Review of China Buffet

Wife and I wanted something quick and simple to be delivered after arriving home after a long plane flight. Called China Buffet, and was told that they don't deliver. Have experienced this before, sometimes they deliver, sometimes they don't.
Okay, then we were going to place an order to be picked up. That didn't work out either, they were out of pork fried rice! What? That's a staple of Chinese restaurants, and they never should never run out. Probably ran out of it on the buffet line and didn't want to cook a fresh order to go.
Final straw, ordered from a competitor.

I'm not a big fan of Chinese food, but I do enjoy a meal at China Buffet.

They have a good selection of foods and everything is clean and neat. Service is above average. There is never a dirty plate left at the table and beverages are refilled quickly.

Ice cream machine has been replaced with hard scoop, which seems less sanitary. I skip the ice cream in favor of the apple strudel. Yes, quite a surprise at a Chinese restaurant, but wonderful.

Parking is available in a back lot if you can't find a space on the street. Worth checking it out!

The service and food are impeccable. I have lived all over the world and have enjoyed cuisines of various Asian countries, so believe me when I say this Chinese buffet could hold its own in the largest cities with its quality of food and service. If you're ever in Hibbing, MN drop by for lunch or dinner, you won't be disappointed. The owners are very nice, generous, and gracious.

.... and this is probably a good thing. Same thing every time we've gone (approx 25 times in last 4 years) the only variable is whether or not the ice cream machine will be working

extremely fast moving/efficient staff, pop refills quicker than you can blink

never any rotating menu items, like other buffets do

Had delivery. Order came quickly, but driver had no cash to make change.
Egg rolls OK, lacking taste. Egg FooYoung had odd bitter taste. Threw it out. Mongolian beef average, mostly relying on onions for favoring.
Won't be ordering again anytime soon
