Great food. Turkey was good but the ham was great. Had most of the family there and had a good time. Had plenty of different desserts including sugar free

Lunch and dinner with very varied buffet. Some locations also serve breakfast. Large selection of salads, meat and poultry, and desserts. Drinks cost extra but this is a bargain restaurant for those who love variety and large portions. Self-serve.

There is always excellent variety. Last time they had good roast beef AND steak. NOT prime grade, but tasty and done just right. Lots of variety at the salad bar area. The price is not cheap, but also not too high. My biggest gripe is the hordes of young children, so many of them crying or running loose.

It's a good chain. They need to change up the menu sometimes. Great fried chicken. Good soups. Salads bar is fresh and well tended.

We have been here several times, usually for early dinner or late lunch. We use one of the coupons from their ad and that makes the meal cheaper by 25%. It has always been clean with the food items plentiful and well stocked. The Hospitality manager is all over the room and very attentive to his customers. Our plates are... More

My wife and I visited on this occassion because we had a coupon and we were not disappointed although the place could have been cleaner. The food was above average but, lacking in some choices such as a wider variety in vegetables. The food that was there tasted great and will definitely return when we can. Thanks

We eat here couple times for lunch in the last 6 months. The Buffet is average to good quality with many choices including soup, salad, steak, chicken, ribs and fruits not to mention ice cream for a reasonable price around $8. Will do it gain with friends once in a while...

You cant beat Breakfast Buffet at this price. A lot of selection. It gets a little crowded at times but the food pays for it
