Not Bad for Americanized Chinese food

I was lucky this place was open on New Year's Day the day after a big storm. The food was actually quite good... the chicken skewers were tasty, the crab puffs were tasty and the shrimp was tasty. There was also an ice cream bar and cookies.... I've seen buffets with better selection but it was... read more

When you consider the size of Ft. Stockton, this place was pretty amazing. The buffet was limited by big town standards, but what they had was generally quite good. The only item I could criticize was the broccoli. It was way overdone.

Unplanned overnight stop in Ft Stockton - icy roads forced us off I-10. This place was next door to our hotel. We entered at 9:20pm to a clean & fresh looking buffet. Two of us ate off it and were pleased with the variety and selection. Wonton Soup and egg rolls off the menu were great. No atmosphere but nice... More

We have never had bad service or poor food in this restaurant. Find it full of families, travelers and oilfield workers, so they are doing something right. The $12 dinner buffet provides and inexpensive fill-up. We have never experienced "monitoring" of how much we take on our plate. There is a sign at the entrance that states an upcharge will... More

The overpriced $12 lunch buffet offers really poor quality of food, with poor choice. The best dishes (shrimps..) go away really fast and obviously they don't replace them early. The worst part is the service though: the waitresses are very aggressive and look after what you take (they charge you more if you take "too much"). One of them even... More

This place had terrible food. The beef broccoli was foul tasting, as if the beef has rotted! Poor selection, so when one thing was not good we had a hard time finding something we felt was edible. Had to take kids to local fast food place to feed them.

This food is the worst chinese food I have ever had. Most of the food were cold. The egg drop soup tasted like dishwasher liquid has been in. I dont recommend anyone eating here. I am a native chinese person and this food is disguisting.

The food is decent and it's fresh. Probably the best place to eat in the area. Some of the food seemed a little salty but otherwise good eats

The food is average to a little above average, and there is plenty of it. Surprisingly good for someplace in the middle of nowhere in TX. And they keep it fresh and keep it coming on their bar.

The food is good. For a small buffet it has several good choices. Service is always good. The management is really friendly.
