Hot, fresh and diverse.

It's a good chain. They need to change up the menu sometimes. Great fried chicken. Good soups. Salads bar is fresh and well tended.

We have been here several times, usually for early dinner or late lunch. We use one of the coupons from their ad and that makes the meal cheaper by 25%. It has always been clean with the food items plentiful and well stocked. The Hospitality manager is all over the room and very attentive to his customers. Our plates are... More

My wife and I visited on this occassion because we had a coupon and we were not disappointed although the place could have been cleaner. The food was above average but, lacking in some choices such as a wider variety in vegetables. The food that was there tasted great and will definitely return when we can. Thanks

You cant beat Breakfast Buffet at this price. A lot of selection. It gets a little crowded at times but the food pays for it

It's a pretty good restaurant, honestly, i don't know why some people are complaining, this is your typical buffet. My favorite item is Fried Chicken, and sometimes its not fresh enough, however, when its fresh, it's one of the best. Fresh sliced meat such as Roast Beef, Ham, and Turkey, is really good. In the trays, sometimes food is left... More
