First impression " where's the meat?" Most of the serving dishes were empty. 2 skinny little egg rolls, 2 pieces of something that looked like chicken. No wings. More breading than meat on everything . Chewed tums the rest of the day.

Clean enough, but food very bland. Fried rice had NO flavor. Minimal items in buffet. No chicken wings. Could not tell General Tao's chicken from sweet and sour chicken. Unimpressive.

Galax is a very small town, so very few options for food. Even fewer places are open on Sunday. This family owned restaurant offers good food at decent price ( Sunday buffet brunch 6.99). Yes, the staff is very attentive.

Located downtown Galax, this place usually has fresh food and no crowds. Buffet is kept up with fresh foods. Friendly and fast service. Good place for lunch.
