Friday night at the Jackson Rancheria Buffet is different, and I learned a few things I wish I had known before the trip. The buffet is closed from ? to 4pm to prepare for dinner. At 2:30 there were perhaps 30 people already in line for the initial seating. We were able to take turns standing in line. Some staff... More
