“Keep driving and don't stop!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

Food was not fresh, chicken on a stick was almost petrified it was so old and dry.
Fortune cookie was as hard as a hockey puck. Like to see where it was made, made in Atlanta Georgia. Lol
Don't eat here, this place is terrible.

“I will eat there again.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Coming home, had always seen this restraunt. Thought would stop & have chinese buffet. Staff was very friendly, welcoming me upon entering. Happened to be big football game day so they were slow. Very nice surprise to be able to watch game on tv. Originally seated @ 1 table, asked if i could move closer to tv. They were accomodating. Had just changed from lunch to dinner so had to pay difference in price. Tried to select what was freshest so took several trips but tried it all. By choosing only fresh looking prepared items, tasted good. It is an older building but seemed fairly clean. Overall probably had 8 to 10 tables total while I was there. Helpful being next to motel & on busy interstate. But not helpful visiting rhem on big game day. I will return to chinese buffet again. Next time, I think will try somerhinf from menu. Overall food experience was good. Overall customer satisfaction , I would rate excellent.

“Best in the area (not saying much)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

China Buffet has good food that they keep fresh. Great prices and includes a few other items besides chinese (pizza, fish, salad, etc.). Over the last few years since we have been going the cleanliness score has been dropping a little bit. I believe last time we were in there it was a 94. But this is about the only place to get decent chinese within 40 or so miles. So it's worth it.

“A roll of the dice.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

I have always received great service, but the quality of the food is a gamble. Sometimes the food is very fresh, sometimes the food has been on the buffet too long. I would not go out of my way to eat there. If you are passing by, maybe you will find the food fresh. Good luck!
