Food was cheap, but lukewarm. We never had our drinks refilled. We had to ask for our bill, and that didn't help.

Food was very good and buffet looked average. Service was mediocre but the food is inexpensive and very good. They have a breakfast special for $3.99 which my wife ordered and enjoyed. I had omelets two days and both were excellent.

Loved the cheesesteak. Ate there twice. Fish with shrimp topping was good too. Hate their canning jar water glasses. Otherwise good
