Nice Meal and Buffet

Had Saturday night buffet. Good food and lots of it. Mainly chicken dishes but nice veggie and salad bar. The cheese biskets were great.

The food is just blah.. Manning Shoney's is so much better. The food was just over cooked, like it was cooked to death, no flavor at all, and you had to sit and wait for food at the bar.
