Long line for the buffet. 20 minutes before we got to be seated. Worth the wait. Great food. Server was the friendliest I've seen there. Was in for breakfast and was amazed how great the food is and also the srrvice.

I have never had a bad experience here. Sometimes there is a line and it might take a bit but service is friendly and they have a good menu and decent prices. Also have good specials.

A wide variety of dishes. Staff kept the food on the buffet refreshed. Our server was on the ball and kept our beverages full and our used plates removed.

This place is excellent if you hit it on the right night. If not, it's a bad experience. High turnover with employees so you never get guaranteed good service. On a good nite however, it's fabulous !

Terrific burgers & nachos. Open 24hrs. Also has pizza & breakfast sandwiches. When busy, they can take 1/2 hour for your order.

The bench seat was ripped and dirty. My friend wanted to order toast. Waitress was missing in action for over 20 minutes. We had to flag down the bus boy. Food was good and lots of variety for breakfast.

A nice little deli with reasonably priced food. The chicken wild rice soup is to die for. A busy little eating area off to the side from a noisy casino area.
