Husband and I went to China City Buffet, 3524 S New Braunfels San Antonio Texas today. I'm sorry to say you can not rate them low enough. Food was dry and old, but we were wanting to eat.

Huge selection, but nothing special. Everything I tried was hot and fresh, but lacked seasoning.

Huge dining area, but carpet could use cleaning/replacing.

This all you can eat buffet has all of the typical offerings you would expect but done well and what sets it apart is the Mongolian BBQ. Select your own ingredients and it is cooked on the BBQ grill-fresh and as spicy as you want. Don't come looking for atmosphere: Do come hungry.
