Plentiful Food For Little Bread!

My Wife and I decided to try this place last Sunday morning. When we arrived around 9am there were maybe a dozen other diners. The coffee was weak. The breakfast foods that we tried lacked significant flavor but was filling. The whirring sound coming from the ice machine cycling on and off every... read more

We've been coming to this location for 15 years. But today we discovered this location is permanently closed. It is a shame the economy has taken a toll on so many businesses. This was a great place to feed my hungry boys.

An all you can eat buffet close to Fed-Ex field. If you can't find something that you enjoy at this place - something is wrong. You will not go away hungry for sure. The ham, sweet potatoes, green beans, and bread were all good.

Every year for the last 9 years we have traveled to Maryland with a large group of family and friends. This trip is planned carefully at least 7 months prior to the date of departure. Each year we book and prepay for a buffet breakfast. For the past few years we have been going to another buffet, but decided to... More

Not your standard buffet. The food is of good value, being so affordable, yet also being of such good quality and preparation. Come hungry as each plate will leave you wanting more.

We went here for dinner on 6/27 & for breakfast 6/28. The food was great. They cooked that food...LOL... We can't wait to go back. Only problem, we're not going back to MD till October. I just have to dream about the food until then.

I have to be honest I have not been here in a few years. The food was never outstanding but it was a good price. Which brings me to my comment I went to the counter and the cashier asked if I wanted a drink, I said yes , coffee, he then told me it was almost $3 additional. I... More

Average food, Some things needed to be replacer and we're taking a long time to be replaced. Would rather eat smaller quantities of quality food than large quanties of average food. I had not been there for a couple of years, price went up.

Usually we are not much for chain restarants, but this visit was ok. Nothing much was overcooked and there were a few new items. One that comes to mind is the individual servings of either pot roast or pulled pork with preselected vege's in small aluminum skillets with handles, this was very creative and attractive. The pot roast was tasty... More

THis buffet has many of the same favorites- fried chicken, corn bread, salads, especially the cole slaw and potato saald, greens. carrots, pasta, fish of some kind, tacos, soups, steak and other meats that are carved. Everything is good , not too seasoned, but there is plenty to choose from. My favoirite dessert is their bread pudding- great! They have... More
