For a place that USED to be great but has fallen into complacent mediocrity...it's truly a shame. Went there yesterday with my wife and grand daughter. I REALLY hoped it had improved since the last time we'd been, but that didn't happen. Most of the hot foods weren't...lukewarm at best. We were there at 1200 EXACTLY. The ONLY thing I... More

The food was really good! The staff was very friendly and service was quick. A popular spot to eat. I would definately go back if in the area.

Years ago this was THE place to go...great food...outstanding number of choices...everything fresh and hot. Not so much anymore. The last 3 times I/We've been the food has been average at best...borderline dangerous at worst. The staff is always fast and attentive...but that isn't where the issue is. While there are many different choices on the buffet line...unless you're there... More

Who are writing these glowing reviews?!?!? I just had one of the worst meals ever!! The variety of food was okay, but the quality was terrible. Most of the food comes right out of a can or frozen from a box. Canned vegetables were mushy and bland! I saw some flies buzzing around the dessert bar. One word to describe... More

We were quite pleasantly surprised by the warm and inviting interior of this spacious restaurant, festively decorated for Christmas. The buffet has a large variety of entrees and sides (both American and Mexican). The food was hot and delicious (I had fried catfish, hush puppies, green beans, slaw, carrots and kernel corn). Bread pudding lives up to its yummy reputation.

Fam has been several times. Great food. Big variety. Nice salad bar. Clean. No waiting. Quick, pleasant service. Huge restaurant/separate bar, (we've never been in the bar). We always get the buffet & like to go on Saturday nights as it's a steak buffet. For under $10 per person, we think it's a terrific deal!

We showed up at night (around 8:45). The kitchen closes relatively early. At the bar they have no food :-( nothing, ... no small snacks or microwave stuff. Bar has nice variety of beer, very friendly staff. Everything was set up for Halloween - looks good, well done! I would go there again.

They advertise that they serve real Mexican food. Well, I can report they serve good food and it was real enough for me to leave stuffed as well as happy. The service was excellent and quick to make it an overall good experience.

I met a dear friend from college here that I had not seen for years....neither of us had been here before. We were pleased with the restaurant, menu choices, buffet, wait staff and cleanliness. The bartender/waitress was very attentive and we will probably arrange to meet there again, on our next meeting. They also have daily specials that are worth... More
