Although not quite as spiffy as its Sedalia counterpart, this Missouri eatery is still worth a visit. The buffet is reasonably priced and the variety is extensive. They could use more parking for the handicapped.

We gathered with cousins for a reunion dinner (10 of us). There was a wide variety of different food to accommodate every taste. We were able to rearrange tables to seat all of us together. We laughed and quite frankly got a little loud but...More
