Came here for dinner on a Tuesday night. Not too busy at 5:30. Food was good not great it could've been more fresh but there was plenty of stuff to choose from if you got something that wasn't fresh.

We were staying at the casino and thought we would give the buffet a try since they were promoting the prime rib. The prime rib wasn't very prime and the other items on the buffet were just not very good. It's probably a step below Golden Corral. With that said, the servers were very polite and attentive.

This buffet is hands down the best buffet in Blackhawk. The service alone will always have me coming back. They treat veterans very well with a 25% discount.

A waiting line greeted us at dinnertime, but it moved along. We had expected $19.99 each for the buffet, but it wasn't until we reached the cashier that we were informed that it was $29.99 each that Sunday night (crab was being served, and although we didn't partake, it was probably why the price was higher.)
