“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Chinese buffet! Nice variety and the surprise for me were the fresh serrano/habenero peppers that are served with the Salt and Pepper shrimp and one other dish. Reasonably priced and good selection.

“Slim Pickens in Fort Stockton”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

A typical, out-in the-middle-of-nowhere Chinese buffet. One of the only eateries open past nine pm and one of your only choices unless you want Mexican food. Edible and that's about it. One of the highlights was the ice cream buffet. Real ice cream! The other highlight was our super friendly, cute server, Nick. Despite the poor crowd and even poorer tips, he still had a smile on his face At 10 o'clock. Thanks, Nick! ;)

“Quick lunch stop off I10 enroute to San Antonio 1/2/2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

long days drive from El Paso to San Antonio, stopped for lunch, it was a good stop! Trip Advisor had recommended and it was well worth it. Very reasonable chinese buffet is $7.80 on week days and $9.80 on weekends, in Fort stockton the only thing like this in town.

Everything looked really good and everything I had was good. the hot n sour soup was the highlight of my meal, along with the pistachio ice cream and coconut macaroons.

The buffet is good, food is fresh, varied and many selections: salad, peel and eat shrimp, 2 soups egg drop and hot and sour, egg roll, asian appetizers fruit, about 8-12 selections to chose from, chicken, beef, pork dishes, barbq on stick, many stir fried dishes, at least 7 or 8 cookies and cakes including moist coconut macaroons, and to top it all off, 8- 5 gallon containers of Blue Bell ice cream in the ice cream case, freezer including choc, vanilla, various fruit sherbets and fruit ice creams plus pistachio almond! Wow! This is all self serve.

The place was full, ladies, families, foreigners, workmen and area locals, folks know the value and frequent the buffet. Not a lover of buffets except for Indian food, I don't have a lot of experience however it filled it purpose and we moved on down the road.

Best wishes and enjoy! 2/2/2013
