Buffet Restaurant DeFuniak Springs, FL Al was a retired restaurateur from Crestview, Florida where he and Roger, were competitors in the restaurant industry. A strong friendship was established and when Al grew tired of retirement they went into business to purchase a restaurant in DeFuniak Springs, FL. Al and Faye McLain owned and operated the restaurant until 1998 when Roger Leatherberry purchased it from them. Remaining a family owned and operated business for 15 years has been a blessing.
