This would be a good place to stop if you are traveling with a family. There is a wide variety of food available and each person should be able to find something they like. The food is average buffet food. You should get plenty of food and desert is included. If you are looking for a more upscale experience there... More

Our group was seated quickly and we were first in the buffet line. I started with fried rice and chicken, then I found the shrimp and spanish rice and they were great. After a salad I was too full to try the prime rib. I didn't hear anyone in our group have any complaints.

Mostly frozen entrees, only saving grace was fresh lettuce and cucumbers on salad bar. Server was great but could not make up for poor quality of the food.

Thought we would try this buffet because it offered lots of food selections. Well the food was barely ok and the cost was way too high for the quality of food served. We figured we eat at Golden Corral so it couldn’t be too bad. Well after eating at Custer Corral Family Buffet the Golden Corral seems like a 5... More

We thought it was a steak house that we had eaten at before and were surprised that it was now a buffet. Sure it featured a multi-ethnic choice menu, Mexican, Oriental, Italian, "cowboy" with a all you can eat prime rib. The price was a shock since it was nearly 20 bucks and then you still had to order and... More

This place is still open so NOT closed. We had the same server, Davine, both visits this week and she's the epitome of good customer service and a very pleasant person to have wait on us. Thumbs up to the food and thumbs up to Davine!

We had a really good waiter named Healthy, I swear that's what he said his name was. We went on all-you-can-eat prime rib night and the wife had three helpings, she really liked it. There was a variety of items on the buffet and the place was pretty clean. We stopped in because we just didn't know what we wanted... More

The food was surprisingly good for a buffet. Selection was huge. They had Prime rib, along with Asian, Italian, Mexican and American stations. The salad bar was pretty good, too.

When I last visited this restaurant, in 2014, it was not a buffet. The change has done it no good. While there is a wide variety of food available, there is no discernible order to its placement. The roast turkey and runny mashed potatoes seemed to have maximum sodium and minimum taste. I would not return.
