“Overpriced for the quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

My wife and I went here, expecting much better food quality. We have been to the USA Buffet in Kearney in the past, and the quality was far superior in the Kearney location. The steaks were never ready and when they were, they tasted terrible. The items on the buffet were fine, if you could break through the outer crust that had formed as a result of sitting under a heat lamp too long. The only palatable item was the battered shrimp. However, it is very difficult to poorly prepare deep fried food. So, unless you want to overpay for nothing more than deep fried shrimp and soda, I would seriously consider a different venue.

“Fresh Steaks hot off the grill!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013 via mobile

All the steaks you can eat cook fresh when requested. Huge varieties of food and plenty of desserts to go with the meals. Great for familys and large groups.

“Dirty and Low Quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Went in for lunch for a change of pace and wish I did not. The first steak I had I could hardly cut through with my steak knife. Overall the environment of the restaurant was musty and the tables and booths were dirty. The guy grilling steaks had no personality and did not smile. Waitress looked like she just woke up and was not professional. I will not be back, don't enjoy eating low quality steaks and sides.

“Will Never Go Back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

The restaurant was dirty. The tables were sticky. The salad bar was awful. The lettuce was brown. The food under the heat lamps was rubbery as if it had been there all day. We tried three different steaks, they were all like shoe leather and could not be chewed. There were no desserts. We will never go back to this establishment.

“Good and Bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This place is way over priced for the low quality. Servers put new food on top of the old food. Allot of heat lamp items do get old and chewy. If you are smart enough to tell the difference between old food and new food there are things to eat that aren't gross. The best items are on the desert bar and in the cold salad bar.
