“Quite mediocre”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

There is a good selection but this is almost the only positive. Most of the food is not that good. They ran out of sprinkles for the ice cream. The icee wasn't icy at all. They told us we had until 2115 to eat but started packing everything up around 2050. The ribs were too firm, biscuits too firm, pizza was tasteless. Most of the food didn't taste that good. The salad selection was nice. I won't be coming back here again.

“My standard 'Eat All You...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2008

My standard 'Eat All You Can' place that is cheap and plentiful, from salads and make your own tacos to peach cobbler for dessert. A great place to people-watch!

“Simple Buffet Fare for Families or Folks with Varied Tastes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2006

This is a simple restaurant with a buffet with a variety of entree choices, a salad bar as well as vegetable and bread choices. We routinely go out on Sunday nights with our 6 and 10 year olds boys, and are sometimes challenged to find a spot that has food that suits us all. My six-year old was the least excited (the pizza tasted different...) but my ten-year old ate ham, turkey, corn and cornbread, probably getting a better meal than the typical kid food at a chain restaurant. The buffet included both plain fare (ham, turkey) as well as casserole items, popcorn shrimp,etc. I think that the menu changes from night to night.
