Very Nice Buffer

This is not your usual buffet. You may help yourself to as much salad and vegetables as you want but you may only select one of the four meats offered. My wife select the cod filet and said it was very tasty but wished it had been hotter. I selected roast beef and was served 4 nice slices by... read more

My wife & I were driving thru Deland and decided to stop at Cook's Buffet for lunch since the restaurant looked appealing from the outside. We were impressed with the variety of home cooked food & enjoyed our dining experience until we had to use the restrooms. The foul odor (smell of sewage) made us nauseous and, consequently, were unable... More

This was my second time there. My first time was last year, it was kind of embarrassing changing my child infront of everyone on a booth. I brought it up to one of the workers. We returned and I noticed a changing table! I was so happy that someone listened to me! The food is excellent and I love the... More

The food seemed to be of good quality and very tasty but I sure could have used another slice or two of their wonderful roast beef. The initial serving was small and there is a charge for seconds. The mashed potatoes were incredible as were the mashed sweet potatoes. The salad ingredients were rather generic but very tasty. I don't... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. If I could, I would like to respond to two issues. 1. Regarding the portions of our meats, as you can see in previous reviews, that most customers think that the portions are generous. Very rarely, do people have room for another portion. 2. As to the generic salad bar,... More

We met friends from Iowa here for lunch. It was an excellent buffet, fresh salad bar and nice vegetable selection. There is an upcharge for an extra serving of meat but the first serving was very generous so we didn't need another serving. The bread served right from the oven was delicious as was the lemon meringue pie. We will... More

Cook's always has such a great variety. Each time we go there is a little something different. We never get tired of eating there. I love the fish and my wife tries something different every time. The lunch clipboard special gives you everything for one price. We always have to get our dessert to go. You will be full from... More

You must stop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I normally have lunch at Cook's express location. However, numerous associates mentioned Cook's buffet cafe but I never found the time to go. OMG! I greatly enjoyed the lunch buffet. The food is ummm, Ummmm good. Extremely clean and pleasant atmosphere. The staff is very courteous and great service. Don't miss... More
