The food was ok, I had heard great things about it so want to check this place out. There were a lot of choices, which was nice. Some of the items were cold though. Service was ok nothing to write home about.

We drive over one hour just to go to this buffet, it is that good. They have a large variety of food, not just chicken done 10 ways. My husband loves their soups, all of them. I recommend this restaurant.
