Loved the food. Everything was cooked to perfection! So many pies to choose from. It is very easy to over eat. Check the plate to make sure it is clean, as the dishwasher seems to be inefficient. Very busy.

It is an American food buffet. Tons of kids running around. It reminded me of ants at a picnic everyone jumping from place to place no order. Most of the food bins had a few items left, some empty and the unpopular full. It was 13 a person plus tax. I doubt if I would go back.

Our group of 8 found several table options upon Saturday, 11:30 arrival. Apparently, for a few minutes, we had a couple remaining choices from the breakfast buffet. Bacon! Lots of other luncheon meat options. Standard salad bar, but I wanted more fresh veggies, lightly cooked veggies and fresh fruit. Mashed potatoes appeared a bit sloppy. Home fries with onions looked... More

I really don't know why people like this place. It used to be good before it turned into a buffet. The food tastes processed. The place is extremely cramped. They have like 1 waitress taking care of half the place so it's close to impossible to get a refill on your drink. If you go with a party of six... More

Many people don't seem to like Furr's, but I found that if you choose foods you usually like but don't get on an average day then Furr's is a good place to eat. Try something new foods and savor old favorites. Just don't eat too much.

We particularly like the Sunday Buffet. The man making the individually ordered omelets is outstanding! You select the ingredients & he puts them together. If biscuits with sausage gravy is your choice, their gravy is pretty tasteless but the biscuits are hot & flaky. The rest of the available selections are good with the desert table abundantly filled!
