The place is sort of like Golden Corral, except it's cold and has no flavor. The place is a ghost town, more often than not. Their idea of a chinese dish on the buffet was a HUGE bowl of fried rice. Which was cold and crunchy. Find Jack-in-the-Box, you'll get better quality!

The last time I visited this restaurant it was almost a ghost town. It was not as up to par as my previous visits. There are a wide variety of dishes and they are hit or miss. I believe the price had gone up since the last time I was there. It's definately the spot to go if you have... More

This place was fantastic when it first opened up. The food was always fresh and hot and the service was unbelievable. The place was always clean and the staff friendly. I'm not exactly sure what happened but this place really went downhill. The cleanliness was the first to go next the food started to really go downhill. Don't even bother... More
