This buffet has some of the freshest prepared food. The kitchen is constantly replacing and refilling the food. There is a huge variety of Chinese and American foods. This is even a great place to stop with a bus. Large seating areas are available and with all the various buffet lines, it doesn't take long to enjoy a great meal.

The food and service in general is horrible I was seated to a tiny corner when I had a party of four with me they did not give me a chance to sit down before they started asking me about drinks. I explained to them this is my first time here and they just hurried up and rushed through everything.... More

Plenty of food to pick from and staff very nice and helpful. As it's a buffet young kids can go and pick what they want which is good.

Price is very reasonable. I personally loves buffet food and it's not because it can be waste all you want. It is because I have many dishes to choice from. I ate at buffet star once a week. The food is always fresh. I always finish what I have in my plate before starts another trip to the buffet and... More

This establishment is the absolute worst. I've gone here for years & always loved it. The building is beautiful and there are a lot of options. The other night, I was there with my parents. We walked in and there was no one in the front. We waited to be seated. A few employees walked past us without saying anything... More

Good selection of a great variety of foods. Ice cream area was nasty and the scoops were recycled back into a common bowl of water for rinsing. Not good. Service was good. Prices were somewhat higher than expected.
