Lucky Buffet has a nice assortment of foods, along with a chief who can stir fry your request. There is plenty of American food, ham, chicken, fish, and lots of veggies! Lots of appetitzees, along with a great selection of desserts! Very reasonably priced!!

The food is the same everytime you go. Somethings are ok some others are not very good, just kinda slopped on the buffet. I have given up after the last time, the cashier can be rude if you catch her on a bad day. The rest of the service is good, plates cleared, glasses filled, but the food? Cheap but... More

Classic "all you can eat" Chinese buffet. Unless you snag a dish when first transferred from wok to steam table - it all tastes the same... Sure there's shrimp - if you like brine shrimps less than an inch long. If you like chocolate pudding - that's an option. The place is identical with China Wok. All you can eat... More

The food is a typical oriental buffet , it is flavorful, not terribly fresh but the neat thing is the Grill. You can choose your protein (fish, beef, chicken, pork or tofu) then add fresh vegetables and they will cook it for you. All for the price of the buffet. It is a good deal and nice family atmosphere.

Good food, its a little greasy but great value considering all the food you get. I like to go after a workout where im so hungry I eat 3 plates of food. The lunch hours end early around 2pm so you want to get there early because after 2pm the prices almost double for essentially the same food. Also the... More

We enjoy popping in to The Lucky Buffet to breeze through the buffet for take out (we live nearby and have a great couch, or we'd be perfectly happy dining in). Nice variety, has always been fresh and stocked, General Taos, Pineapple chicken, and boneless spareribs among my favorites. Price for takeout very fair.

OK, I'll start by saying the price for dinner was fair in relation to the quantity and quality of the food. But the glowing reviews must be from people who don't eat at a lot of Chinese buffets--this one is decent but not 'the best I've ever found in my life' as some imply. For starters, as a traveler, I... More

Every time I go I have the same experience, great food that is replenished on a very regular basis, friendly, attentive staff and lunch with a drink for under $10.

There are a few Chinese/Oriental restaurants in town and they are all pretty good in my opinion. This place has a very large luncheon buffet and attracts a lot of customers. The staff does a great job getting the customers fed and keeping the buffet fresh.
