I went there on a triple date. There was a lot of variety in the food. Had a good time talking and eatting. The tables in the right ride of the restaurant were packed together it was difficult to get out without disturbing the other familys around us. Even though we stacked our plates at the end of... read more

Almost everything is subpar. Would never come back here ever. Dried up food even during prime dining period.

I stopped by twice with the family (wife, mom, and brothers). We were staying at the Comfort suites and dropped by for dinner Thursday. The place was virtually empty. Unfortunately Items sit out longer when there's a lack of customers. Thursday was just slightly above average. However, Sunday was the complete opposite. The place was packed and everything was fresh.... More

Just in front of Comfort Inn Stafford, its an ideal pit stop when arriving. Huge variety of food. Can be overwhelming if its your first time at such establishments. If you go often enough the food does get repetitive. Small plates to reduce waste I guess. It does mean you have to go back more than once to satisfy your... More

The title says it all - this place should be avoided at all costs. I was apprehensive of visiting this "fine" esestablishment after reading several reviews, but thought I'd give it a fair chance. Boy was that a mistake. This place was abysmal: Beef ribs - 90 % bone, 8 % fat, 2 % gristle burnt to a crisp. Rice... More

This is the worst place to eat, the chicken fried steak was hard as a rock, the ribs were cold and would not come off the bone, the salad bar was screaming e-coli, the best thing there was the soft serve ice cream in which is kind of hard to mess that up. Would not recommend this place to anyone,... More

Having moved out of the SW Houston area last September, I now visit Americas Buffet only every 4-6 weeks. In late January I returned to find the restaurant had AGAIN raised their prices. This is the second time within a 12 month span and the third time within two years. Lunch and weekend breakfast now cost in the $11 range... More
