Always made to feel welcome. Food is hot (temperature) and a wide variety is available on the buffet. We stop in at least once a month when we pass through town.

Great Chinese food, american style! Good variety of food, great price. Best green beans ever had. Peanut chicken also a favorite. Doesn't look like much from the outside. Inside is yum. Take out is good also. A repeat customer. .

Very good food. At the middle of the afternoon we found the food fresh and hot. The coffee was not up to standards, but we should know to order tea with Chinese food.

We ignored the warning signs of no cars in the car park and no customers in the restaurant and went in anyway. This was at 6pm and the staff seemed surprised to see anyone. The food was half gone and appeared to be left over...More

We were in Socorro during mid afternoon, so did not expect a buffet to have fresh food available due to the time of day. For a very reasonable price, we enjoyed this buffet, and were glad we stopped in. There was a good selection of...More
