Nothing spectacular...

Looking for Chinese buffet near hotel and this came out. Not a wide selection of items,the food was ok, nothing really stood out. Wait service was ok. The cashier seemed like we were bothering her at checkout. Likely a once a year visit.

It was not bad, it was filling and it was fast... I always get the steamed shrimp at these places so it is a bargain and it was not bad... Good spot to eat in the area of the high way and Red roof inn..

The fried shrimp was delicious. The vegetable fried rice and vegetable lo mien was perfect. The cheese wonton were a little oily but tasty. Lunch is reasonable; dinner is higher, by about $5 p.p. more, but at dinnertime they have FRIED CATFISH. My husband can devour a whole plate of that! Lunch for two is $14.98, but includes free hot...

I got there at 4:00 they told me that they we going to put out fresh food. They lied and kept food that had been sitting there for a long time. The food was cold. They told me to come back around 6:00 and it would be fresh. The hell with them.

The buffet was average priced, average-sized... nothing too crazy. Enough vegetarian options to keep me and my son happy, and plenty of meat dishes for my SO. Until you brought your food to the table... it was cold. Like REALLY cold... not good. The staff are extremely rude when you ask questions or ask for drink refills, and don't even... More

I love Buffet. Knowing that the business owner needs to make a profit, I rarely give buffets a poor rating. I do understand that the quality of the food will not be o par with what you can get in a regular, a-la-carte restaurant. However, the food that they offer at this place is really of poor quality to me.... More

This buffet was the most expensive and worst tasting food ever. 12.99 for discusting food and very rude wait staff and manager. Asked for hot pepper oil and was told it was to hot for me. Made a fool of them by eatting all of it and asking for more. Then the food was extremely cold. The whole time we... More
