“Are you serious?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is some of the grossest buffet food I've ever had(and that's saying something!) We had a "Fear Factor" contest and dared each other to eat the grossest looking buffet items. This place is awful!!!

“Great food at Great Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We went there and found the senior package which is the buffet and drink for $5.99, it is an incredible deal. The waitress was so friendly and attentive that we went back the next day. you need to go between 2 and 4pm monday - Friday. It is worth it!!!!

“buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

if you have children and they like to choose what they eat this is a great place, my little sister loves it because she can make her own plate and pick what she wants to eat and no one tells her no. they also have icecream when you are ready for a sweet treat. friday is mostly fish but they have a few other things as well. they have a salad bar and if you want they have a regular menu as well. the people are nice as well, and they are always putting out fresh food.

“Value Buffet with nice desserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

If you're looking to tank up on a variety of American fare, this is the place for you. The buffet offers a reasonable selection of cafeteria quality entrees, sides, and salads. I didn't find the steak much to crow about but the food fueling offerings will have you leaving as stuffed as you'd care to.
