Had lunch here yesterday . The lunch buffet is only $6.95 which isn't bad even if the selection isn't the best compared to others . Most of what I had was meat and veggies cooked on a flat grill. This place needs a remodel pretty bad

It's not a bad place, but it's not great either. Compared to other options available in the area it's not one I'd recommend. The best part was the hibachi grill, but even then the chef only cooked 1 person's food at a time on a big grill. Staff is friendly, but you had to "hunt them down" and they were... More

Easy to get too with plentiful parking. Wait staff very efficient and helpful with the service. The food is always fresh and hot and the variety is amazing for a restaurant of this size. Prices are also affordable for a family.

Great buffet and huge selection. Food is always hot and the place is always busy but big enough to not be crowded. Have never had to wait to be seated. Staff makes sure drink never goes dry.
