Kids were running through the restaurant and touching the food. Not one employee said a thing. Employees were too busy talking at the salad bar with a woman who works there but was on work mans compensation. No one came by to take the plates from our table. When we got up to leave our entire section had not been... More

We were hungry and the staff was so helpful and the food was just right. Highly recommended!! Since it is a buffet we were able to choose food items that just fit our individual tastes.

Nothing fancy, just a good family breakfast with a few twists. My son was happy to have tacos for breakfast! There are plenty of other non-traditional breakfast items on the buffet. There is also a cook to order omlet section. If we ever go back, we will definitely eat here again.
