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

You do have to walk through some smoke to get to the buffet area, but once there, it smells clean and smoke-free. Seating is pleasant and comfortable. There is a... More
