Everything is cooked in or with peanut oil so if your allergic- Stay away!!! Don't even go into the gift shop- it's all contaminated with peanut oil and peanut dust. Peanut grease lingers everywhere around that place.

The food was somewhat greasy and nothing except the banana pudding was done right. Very disappointed with the fried chicken, it was tough and cold and very crispy. Was very disappointed with the entire buffet.
