I ate here last night again. Each time I go, I think it will be better this time, but it's not. The bland food looked as if it had been out on the buffet all day. I had to ask for empty pans to be...More

We ended up here on the advice of our hotel, as it was Valentines Day and all the restaurants in town were booked. The buffet food was good, vast selection. There was a freezer full of ice cream, serve and scoop yourself. It was busy...More

This is not good food. It is very dirty and the food looked like it had been out for a while. Don't recommend it

Don't be deceived by the slightly insalubrious setting. Avoid the buffet. But, if you order off the menu, the food is REALLY nice. One finds these kinds of places out in the middle of Nowhere, TX; but this place knocks the spots off some of...More

Saw this place while cycling and went back for dinner. It was Saturday night and 4 tables were occupied. Selection was okay, albeit some food trays were running low or empty. Granted, it was almost closing time. Food was tasty; however, the place itself needs...More
