Husband and I went here for breakfast. Quality has gone down. Ham looked like it was warmed over, bacon dried and chewy, steaks gray in color. Waitress service attentive and pleasant but do yourself a favor and eat elsewhere. Yuck...

At Cactus Willies you get what you might expect. Unlimited quantities of mostly industrial type food. Nothing stands out as bad but nothin is exceptionally good either. They do have a cooked to order steak grill which puts them above most buffet style establishments.

This is a very good basic American food buffet. The buffet area is well taken care of by the staff. The value is always excellent since we always use a coupon. The steak quality is very good. Don't miss the bread pudding.

We checked out this place only because we had a coupon and in a word "disappointment".
The food was only warm, the salad was not fresh & crunchy, the vegetables seemed out of a can, the deserts looked stale & tired, the vanilla ice cream had no taste whatsoever. The only item that had a chance was the steak- it was prepared ok but only served warm. The selections were many but the food quality was lame. Don't bother.

Cactus Willies is one of the few good buffets in Lancaster County PA. Monday through Friday until 3pm they serve Lunch, then the prices rise from $7.99 to $10.59. At $7.99 it is a bargain with a very large selection of good food. We are bargain hunters, and eat very little meat, so we try to eat there during the week before 3pm if we are able to. They serve breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. They has a large salad bar, lots of vegetables, lots of fish, meats, and poultry, and of course pecan pie and other deserts.
