Labor Day Weekend

Food was good, typical buffet items. Very Good crab rangoon, and dip your own ice cream with 8 flavors to choose from.

Stopped by for dinner. Pleasant surprise to find a quality Chinese buffet in town. Food hot and fresh cooked. Good choice.

Better than most Chinese buffets. Owners,or employees, seem genially interested in providing a quality product. All of our selections were delicious and the quality all food was excellent.

An old building that needs cleaning inside and out. The food wasn't hot and really didn't have a lot of flavor. The glass partitions between the tables needed a good dose of soap and water. Food variety was adequate but just not appetizing. I would never return. The kind of restaurant that makes you wonder if they do health inspections... More

This buffet lacks creativity and flavor when it comes to choices. You know it is bad when the locals apologize to you and say sorry that they didn't let us know in advance. There are more choices in the area, you may want to consider one of those....I know that we will.

Pretty much like other Chinese buffets. The food was good but the building could use some fixing up and a good scrubbing in all the visible areas

We were pleasantly surprised the first time we ate there because for a small town restaurant off the beaten path they have very good food. The wait staff are very accommodating and friendly.

You don't expect much when you show up late at the only restaurant in town that's still open, and we didn't expect much at Panda-by-the-tracks in Alpine. A Chinese buffet -- how long has that food been out there? Not long, in the case of this nice restaurant. The selection was very large, in part because the locals know they're... More

Dinner in a hurry while on the way somewhere. Great food, typical Chinese buffet. Good food at very reasonable prices. For the beer drinkers, no beer is sold at this establishment.
