You can't beat the price to eat @ JB's Buffet in Freeport, FL. They have a wide variety of dishes on the buffet, including sushi and they also have dessert.

Striving to elevate your experience to perhaps merely okay at best. Went there at lunch time. Things should have been at their peak. Selection was limited. Buffet food was merely warm, not hot. Too many things were either overcooked or dried out from being prepared too early. Generally speaking, having enjoyed many Chinese buffets in locations over several states, the... More

I ate there for the lunch buffet. The price is goo for the selection. Some of the chicken items were old mixed with fresh: noted be the rubbery texture. But not to bad: compared to others. Please note that if every cheap asian buffet was to make fresh selections daily/hourly, they couldn't sustain the business. So, keep this in mind... More

Not my favorite place in town. The building needs painting . The buffet is cold and items needed to be refreshed. Woton soup was very disappointing.

Middle of the afternoon on a Monday. Items on buffet seem somewhat tired. Mongolian beef was only thing I would recommend and it was almost gone.

I don't know if it's the new ownership but they even have sushi that isn't half bad. Before everything was fried and brown but now there is fresh stir fry veggies and it was really good. I was impressed for this little town you have my vote.

My family visits JB's every 6 weeks or so. We live in another city (Crestview, 30 miles away), so it is a bit of a drive for us. The buffet is usually well stocked with hot entrees, not lukewarm. We enjoy getting our Asian food fix from JB's!
