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

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

This restaurant reminds me of the old fashioned buffet that folks used to go to a lot "in the old days." We were introduced to it by our now 92 year old aunt and she does like it. I think the grandkids like it because they had fun picking and choosing. It is not a place I would choose to... More

Best little secret is they make good fried chicken. The side dishes are tasty and they do have coupons for kids eat free deals. Good place to take the grands and they can always find something they "really" do like to eat and you don't have to cook. This is a buffet, it is reasonable, good food....it is not a... More
