The 3 best things about Al Macs Buffet is ample free parking, no waiting to be seated and no one ended up in the hospital.
The sign outside said that breakfast was $6.99 but that does not include drinks. You can’t have tap water because they don’t have water but you can order bottle for $3. Final price is $12.00 per person whether you are young or old. Coffee is $3 and a glass of milk is $4 (the price of 4 litres or 1 gallon at a store). There are no signs or menus to tell you the price of the drinks. You just get surprised at the end of the meal, when they bring you the bill.
It was a scene from Kitchen Nightmares. The selection was far from sufficient for a buffet. There were about 5 of 6 covered trays. The good thing about the food was that it was covered with a big metal cover so you can’t see how bad the food was. You had to remove each cover to reveal what was under the cover. There was two choices for pan cakes, stale old ones that have been sitting for hours and fresh ones with the centre still doughy and uncooked. The French toast on the other hand, was only one choice, stale and old so you needed syrup to try to soften it up so you can cut it and try to chew on it. Bacon was also interested. It was a chewy hard ball of grease. You needed to separate the pieces by hand in order to see the strips. As for the fresh fruit (“items may vary by season” as quoted in their web page), was a large bowl of canned fruit cocktail. “Eggs Your Way (over easy, over hard, boiled, scrambled)” was scrambled. “Country Home Fries” was frozen potato nuggets fried up. “Fresh Baked Muffins” and “Home Made Cakes” must have been the store bought blue berry muffins with no blue berries but blue colouring to look like blue berries. At other fine restaurants like McDonalds, they would have thrown out the food if it’s been sitting for hours. This place must have picked it back up to serve in their buffet.
