The lunch buffet at Chen's is generic but satisfying. All of the items taste like any other Chinese buffet in the country. They are cash only which is an inconvenience. This is 2014, not 1914. The lunch buffet was cheap, and the food seemed fresh.

The buffet is small but nice. Nothing that stands out really. Restaurant is clean. Didn't walk away thinking it was the best Chinese food ever but it cured my appetite for Chinese food. Good but not great.
