“Dirty”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

I have relatives that call it "The Hog Trough, and I agree. Inevitably, I have to set aside a plate or more because they are dirty, often times flatware is dirty. That can make a person extremely sick. Our Health Dept. doesn't seem to visit restaurants in Galesburg or there would be changes, I have seen nasty things go on here. Once a customer put spaghetti noodles on his plate and part went off the side of the plate so he took his hands and pulled it off and put it back in the pan. Another time, a lady held a boy up while he shoved his hands down into all the candy pans of ice cream toppings, I have seen women leave restrooms and not wash their hands and then touch spoon handles, etc. I order off the grill & watch what I can. The restaurant should have an employee watch the buffet stations to try and keep customers safe.

“All you can eat buffet-okay food, great price.”
Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Stopped in here on a long car trip. Wasn't sure what it would be like. It was a slightly better version of a Ponderosa Steak House. Food was okay, nothing great. It was cheap. Alone that's not a good reason to eat there, but the food wasn't terrible, so it made it worthwhile. Their salad bar had the standard iceberg lettuce mix, however they also had spinach and romaine there, too. They had a taco bar as well this evening. Their steaks were a little chewy and not super tasty, but what do you expect for around eleven dollars.

“Mostly good food.”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

Excellent salad bar, delicious fresh made cinnamon rolls. Delicious baked sweet potatoes. This place has some really good food. Sometimes I don't care for the meat, but their baked chicken is always very good. Vegetables are very good. Meat and desserts aren't the best sometimes.
