At the core, we do business with people. The couple running this restaurant are wonderful. They stayed open during a snow storm and quite a few 'travelers' took advantage. We kinda had to - the 'strip' in Lancaster had a bunch of early closings. I...More

Ate there mid May. Mid range selection but they cook some of their dishes for you on a tap pan so you know it is fresh. Older restaurant but clean and comfortable. Cost for dinner was $10.50.

My husband and I came to this Buffet because it was walking distance from my hotel. Many selections including American cuisines and everything hot and fresh. Staff was polite and fast with cleaning the table. It's nothing fancy , but great Chinese food.
