Durham buffet is bucket list experience

Jeanne Smith attends the Friday buffet at Main Street Café in Durham every week. She’s not alone.

“In a few minutes this place is going to be packed,” she said.

Café owner Wendell Wedel said that was his intent when he started the buffett 10 years ago.

“It seems like, when I go to a buffet, it’s a good crowd,” he said.

The main items that bring people back to Main Street Café are the homemade German items: baked and smoked sausage, sauerkraut, and vereniki.

However, Smith said her favorite items were the fried catfish, barbecued brisket, and homemade pies. “You won’t find better,” she said.
