“cheap eats and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

i read the reviews, and if u r like me, i read the worst first and then the rest to decide. for the cost, i thought i'd give it a try. there were four of us, and the place is huge. so that is good to know as u would never think that from the outside. the waitresses were friendly and unlike other places, i wasn't pressured for drinks or to order from the menu (which was probably fresher but for the cost, and reviews, we decided to go with the buffet). they brought a jug of water which was great since a lot of places never refill drinks. the food was hot, and there were a lot of choices. there weren't a lot of vegetarian dishes - i think there were like three out of all the choices - but i guess people come here for the wings and eggrolls. they were delishious. i think i had like 3 plates of just those two things. for the cost, $8.95, i honestly don't know what people are complaining about. that is just a mcdee's combo meal so for what u get, i don't know what people are thinking. i will be coming back.

“Run of the mill...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

We ate here last night. The food or the Buffehr had a big selection. For the most part it was your average all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet. There were chicken wings, chicken balls, broccoli and other fresh veggies.

The serving staff were good, always making sure the plates were cleared when we returned from the buffet.

I never go to Chinese all-you-can-eat buffets, but while I won't return I would recommend it.

“Jack Lee`s Tavern & Restaurant needs better buffet”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

We decided to try Jack Lee`s on mother`s day and we were not impressed with the limited buffet menu that we found. I did not find many vegetarian dishes at all and the desserts were very limited. The atmosphere was ok and the staff were responsive but you can`t eat either of these. At this point I will not rush back.
