“Okay, but can be expensive....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

We use to eat here a lot. But the prices have gradually increased. The place does have a lot of kids and it can be messy from time to time. But overall, there are many selections to choose from. We have never had much of a problem with quality of food or anything. Earlier in the day is cheaper. Seniors can eat cheaper from 1pm to 3:30pm. We sometimes like to go around 10:30 and order water. Juice is available from breakfast. Those that want breakfast can have that and those that want lunch can wait till 11am. There can be a taboo from buffets. Germs and cattle grazing the buffet line. I have no real objections as long as I can find something I like. I would think anybody could. It is just slowly pricing itself out from eating there on a consistent basis.

“It's a buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2011 via mobile

Recently remodeled, food is decent and plentiful. Family atmosphere (in other words, always tons of kids running around). Food is better on some days than others. Its not fancy but it's a good value and much nicer than the one in Lexington.

“Dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2008

Restaurant dirty. Skim over salad dressings, tartar sauce. Foul odor around salad bar. Reported; staff did nothing. Furniture in dining room covered with grime. Several of us got stomach aches. We survived; never again!
