Ate here with the kid's on a return trip home. I had read that this was "THE" buffet to eat at while in town and it didn't disappoint. It had all the same things you find at typical buffet's but done in a more sophisticated way. For example the pizza is cooked in an wood fired oven right in front... More

A good buffet. All the food was good and the Mexican food was outstanding. Clean and spacious. Ask the Mexican cooks for their special dishes.

We ate breakfast and dinner menu and the food was great! 6yr old and enough to choose from since she's a picky eater. Jose at the bar makes a great Margarita!

I recommend the mushroom ravioli, meat ravioli, tri tip steak (type of steak varies). There's pizza, Chinese, Mexican, seafood, several meat choices in the carving station. Huge salad bar. The waiters are diligent in keeping your drinks refilled of water, milk, ice tea or soft drinks. Wine is $3. Thursday is locals night, $4 discount.
