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.

I HATE BUFFET-STYLE DINERS. And when I say hate, I say that with heated passion. However, we had to feed 4 children before made a 4.5 hour drive home, and the price was right. For $51 bucks we were able to feed 6 people. Can't beat that for a restaurant. But this is why I HATE buffets. Every time I... More

Very large assortment of seafood cooked in various ways, hot and cold. It was the best I have had. Well wort the price. The only downside was we arrived ed late so many of the items had been out awhile. THE good thing is there was plenty, nothing had run out.
