The price is fair, but the quality of the food matches the price. The good news is that there is something for everyone here.

If you like eating copious amounts of boot, pigeon and dog crap, you've come to the right place! I started out with a salad because, let's face it, you can't mess up a salad. Now when the salad is the high point of your meal,...More

We like going here but they have raised their prices making this an expensive choice. Especially if you have a family. The food is decent for a buffet and their are alot of choices.

Food was OK, nothing special. Taco meat was rather boring, almost tasteless. If you are looking for a food fill up, this place will work, but not high quality

I went on a Sunday with my wife and we were pleasantly surprised by the food. The two items that stuck out the most were their chicken pot pies and their carrot. They have a great selection of items at their buffet.

Went for Thanksgiving. My wife received some turkey that was still pink. Turned her off from eating anything more. I love the taco fixings.

I too have never been for breakfast. But I suggest taking your family to Dennys or IHOP before here. It's mass produced, half the time cold, people sticking their hands in the food... not good!!
