“Food may be average, but you can't beat the location, selection and ease of getting in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Here's the thing: the food is just ok. The meat is a bit overdone and there's nothing all that special about it (with the exception of REAL Belgian waffles for breakfast, cakelike and drool-worthy). But you can rely on this place to have lots of kid-friendly fare, like pizza, hamburgers, spaghetti, fried chicken, ham, roast beef, mac and cheese, fries, fruit, carrot sticks, etc. So even picky kids can eat their fill. It's fast and if you're coming out of the park for a quick meal, there's no place better. In, eat lots, out. The kids asked for it all three nights because they like the food and we never had to wait. It's a good price for dinner out there, too. So this remains our favorite dinner spot for Disneyland trips.

“If you are staying close to Disneyland and looking to get a big grub on, this is the place...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Bit small and cramped seating and nothing special, but its proximity and price make this an easy stop on the way to or from the Disneyland parks. If you stay at the Best Western Park Place next door you eat upstairs for breakfast... Quick, easy, and good. Leave the parks around two for an hour and eat for their lunch price and Enjoy Hometown Buffet like food for a decent price. Again the food and cleanliness are nothing special, but you won't be wishing that the health department was on speed dial either, it serves the purpose of providing lots of decent food to eat for a price you will appreciate.

“Gross & Nasty!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

The food was nasty! Plus, as we are trying to find something edible we noticed that the guy working behind the buffet was wearing plastic gloves and grabbed a nasty dirty rag and wiped down the counter, then (wearing the same gloves) grabbed food trays, switched out food on the buffet, and was scooping fries into a bin on the buffet! We suddenly last our appetitie. We brought it to the manager's attention and he first offered us a gift certificate. Hello, we're from Nebraska and don't ever plan on returning there. So, he then refunded our money. NASTY!

“grossssssss”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Nasty food and bad service. Gross is a nice way to describe it. Go elsewhere. If you like really old buffet style bad food then this is your place!

“This is the worst place I have ever eaten in.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We got to eat here free from the hotel next door. We got value for money.

What is served at the breakfast buffet upstairs, is bland looking and unappealing. There are paper plates and plastic knives and forks. The table tops were not wiped down, and in the two visits we made, we never saw anyone serving or cleaning up.

While it is difficult to criticize the restaurant for the standard of dress of the patrons, why were there people still in their pajamas? You have been warned.

McDonalds just up the street is a better option.
