Better than McDonald's across the street. And we had the sweetest server! She made a spinach side salad for me that wasn't even on the menu. They have a dinner buffet for $10.99.

My family of seven sampled the buffet.. The roast beef and chicken were good, nothing exceptional. The post chop was tough. The salad was iceberg lettuces with the usual accompaniments. The prices were reasonable.

While the food was good, and the menu was very extensive, the title says it all. The bathroom was incredibly clean. It had all modern toilets and sinks, everything is hands-free except the soap dispenser. The staff could use some training on how to interact with customers, but they weren't terrible. If you are somebody that likes a clean bathroom,... More

Smelled like a dirty bathroom. One family eating dinner, the place was empty. Meat looked dried out and the salad bar was spoiled looking. We walked out.
