This is a family owned and operated restaurant with the main focus of feeding many people good quality food in short periods of time. Yes, there is a renovation going on and no sign saying something like "Please Excuse the Mess". If you are looking for atmosphere and explanations, you will not find it at this down home kind of eatery. If you are hungry for good food, then you found the right place. Deserts to die for with wholesome main courses. Personally, I like to begin with the salad bar. It is well planned and delicious. Plain non-alcohol drinks are served by very attentive waitresses. They offer personalized sliced Steamship Round Roast Beef, Pork and Turkey.REAL mashed potatoes, not out of a box, or freezer. Much more.
This fare is for the hungry traveler who wants good food and lots of it. There is only one person to blame if you go away hungry....you.

Finished our Washington DC bus tour here. It was ok. One could see that the restaurant was in the process of remodeling. There were no signs explaining the remodeling. Just junk on floor and primed-over wallpaper. The restaurant looked old. The buffet had a great selection of food. Didn't get refills of tea. Not impressed with restaurant.

I went there with a friend of mine, and I was all excited because I love buffets, and I must say the food was terrible!! Definitely not worth the money, and this is coming from a professional food critic. Also, the building itself is in bad sharp with boxes all over the place and it wasn't a pleasant place to be. The beans were good, but that's about it. This restaurant would greatly benefit from Restaurant Impossible.

Great Buffet. Fried Chicken is the best around. On any given day there are always fresh hot and cold foods on the buffet. Many desserts to choose from also. Staff is nice. Atmosphere is country. Nice selection of items/souvenirs to buy in the entrance way.

We stopped here on a tour. We did not expect much but OMG the food was excellent. Except for the American chop suey. Now my husband is a very picky eater and he said it was better than he expected. I will eat mostly anything. The fried chicken was to die for. It is buffet style so it is all you can eat. Good desserts too
