“Pretty good buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

When it first opened - very expensive. Now, prices have been lowered and are commensurate with the food .Very good variety, and staff is attentive to keeping it filled. Sometimes takes a while for wait staff to get beverage refills. Food is good, but has more of that "made for mass quantities" taste instead of "home-made." Still, for the money, can't go wrong. With the selection you'll find something you'll like.

“Way too expensive!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

My wife and I drove out to the Kansas Star Casino this past Friday evening to try out The Kitchen Buffet. We thought the $19.95 price they charged on Friday and Saturday night was clear out in left field but we decided to give it a try anyway since there was prime rib on the menu. The prime rib was good but we found the rest of the offerings to be not that great and not much variety; we did like the garlic bread. So probably won't go back unless they drop their prices at least $5...

“Great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Went to the new final location of the Kansas Star casino a couple of weeks back. Being as my wife loves buffets we had to try the Kitchen Buffet. We were not disapointed. Layout is a typical large buffet with all of the food choices lining the outside wall. It also has a full bar (service here is not good) with a good selection of import and craft beers at a reasonable price.

There are many food american and international food choices. We tried the Italian pasta, prime rib, roasted pork shoulder, pot stickers, mac and cheese, potatoes and more. There was not an item we were not happy with. The prime rib was especially good along with the roasted pork. The desert bar was incredible and kind of set up like a french bakery.

Service was excellent (except for sitting at the bar).

Cost is right at $21 a person (no alcohol), which is not bad considering what you would spend at a nice restaurant.

Why a four instead of a five...poor bar service and smokers.
