The food was diversified and good, prices are reasonable, the service was also good. Why don't they serve beer?

Go instead to Penny's Diner or the Dairy Queen at the end of town. We stopped in for dinner and the food appeared to have been sitting there since lunch. Small amounts in the warmer and dried up or empty. Completely overpriced and $11/person for such few selections of actual food ( lots of dessert type food) was insane. The... More

They offer a great variety of food and deserts. The food is tasty and it's hard to not over eat . You will enjoy. Atmosphere is casual.

It was dirty. The food was terrible. I made myself eat some melon because it seemed like my safest option. I complained when we left and they took $5 off my $50 tab within seconds like that's there usual thing to do. $5 didn't even cover the drinks or one plate of food so no thank you!! The food was...

It may have been better earlier in the day, but too typical of many Asian buffets, the food sits in a steam table until it is eaten or the place closes. Facility not all that clean either. Only other option would be the fast food places.

Chinese buffets can be excellent or really bad. This one was average. The food was a good temperature and the selection was fare. The dumplings were really good. The service was okay. For fast Chinese, it was a good choice.

Visited Panda for supper. Food was ok and confirmed no MSG. Dishes were mostly just acceptable- nothing outstanding. Staff replenished buffet items when running low. Egg drop soup was not great. Not a place I would return to on a future visit, but food was edible. Place needs a good cleaning. Staff was friendly and seemed to appreciate the business.

We visited Alpine, not knowing how hard it was to get a seat in a restaurant. Several were closed because it was Sunday, and the rest were completely full. The only one that was not crowded was Panda Buffet. But, the food was only warm, not really hot, and the cold food, was not really cold. They did have ice... More

If I lived in Alpine, I would probably not go here by choice. The place is kind of dingy, and the food mediocre at best. But . . . when you got up at four in the morning and towed your camper nine and a half hours, followed by two hours of set up? Man did this hit the spot.... More
