If you like chicken pieces in different type of foods this is a good place to eat. Lots of food in the buffet line and a good selection of salads.

I keep trying other buffets but none compare to this one. The add fresh food all the time. They make sure the warming pans are the correct temperature. The owners are usually always present to assure quality control.

The food was cold, not many items on the buffet, were slow at filling up. There was hardly anyone in there. I will not go back.
