Gone downhill, still a good value, but won't be back

We had been to this buffet a few times in 2013/2014 and were quite impressed. We were there on July 8th for lunch, and it wasn't nearly as good as we had remembered. I am a big sushi fan -and a bit of a tightwad, so I look for good sushi buffets. I remembered the sushi being much better and... read more

Best Chinese buffet we ever ate at. Lots of choices. Real ice cream not from a machine. Crab legs were always full. This is the dinner buffet. Under 40 bucks for 2 kids and two adults plus 2 sodas. Can't beat that! Wait staff wasn't too good but the food more than made up for it. We have ate here... More

Great! Probably the best Chinese buffet we've ever been to. Bourbon chicken was amazing. Would recommend to everyone

No real surprises. Food was good. Service was good. Just a normal buffett. Shrimp sauce could be better, it was too thick.

Some of the food was cold above tasteless. Pineapple was fresh. Didn't try the grill. Stuffed crabs were the best thing there but nothing was worth $8.00 a person.

I visited Jumbo Buffet with my family on a Monday night. There is a decent selection on the buffet, unfortunately the quality was lacking. The hot and sour soup was edible, the sushi was horrible and old, the hot items might have been OK when they were fresh several hours before. The entire place seemed to need a good scrubbing...

This is the 3rd time I have eaten there. The first time it was great but it has declined. Friday dinner with fountain drink $16. No crab legs, boiled mini crabs though, improperly cooked with skin rubbery. Frog legs taste off. Fish hard/dry. 30 minutes getting dinner items out on buffet. Over cooked piece of self-serve beef on bar. Most... More

My buddy Groucho swears by this place. I cannot get him to go to any other restaurant on the weekend. I understand why. There is a ton of food at a cheap price. After a hard week of work, it's a nice place to unwind. The variety the JB has is impressive with some basic pizza, fried chicken, etc. to... More

The food is pretty good, and the staff is friendly. Besides the Chinese assortment, they offer "American" style choices like corn, pizza, and macaroni 'n' cheese. I would suggest dining here for lunch on weekdays to avoid the usual weekend price increase. Their sweet rolls topped with sugar are quite tasty.
