The food that I ate or even tried to eat was cold, and soggy. The trays of food are brought out and not properly keep to temperature. The areas around the food tables are not keep clear of debris or food remnants. Some of the seating areas need chair repairs. I did not check out the bathrooms

It was our first time at this buffet, and will be our last. Carpets were definitely dirty, while everything else just seemed dirty. Roaches on the walls and the staff not even eating the buffet food. Food itself seemed like it had been sitting out for a day or two. Take a walk around the restaurant before deciding.

If you don't want to wait on service this is probably the place to go. Food is fair and service is very quick.

this was my first time eating in this resturant and it will be definitely my last. the servers and their manager were so rude, how can you tell a customer "what ever" and "get out of here", it is so unheard off, also their food was cold, as cold as something that just came out from the fridge, i rather...
