It's a good chain. They need to change up the menu sometimes. Great fried chicken. Good soups. Salads bar is fresh and well tended.

We have been here several times, usually for early dinner or late lunch. We use one of the coupons from their ad and that makes the meal cheaper by 25%.

My wife and I visited on this occassion because we had a coupon and we were not disappointed although the place could have been cleaner. The food was above average but, lacking in some choices such as a wider variety in vegetables. The food that was there tasted great and will definitely return when we can. Thanks

We eat here couple times for lunch in the last 6 months. The Buffet is average to good quality with many choices including soup, salad, steak, chicken, ribs and fruits not to mention ice cream for a reasonable price around $8. Will do it gain with friends once in a while...

You cant beat Breakfast Buffet at this price. A lot of selection. It gets a little crowded at times but the food pays for it
