even for trucks pulling trailers.

Little Caesars Pizza
214 18th Street East,
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 256-2983

The Little Caesars Pizza Hot-N-Ready pizza has become our staple for when we want a cheap pizza, quickly. What's more, the quality is better than many of the expensive pizzas we've bought at other pizza places. This particular Little Caesars came through as expected. If you are in an RV, consider parking in the Walmart next door -- after all, if you are like many RVers, you'll want to do some shopping there anyway.

Captain D's
1307 Highway 82 W
Tifton, GA 31793
Phone: (229) 386-0770

Captain D's is our "go to" place for inexpensive fried fish in Georgia. Make no mistake -- it's fast food, order at the counter, with plastic silverware. But when you want a cheap meal, with fish or shrimp, it's the place. We also like the stuffed crab shells and chicken tenders at Captain D's. RV parking is iffy.

Waffle House
2203 Us Hwy 41 North
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 387-8922

Waffle House is most always good for an inexpensive sit-down meal any time of the day. I like that  can get cheap burgers for breakfast, or anything else on the menu. And, I stress, it is sit-down, with table service. For the best deals and cheap meals, ask for the "Five Dollar Menu." The food is good and the service is most always better than expected. This location shares the parking lot with Harvey's supermarket, so there is plenty of parking for large RVs.

Asahi Xpress Japanese Restaurant
814 2nd St W
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 387-8611

Asahi Xpress Japanese Restaurant is Americanized Japanese fast food for the masses. It is an order at the counter and eat from throw-a-way plates with a plastic fork place. The building once housed a Long John Silver's restaurant. The food tasted fresh and servings were generous. I was disappointed in the lack of flavor -- I could taste absolutely no ginger in my Ginger Steak. Parking was crowded and crazy, even with a small SUV. The restaurant is also referred to as Asahi Express Japanese Steak House & Seafood.

214 18th St B & C
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 386-5758

A Subway sub sandwich has the potential to be healthy -- if you skip the meats and load it with vegetables. We get ours loaded with vegetables, so we are good on that part. But, we most always opt for processed cold cuts, along with it. And dressing! This Tifton Subway location did a fine job of piling toppings on the toasted meat and cheese-laden sandwich. The sandwich artist -- or whatever they call the young person who puts the sandwich together -- was polite, friendly, and made our meal to order. RV parking is basically non-existent in front of the store, but if you are also doing some shopping at Walmart, it is just a short walk across the street.

New China Buffet
1805 Tift Ave #B
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 387-8780

The New China Buffet is your basic Chinese food buffet restaurant, located in a strip mall. The buffet is available for both lunch and dinner. They gave us a take-out menu as we were getting ready to leave. I didn't think to ask if menu items were available for dining in or if dining is was buffet only. There's plenty of parking for RVs in the strip mall parking lot.

208 E 20th St
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 386-9280

A Wendy's Chocolate Frosty always hits the spot after a day of running errands. This Wendy's is in the same building as the Shell gas station, so while there isn't an abundance of RV parking, you can run in for a quick treat while refueling.

Golden Corral
190 S Virginia Ave
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 382-4121

The Tifton Golden Corral is your typical eat-too-much American food buffet. We hit the Senior Early Bird Special, making it reasonably priced. (As I write this, the Senior Early Bird Special is 2-4 p.m., Monday-Friday, but these things change.) The Tifton Golden Corral has plenty of parking, making it very RV friendly.

King Buffet
177 S Virginia Ave
Tifton, GA 31794   
Phone: (229) 382-5555

King Buffet's dinner buffet includes a variety of seafood -- mussels, baked salmon, other fish, several shrimp dishes, stuffed crab shells, and several other dishes made with fake crab -- so if you like seafood on Chinese buffets, you may enjoy this. For me, the highlight of the meal was the ice cream. The restaurant is located in a Tifton strip mall. It shares the parking lot with Big Lots, Save-a-Lot, Dollar Tree, and TSC, so there is plenty of parking for even the largest of RVs. The location is also across the street from Golden Corral.

Dairy Queen
1407 Tift Ave
Tifton, GA
(229) 386-2319

As it is with all fast food chains, some locations are better than others. We went to this Dairy Queen for lunch, one time.

- - - -

El Cazador
1103 King Rd, Ste A
Tifton, Georgia 31793
(229) 386-2126

We went to El Cazador Mexican restaurant in Tifton, Georgia, for lunch, one time.
