For a Chinese Buffet the food selection is large but nothing special. Food quality is poor. Not worth coming back to Empire Buffet. Plus the place is very dirty.

The food was not hot and the taste was below average. Hot sour soup tasted musty. Some of the items, and there were many choices, were okay. Service was very good for a buffet and the atmosphere was okay. Don't think we'll be back.

We got take-out from this Buffett. Weigh by the pound. Typical of all the CHINESE Buffetts of this size we have visited around the country.

This was typical Chinese buffet. We found a better one about 5 miles away in Lincolnshire, the Mongolian Buffett. This one had a lot to choose from but the Mongolian Buffet - Lincolnshire was even bigger, was next to Regal Theaters, and Barnes Noble, so...More

Nothing out of the ordinary good or bad. Your average Chinese take-out food. O.k. when you're hungry and tired, don't want to travel far for better meal.
