We eat buffet breakfast here almost every time we are in Mcallen. Food is good, not fancy and it is always fresh and there is plenty of it. Prices are CHEEEEEEP!

Food is, well less than average for an All you Can Eat Buffet in the area. If you are looking for a buffet I recommend going to the Golden Corral. In my opinion, they have a much greater selection and much better food quality.

At the time we were going for the Friday seafood. Not the biggest selection in the world but not bad. Hope it's still there and doing well.

Food is always overcooked and overwarmed. Too many other places to have a meal.

We will not be going back to this Shoney's nor recommending it to anyone else. We were seated near the buffet when a heating lamp exploded above 6 food trays contaminating the food in them. Two trays were taken away, leaving four others on the serving line. Only after the Manager was notified were two more taken away, leaving two in the serving line. They were still there when we left. The only bright side of this fiasco was our server, Leticia. She was great.

In my opinion the manager was more interested in transacting the credit charge than the safety and well being of his customers.
