I got there at 3:45 because we had been out most of the day got hungry saw Golden Corral and decided to stop in. I guess we got there at a time when they were about to change to dinner. The funny thing was the pans were all pretty close to empty but NOTHING changed except they added the grilled... More

This is an awful restaurant for so many reasons. First of all, the name is appropriate because the customers acted like a herd of cattle, pushing to the front of lines. I've never seen anything like it. As to the food, it was poor quality and bland. I could barely find anything suitable to ear. By far the worst buffet... More

Price higher than expected, even higher when our family went on Friday night. A hard time getting any food as people constantly in the way by all foods. The traffic of people horrendous. Foods that were most sought after unavailable or not ready. Food selection not worth the price.

I only had breakfast there but I have to say that the options are good and well done. It is a very cheap buffet for the food they offer. Not the best coffee and I would add better fruit but other than that I was very satisfied with the breakfast

My boys and I are picky by no means. The prime rib had no flavor and was very dry. Went to try another piece after they brought out a new one and the same thing. We then tried the sirloin and it was so bad. Could barely chew it. It was the worst cut of meat. The red potatoes were... More

It is a good place to get decent food at a decent price. It was a little crowded but they kept the food fresh and hot. Steaks and prime rib were good. If you are looking for a variety of food at a decent price, this is a decent stop

Don't waste your time, energy or health insurance on this...It sucks in many ways but, when you see an unsupervised brat dig out a "Nose Nugget" and plant it in the corn...You get the picture!

Decent food, mostly hot for appropriate items, good salad bar & dessert bar. Service slow and spotty, long waits for drink refills and plate clearance

This is a nice place if you are on the road and want to take a break. Ave may selections of food. Only problem is that the cake I had was dry and crumbly.

The pot roast was very good, but with such a wide assortment of items, everything else was pretty good too. You will be stuffed when you leave. Try to save room for the chocolate fountain. The staff was attentive and friendly. The place really fills up so I suggest an early arrival and come hungry.
