I went there on a triple date. There was a lot of variety in the food. Had a good time talking and eatting. The tables in the right ride of the restaurant were packed together it was difficult to get out without disturbing the other familys around us. Even though we stacked our plates at the end of... read more

The title says it all - this place should be avoided at all costs. I was apprehensive of visiting this "fine" esestablishment after reading several reviews, but thought I'd give it a fair chance. Boy was that a mistake. This place was abysmal: Beef ribs - 90 % bone, 8 % fat, 2 % gristle burnt to a crisp. Rice... More

This is the worst place to eat, the chicken fried steak was hard as a rock, the ribs were cold and would not come off the bone, the salad bar was screaming e-coli, the best thing there was the soft serve ice cream in which is kind of hard to mess that up. Would not recommend this place to anyone,... More

Having moved out of the SW Houston area last September, I now visit Americas Buffet only every 4-6 weeks. In late January I returned to find the restaurant had AGAIN raised their prices. This is the second time within a 12 month span and the third time within two years. Lunch and weekend breakfast now cost in the $11 range... More

Familiarity, as they say, breeds. Eating at a certain restaurant for 13 years you come to see, to borrow another phrase, the good, the bad and the ugly. On occasions, you even see the underbelly. My opinion of the food hasn't changed in the last few years.. It's still a steal but with another price increase in Aug 2014, it's... More

Not going back to this place again. They had very small portion of every item they had, then on top of that the food was cold. Every thing that I ate was either barely warm. Food was not really good either.

I've been to this place so many times. Have the best food that you can imagine. I love this place. From the crawfish to the hot wings and they also have a great pizza.

This restaurant was beside the hotel we were staying at. Glad it was. We enjoyed. Large variety of food. Chinese, American, southern... We were very impressed with wait staff. We asked for milk, which seems not to be readily available, and she went into the kitchen twice to bring us what we wanted. Recommended
