The website Thrillist on April 28 named Casey’s Buffet among “21 of the best soul food kitchens in the country.”

Thrillist called Casey's “the real-deal, a soul food-lover's dream come true, and the perfect testing ground to the uninitiated, since they have pretty much everything: fried chicken, chitterlings, fatback, chops, okra ... you name it. Unlike many buffets, everything is fresh, hot, and scratch-made.”

The website, which distributes daily emails featuring its content, is published by Thrillist Media Group. The company defines itself as being “obsessed with helping guys live fun lives and reaches over 9 million of them across the globe, every single day.

“Seamlessly blending content and commerce, TMG digs deep to inform guys how to best spend their time and money across the lifestyle categories they care about most.”

Casey’s shares space on the list with Martha Lou's Kitchen in Charleston, South Carolina; Gladys Knight's Chicken & Waffles in Atlanta; and Dooky Chase's in New Orleans.

Earlier this year, Casey’s won Wilmington’s Encore Magazine Best Of awards for best soul food, best buffet and best barbecue. Encore polls its readers, honoring businesses that garner the most votes.

The July 2013 issue of North Carolina’s Our State Magazine also featured Casey’s.
Husband and wife Larry and Gena Casey own Casey’s, 5559 Oleander Drive.
