Outstanding Options!

The large variety of options for breakfast was impressive. The French toast was great. The Chilaquiles was better than some I've had at Mexican restaurants. The bacon was crunchy how I like it! The staff was attentive with coffee and water. The overall experience for the price was very good! I will... read more

If you're in a hurry- this is your place. Fresh salads and cooked options. Asian, Mexican, American, Italian foods are featured. Gelato and dessert bar included. If you aren't a smoker, and don't tolerate cigarette smoking. Find a seat towards the back.

Strawberry blintzes were good. Ham was good. Bacon was rubbery. Scrambled eggs were dry and tough. Mexican stuff was all good. Fresh fruit was okay, but not the selection I would have expected. There were tons of sugary pastries in a separate display case if that was your thing. The eggs benedict had rock solid yolks and were tough. (I... More

4 or 5 different types of pasta in sauce and every one of them was excellent. Beef brisket was unreal as well as the apple crumb in the large pan. I haven't tried the other buffets nearby but this is so good I'm not going to take a chance.

We participated in the Locals Special Thursday Breakfast Buffet for "2 gals. of gas" price. Of course, one would expect that they would not use Costco's price of $2.34 but inflating the price of premium gas by AAA to a total of $5.98 per person is not honest. Checking AAA price for Reno, NV, Jan. 8, premium gas is $2.81.... More

The food was good. Deserts were plenty. The server kept our drinks full. One of our biggest concerns at buffets. Over all would go back.
