Had the best selection of foods we like for under $20! Now that is a deal you can't resist! Well worth the ride from New Bern, Get there early, as lots of locals patronize it and the seats get filled up quickly!

I just arrived back in the area two weeks ago and discovered that it is being renovated and turned into a Mexican Restaurant. My family lives this app when we travel and it's so helpful to have up to date info.

Terrible. The worst buffet I have ever experienced. There was nothing redeeming. The restaurant was also very dirty. It was like a place on Kitchen Nightmares, Chef Ramsay needs to stop by.

No seasoning in the food on the buffet. The only thing that didn't taste like frozen food was the chicken (good luck at getting to that)!
