First, I like buffets and I like salad. Heck, I am amazed with Ceci's. So, I am not exactly a food snob.
This place will not meet expectations. Their web site leaves the impression it is a high end veg/salad/soup buffet with good pasta. NO WAY. Falls FAR short of the $10.50 plus $2.30 drink fee. If it was $5.50 I'd say it was a good value.
The salad bar is a basic as it gets. Just standard green fare. The most exotic it gets is peas. No whole olives, artichokes, tuna, no cheese, no sliced eggs, etc, etc. Just greens, carrot, pease, an few other standards. Again, it's a good $5 salad bar. Pizza hut salad bar or Wendy's is a bit better. Not as long mind you, but better. Don't let the length fool you, it is a whole length of dissapoinment. A trail of tears, so to speak.
The pasta "bar". Has ANYONE ever seen mac & cheese in a pasta bar? I mean in the place where they "make it fresh" in a fry pan? Baked in a warming tray - yes. But in a pasta bar???
Plus, this mac & cheese was awful. I am not kidding; Kraft is better. If I give you a spoon of their "cheese" - blindfolded - and the word cheese comes out of your mouth I will GIVE you $100. I saw them "make" it. They took macaroni from a pot - not from boiling water, mind you, from a pot. Then they ladled this yellow goo on it. Done. The other two "bar" offerings? One was empty with a "we'll make it for you" sign. Great - one guy came by once and made more mac & cheese. The other pasta was cold. BTW, my 14 year old daugter did not finish her Mac & cheese. Now you don't know my daughter, but this is very damning evidence nonetheless.
They had "chicken teriyake salad". I stood there with the thongs and assumed the chicken must be at the bottom. No. There was literally ZERO chicken. Zero. You needed a Parts Per Million system to detect any. Maybe even PPB. The bread was the small muffins you see at Sam's club. The soup. If you like Progresso - ---go buy some! 'Cause this is not as good. I mean it.
There's more, but you get the picture. No wait, the fruit area had ONE fruit. Some sliced cantelope. I am not making this up. The rest was jello and a bowl of tapioca (Tapioca is made from the root of the casawba plant, so no, you can't count it as fruit.)
I wager the the only repeat male customers are henpecked husbands and guys with serious heart problems.
