I have been here several times, it has fair to average food on the buffet. The selection varies by day, the wings are really good if you can catch them, the rest of the food is just the typical cheap buffet style quality.

Food wasn't that great, just a lot of it! Typical Southern fried food. Waitresses weren't too attentive, was only asked once if I wanted a refill. Expensive for what you get $13.95 plus drink. Over $60 for family with a tip. No discount for child...More
