“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

I was surprised that they had a buffet. Very good, they worked hard and fast to keep everything filled and fresh. Highly recommend!

“Yuck!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

I had read the reviews and wasn't surprised by the exterior, but when we walked in the front door, we almost tripped on a 5 gallon pail sitting there to collect water from a ceiling leak. We waited to be seated by a waitress who did not want to be there. Although there were plenty of tables she seated us at a table that was shoved so close to another table that we couldn't get into the chairs. We asked for another table and she preceeded to yank the table out which gave room on one side, but it put the table in the path to the buffet. We sat down for a minute and the place was so scruffy looking that we decided to eat elsewhere.

“Filthy Place! Does No Justice to Valentinos...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Very dirty place, poor service, over priced. No menus offered and tables were not wiped. Had to ask for everything we needed. Very poor quality and run down building. Looked like a Bingo Hall with no music. The front door area is cramped and you cannot even pay to get out fast enough without bumping shoulders with someone. Seriously folks...this place is a dive...The pizza was good thought. Order a pizza to go is the way to go here.

“Keep driving.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

While passing through, we stopped here for a quick lunch. The appearance of the building had me nervous. Walk in, and we immediately saw a bucket catching water from water dripping from the ceiling. The place is NOT set up well. The buffet is small, compared to other Valentino's buffets. My 12 year old even noticed the lettuce was not fresh, and slightly slimy. The pizza was hot and seemed fresh. The brownies next to the ice cream machine must've been from last week...gross! The place was busy, from the after church crowd. Tables are very close together. Be prepared to be bumped into many times. Drinks were not refilled until we asked another server for refills. The building definitely needs to be updated and changes need to be made to make it more inviting. My family will not be back to this location.

“Fun Trough as Always”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Made it to Valentino's on the Lake Mac trip.

What is there to say? The buffet (AKA "Trough") is always full of good, not great, satisfying carb-heavy goodies. Decent pepperoni pizza, bread sticks, pasta, salad and dessert pizzas. Yum!

Only problem is that every time I come here, it seems as though a teenage girls' swim team always shows up and devastates the trough like a swarm of locusts. Those girls are thin but boy, can they put it away!

Food may not be fantastic but the nostalgia is.
