Jade Buffet is an average Chinese Restaurant. It is not as good as what you would get in San Antonio. But if your driving on a road trip it's a quick pit stop. It is currently the better of the two Chinese buffets in Hondo. Try to go during lunch buffet there are more people then. Don't go unless there are at least five other vehicles in the parking lot. I try to follow the cook as they put things out. These are just tips for going to any buffet. If something is missing you can ask the owner and he will put it out for you. There specialty are shrimp dishes. Coconut shrimp is the local favorite. Barbecue chicken is not to good. I say to go for lunch because there are few people that go there for dinner which makes for cold food, but usually for lunch there are enough people that the food stays fresh. This is a good place to go if you have small children. We have a three year old since the restaurant is big and fast it is good if you have small ones. The restaurant does have a view of the train tracks if your interested. My son loves watching them.
