Saturday was steak night and only $10.99. The waiter took your steak order and it was cooked to order and served with a baked potato. He offered to bring more after the first was done.. Salad bar and desert bars were small but still sufficient.

In general it was an average buffet (this was "asian" night). It did have friendly and competant staff, and a few outstanding buffet items. I don't know who "invented" that red-velvet-cheesecake-layered-with-chocolate-cake, but I'd like to give them a hug. A manly hug, of not more than a couple seconds, but a hug. After a long day of driving, that piece of cake was quite a nice topper.

The rest of the "asian" dishes I tried were "OK". Not bad, but uninspired re-treads of common "Chinese Food" dishes found everywhere. Competantly prepared, but neither exciting, nor outstanding. Never had to ask for my lemonade to be refilled though as it was kept coming by the friendly waitress.

some food was good but alot was dry like the chicken tasted old. The meat loaf was the best tasting but I can eat that at home. I was hoping for something different.

We're new to Reno so we're checking out all the buffets. We found a coupon for BOGO. Total eleven dollars and change for two - less than McDonny's. It's not a $30 buffet - canned fruit, only one type of meat on the carving table. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. It's a small attractive dining room and a small buffet, with meatloaf, pulled pork which I had on hot rolls (mmmy favorite), fried chicken (partner went back for more), prime rib (partner went back for more), fish and several vegetables plus much more. I ate everything on my plate. There are fancy little desserts including white chocolate covered strawberries and soft serve ice-cream. Overall I was very impressed by what you get for the price. Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday are prime rib night, Saturday is steak, Monday is Asian, Wednesday is Italian and Friday is seafood. Sunday - Thursday $8.99; Friday and Saturday $10.99. Save $1 by signing up for a player's card.
