Nice eatery with great staff. Very clean and welcoming. Buffet included great Mexican menu along with a different buffet with other American menu selections.

Years ago this was THE place to go...great food...outstanding number of choices...everything fresh and hot. Not so much anymore. The last 3 times I/We've been the food has been average at best...borderline dangerous at worst.

The staff is always fast and attentive...but that isn't where the issue is. While there are many different choices on the buffet line...unless you're there when it's FIRST put out...chances are it will be cold. I've had to tell them that the steam tables aren't on at least twice.

I hope they get back to the standards they USED to have...it can be a great place, AGAIN.

Who are writing these glowing reviews?!?!? I just had one of the worst meals ever!! The variety of food was okay, but the quality was terrible. Most of the food comes right out of a can or frozen from a box. Canned vegetables were mushy and bland! I saw some flies buzzing around the dessert bar. One word to describe the buffet food...SLOP!! The menu items might be better...but the buffet is a MUST SKIP!

We were quite pleasantly surprised by the warm and inviting interior of this spacious restaurant, festively decorated for Christmas. The buffet has a large variety of entrees and sides (both American and Mexican). The food was hot and delicious (I had fried catfish, hush puppies, green beans, slaw, carrots and kernel corn). Bread pudding lives up to its yummy reputation.
