What a find! Great selection of a variety of food. Everything was fresh and delicious. Very casual. Very economical. Loved this place. I of course was trying to stay on a low carb diet and found lots of things to eat. They also had things I would have loved to try and will when I go there next time.

Great to explore all the dishes you always read about but don't find at home. There is something for everyone's taste: savoury and sweet, meats and greens.

Skip Sylvia's. You must try Jacob's. We were visiting from Philly and it was recommended to try Jacob's. We are happy we did. The West Indie and Soul food buffet was delicious. Everything was fresh from the fruit/ salad to the entrees. The price is reasonably. It's set up cafeteria style and there is a section to sit down to eat. Try it! You want be disappointed. Don't forget to grab some cornbread! So good!!
