Good meal at a clean buffet

Stopped for lunch. They had a decent selection food and the location was very clean, including the restroom. The food was tasty. My server kept my water refilled. The cost was under $10 for one person; drinking ice water. I will definitely dine here again.

Unimpressed. The food was cold, old, bland, and/or mushy. Great variety, mostly gross. They want you to tip before being served, no wonder. The suggested $9 for bringing ONE drink is ridiculous at best. Spend another $5 and eat good food. Way too expensive... Unless you like old, cold mush.

This very unassuming restaurant is located in a shopping center with Publix off Ridgewood in South Daytona. Prices for the evening buffet are $11-12. Selections are generous and mainly American South cuisine with the requisite Italian and Chinese dishes thrown in. Huge salad bar and the most desserts I've ever seen at a buffet. Service is always friendly. We live... More

My brother & mom loves fried liver with onions, gravy & mashed potatoes. We used to go to Piccadilly's but they are not in Daytona Beach, Florida area any longer. So we mentioned to a family friend & she suggested Duff's, best suggestion ever. Clean & homesome. Good turkey, stuffing & gravy . Fried fish is good.

If you are a vegetarian you will find this place a delight. It has more options for both leaf - eaters and meat-eaters than most buffet restaurants. The food is fresh, well-prepared and most importantly, delicious!

My wife and I had lunch at Duffs recently 6/4/2015 and after eating there several times we were thoroughly disappointed in the quality of the food, the carved turkey was a pinkish red,the gizzards were crisp like leftovers, the carved ham looked red as not to be overcooked during the day, my lemon maringue pie was old tasting, we will...

Service was very good. Food was OK, not great, not good, just OK. Appeared clean. Not the best looking area. Setting is in an old, run down type strip mall.

I am not a fan of buffets....I never think they are clean but this was very clean. It could use a facelift but the food was good! The hot dishes were hot and the cold ones cold. There was a large variety of dishes to choose from and the bread pudding was amazing! The server was very pleasant and kept... More
