“Gross”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Small buffet, that has an overwhelming smell as soon as you walk in the door, almost musty. They don't even give you real plates, paper plates and plastic silverware! The food was not good. The price is cheap and you get what you pay for. I would recommend paying a little more and going somewhere else.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Absolutely love this place! The food always tastes good and is always hot. The staff is quick to replenish the food and is right there to clean up your plate. Ask for June she is the absolute BEST!!!

“First and last time.”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

While I respect other reviewer's opinions, I cannot rate this establishment as anything other than "poor". Styrofoam plates and plastic eating utensils were not a good start. However, the food was also mediocre; not a good combination. There are other buffets within a five (5) mile radius that are far superior.

“Great Buffet”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

Young Young's is a family run restaurant. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. It offers take out services as well as eat in either from the menu or, as most people do, from the buffet. The food is very tasty. Better than your average Chinese buffet. The buffet table, which is very clean, is continuously being refilled. There is never stuff left sitting out for long periods of time. They make just what is needed to turn over. There is a large assortment of the most popular items such as General Tso's chicken, Chicken and broccoli, etc. There are several soups, rice choices and dessert options like soft serve as well. In addition on Friday (only) they serve my favorite; Dim Sum.

This is a very popular lunch and dinner spot. It is equally popular for business people lunching, teens, senior. It's also very popular with families with young children.

The price is well below what some other buffets charge and the food is a much higher quality.
