I'd eaten at the Granite City location years ago, but the buffet at this location was recommended. Ate there for the first time tonight. I'm guessing that items ordered off the menu are better, because the only 'hot' items on the buffet that were actually hot were the chicken (if a piece was picked from the bottom), the rigatoni, and...

I had a good pasta meal, very tasty and the sauce was zesty. Plenty of food, didn't go away hungry. Enjoyed the experience.

We still had plenty of time to make it to the graduation and the food was delicious! We enjoyed the all-you-can eat fried chicken dinner. The fried chicken was awesome, as were the... More

Once again, relied on Trip Advisor reviews for a place to eat in a strange town. Everybody raved about the fried chicken. We got two thighs, a great salad, homemade soup, hot homemade bread, and choice of potato for $5.99. Almost felt guilty for paying so little for so much great tasting food. This place is a true treasure. No... More

Had dinner at restaurant with some colleagues. Had soup along with Spaghetti and Meatballs for dinner. Colleagues had Fried Chicken special, and had good things to say about it. Will return. Great Value. Fast service.

I live in the collinsville area and had a friend visit. We went to what I considered to be one of the best restaurants in the area. I was let down and embarrassed by the quality of service and food items ordered. The server was terrable, when I complained (which is unusual for me, I was told by the manager... More

If you visit Collinsville you must stop by and have the Ravanelli's Buffet Lunch. You won't be disappointed.

This is a family style restaurant. Moderately priced. The fried chicken is outstanding. All the food is very good, not gourmet but always reliably good. The desserts are worth the visit.
