If you like Asian cuisine, come here for a good buffet at a good price. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Food is fresh and consistently replenished before running out on the buffet bar. Worth checking out,

Stayed overnight in Tuscaloosa. Had dinner at Buffet City. It is an average Chinese Chinese buffet. They have an OK assortment of Chinese dishes. They also have Hibachi and Sushi. Food was average. I did not have anything bad, but nothing outstanding either.

I don't have the words to describe this place in greater detail than do not try it. The food was gross. It's a mix match of all sorts of bad ideas. It was not clean. It was not fresh. It was a waste of money.

This place was okay, but nothing to write home about. When we told the staff of the Days Inn that we had eaten there, they were not impressed.

My friend and I have been to Buffet City fairly often--for lunch--when we have lots of time to sample this and that. I always get the Hot and Sour soup and wonder what it will taste like "this" time! Generally , it is good but always tastes a little different than it did the last time! Most of the other... More
