SUPER HIBACHI BUFFET AND GRILL

Huge grill where you can pick your steak, fish, veggies plus rice and have them cook it up in a few minutes. Very good variety. Would recomend. Ya... read more

We were absolutely stuffed by the time we waddled out of this location. Our Days Inn clerk turned us on to this eatery, so glad we went here. Too much food to even chose from! Hibachi & Sushi also available for those looking for fresh as well.

Lots of food to choose from. Lobby has a large pond with fish. You can purchase a cup of food to feed the fish. Friendly staff....English not first language. Recommend.

They have an impressive buffet lineup. Most of the different types of items to pick from are fresh and very tasty. The hot and sour soup is incredibly delicious. The egg foo young is probably my second favorite item on the bar. The one minus are the egg rolls. They are tiny and mostly bread.

We were thrilled to pay $10.99 and the buffet included crab legs! We paid dinner price to get the crab legs even though we were there in time for lunch. We then went back another night and brought a friend and did the dinner again. We also paid for the four kids between us, making our bill over $80. When... More

We come here for the Mongolian grill and I come for the sushi. Fresh ingredients really make the grill and sushi great. There is the usual spread of Chinese Buffet food, my favorite being the coconut shrimp at dinner. There is a whole buffet table with American food, as well, so you don't have to love Chinese food to eat... More

Food was Fresh. Service and price were great. I would rather pay a dollar or two more per person and leave satisfied. The only down side we thought of was none of the food had the spice/heat/flavors you expect from dishes such as General Tso... Everything was just sweet. That maybe what some reviews were referring to when they called... More
