Average food, was not being replaced fresh as needed, too easy to overeat.

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.

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

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

My husband and I recently received some coupons in the mail to eat at the restaurant so we went on a date night. From the time that we walked in the door until the time we left, we got nothing but wonderful service from everyone. The chocolate milk machine was out of milk and within a few minutes of saying...

Customer service wasn't the best, maybe because there were a lot of people in line. the selection of food didn't exactly work for me but the people in my party seemed to be ok. I ended up eating chicken tenders and fries.

We go here quite often, because it's great when you're not really sure what you feel like eating; but to be honest, it is usually hit or miss. The staff is always friendly and attentive to cleaning your plates, but sometimes the food is great and other times the food is just ok. The same thing with choices; most of... More

For what it is (a buffet joint), it's pretty good, low-priced (about $8.00 for lunch), and has a huge selection. Certainly, it's a place to get a person fat. RJT
