I ate at this restaurant several times during a 3-month work assignment, typically at lunch. They had some of my favorites and the quality was good to excellent. I would say it was above average in selection and quality. It was affordable and fast and...More

This is the high point of our stay in Junction City. This is an outdated facility, and the buffet offerings are plentiful and there's plenty to where you shouldn't leave hungry. The day we went it was clean and quiet. All foods are cooked with...More

One of the worst buffets I have ever been to in my life, and I have been to a lot-- and the only one where I got sick only 2 hours after I started eating it. My son and I were really hungry after driving...More

Chinese food is not typically good in the midwest, and Junction City is no exception. Family Buffet has many reasonably good dishes from which to choose and everything is edible (unlike some other Chinese food restaurants in town). If you just want one item, recommend...More

Decided to just give it a try, being new in town. The restaurant is in need of a major remodeling. Tables are wobbly, seats sit to far from the tables, and both are in poor condition. Food was blah. Cold and lacked flavor. Mac and...More

Do yourself a favor and bypass the Family Buffet. There's a Cracker Barrel nearby that will provide you with a much better meal. While the Family Buffet does have a lot of variety to choose from, it's all mediocre at best. I tried several items...More

Great place for those who want to eat a lot, but the food is only medioacre at best. Not a place for people who want good food.

My family loves this place, but I don't know why. I think it's the abundance of food. It's an all-you-can-eat Chinese Buffet; also having American choices like corn dogs and french fries. I find the place to be dirty and won't eat there anymore because...More

Food tastes good, pretty good variety. Excellent price. Quality can be iffy, especially when it's not real busy. Takeout option is by the pound, can't beat it for the variety. Waitstaff is very friendly but is very hit-or-miss with their attention to drink refills and...More
