My 88 year old father loves this place. Me? Not so much. It serves typical buffet style food, run of the mill quality. The staff seems to keep the buffet items and areas clean, well stocked and the high volume of customers keeps the turn around time adequate for the dishes' viability. The buffet items don't typically sit around getting... More

This is a little more expensive than Sizzler but has a wider variety of options. We eat out several times per month and typically plan to make Chuck-a-Rama one of our stops.

Went there yesterday, the food was cold, the mashed potatoes tasted like the pan, the gravy was runny and the chicken was disgusting. We usually go to the one in Provo but we were starving and wanted to go to the mall so this one was closer! Never again will we eat here. My daughter and I were still hungry... More

So, this actually turned out better than I was expecting. The prime rib and steak probably made it worthwhile. The desserts are more like on a cruise ship. not delicious, but very pretty. I like the chicken and ribs. If you want to eat 'normal' portions, then I feel like this is a bit expensive. If you are able to... More

We went here because golden corral had a long line out the door and around the building. We were hungry and chose to go here. The line wasn't to bad, we had a short 5 min wait for a table, the food was stocked and hot. Disappointed with our waitress though and they no longer keep chocolate milk accessible to... More

I love Chuck-R-Rama. There are many locations in Utah. Food is always very tasty and appetizing. This is a great place for families to eat. The staff is friendly and not frazzled by the kids at the buffet tables.

My family calls Chuck-A-Rama "Barf-a-Rama" because there is just too much good food to eat. Many all-you-can eat places have low-quality food and crapy deserts. Not so with Chuck-a-Rama. Dinner rolls and sticky buns are to die for and their salad bar is one of the best in the city. If you are taking your family, cousins, and grandparents out... More

We like this serve-yourself style since you can start eating immediately, and can sample many different selections. It seems most people who eat here have some favorites, and go for those first. The food always has that "home-made" goodness. Visit their web site to view daily menus when they're specializing in certain foods, in addition to their normal variety. Lunch... More

As far as all you can eat buffets go, Chuck-a-Rama is at the higher end of the spectrum. But that being said, it is a buffet. Which means you are going for the amount of food or wide selection, not because everything is amazing. Everything is just decent.

Nothing to rave about! service is ok, and food is ok. You can get a lot for your money... easy to take big groups of people too, since there are many choices to suit peoples needs.
