Average restaurant

It had your average salad bar, and entrees that you can find anywhere and the food was not very remarkable or memorable, just your average teenage run restaurant!

Came in with family for lunch. We ordered two burgers, and a chicken platter. The chicken fingers were very dark looking, looking over cooked. Sure enough, the ends of the chicken fillets were hard and almost all of the fillet was tough to eat/chew. I told our waitress, who just grabbed my plate and took it away with no word... More

Not crowded on a Saturday morning. Service and food were both okay. We chose to order off the menu rather than eat off the buffet. Wish servers would use trays, my coffee was carried to the table with a bowl of creamers sitting on top of the mug.

We had the great misfortune of choosing this place on December 27, 2014. There were 5 of us, and we arrived at approximately 12pm. This place was NOT busy at all. Even so, it took 35 minutes for the food to arrive, and, the fish was burned, the burger was burned and served without any lettuce, tomato, etc. The waitress... More

We went here after seeing long lines and no available parking at the two of the Waffle Shops, so our Son thought about this place as we were headed to Denny's. It was a good decision. We arrived just as they were ending their buffet and ordered off the menu. We had various breakfast items - including grilled stickies. The... More

We went to eat n park one week ago because we wanted to try it, when we got there we were the only customers there, not a good sign, maybe because of the hour (2pm)? The place is clean, big and nice, but we found the menu very poor, they tried their best but the sandwiches were only average, the... More

Pleasantly surprised, I hadn't eaten here in a while. Granted, it was not on a crowded day. But the value was better than other local restaurants, the menu choices were wide, very rapid service, and food tastes good. There is even a buffet bar which looks more appealing than most do. If there's not a line out the door, it's... More

We stopped in here for breakfast, it is obvious they push the breakfast buffet and it is just quicker to do that when you are in a hurry. The coffee was good and our male server was on top of it. Thanks.

The waffle shop had such a long line and we were cranky and hungry so we stopped in here…worst decision ever. When they sat us, the hostess used a dirty rag to wipe down our seats (that were filthy) and then did nothing to dry it off…they expected us to sit in heavy wetness (wasn't just a damp rag). Then,...
