We had a wonderful dinner here and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Great value and good value. Feels like a real family place.

We stopped here for dinner and were surprised to find a buffet option. The selection and quality was very good for a very reasonable price.

The buffet has many selections. Food was very good. The staff was very efficient--plates cleared right away. Prices very reasonable--only $11 for the buffet. My only complaint was they didn't label all the items. A nice place to eat if you are visiting the sand...More

We have been to Calvillos twice. The first time was one year ago on a Friday night (lots of fun with live music from the mariachi band) and just about a week ago. The food is wonderful and the service is fantastic. If you like...More

Not sure I can add much, but my understanding is the buffet is an all-day feature so it should be good for lunch. I think the other reviewers have provided an pretty good estimate of the price.

Yes, they have a very good buffet or you can order off the menu. I have done both. The buffet is very good and quite extensive. If I remember correctly it is about $13-14.00. They had live music the second time we were... More
