Good place for a hungry buffet buster!

Recently visited the original Christo's in Lexington for the first time in at least a year. Nothing has really changed, and this is a good trademark of consistency in my opinion. Food and service were both good and price reasonable. Since I went on a Monday, my drink was free - and it was... read more

I ate there with my mother yesterday. I arrived at 7:30 pm and the wait was short. Everyone was really helpful and polite. The buffet was amazing and the salad bar was fresh and tasty! The environment is really friendly and "cozy" and of course super clean. The prices are reasonable and the food is amazing. Everything we tried was... More

When eating here, if you want good food, order from the menu. Unless they are busy, the buffet items stay on there until gone. At least if they're busy, fresh pizza will come out periodically. Great wings tho

I had dinner with my family there tonight and the wings were great!! My server "Danielle" was also great, the best server we have had there. The others have either been very rude, forgetful and not very professional. She seems to be a very professional server. The only complaint I really had was the price of the desserts. Overall I...

My family loves their wings. The medium are our favorite. The pizza bar is not the best. I find their pizza to be hit or miss. The bar upstairs is great for parties or couples.

Once you are told that you can sit in the smart _ _ _ section from the hostess and you complain to management and they state we know that person has an attitude. Something is wrong when you are told that you can sit in the SMART_ _ _ section, and management says they know the employee has an attitude.

Food is good, but wait staff is terrible.They spend more time playing amongst themselves than taking care of business. They also nickel and dime you on everything you need.
