“Traveling with kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

This place used to be the Ranchero. Somehow, they must still be connected, or have the same cooks, because they still have the wonderful strawberry cobbler. However, the service is very different. With very few tables seated, we had to ask pass-by waitresses for our needs...more water, condiments, etc. When we were ready to leave, no one brought our tab. So, we went to the cashier, and she asked about the waitress bringing it,,,so we waited and one showed up that we had never seen.....she told the cashier that she was ours and handed her our check. With all of that said, the food is good for a roadside buffet: chicken and dumplings, fried chicken, freshly baked rolls, good salad choices, and if you are in the mood......Mexican dishes. None of the vegetables tasted like they were from a can. We will go back, but will insist on our own personal waitress when we are seated.

“motorcyle bar”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

found the food to be subpar and just not a place for familes, just didn't care for it at all. Went to watch a football game and just didn't find the food or the visit worthwhile. Wouldn't go back.

“buffet”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

lots of food, cheap buffet, if the food is fresh it's ok but we don't a lot so it's kind of a waste. If you're a big eater this is good choice, lots of variety.

“Good buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Have eaten here 4 times now and had no problems. We have come during the day and eaten the buffet, not from the menu. There was plenty of variety on the buffet. I found it had more selections in the meats than a lot of buffets the same size. The Mexican selections were only so-so...but they do sit out in a heating try so there isnt much you can do. I have tried the pieces of grilled steak and gone back for seconds. LIked the roast beef and catfish also. Several vegetables that were good - especially liked the carrots. I have never had issues with service either - always had my tea refilled without having to ask. And dont recall any problems in the bathrooms during my visits. I would definately recommend the place to anyone for lunch. Havent been for dinner so I dont have any information on that.
