It's a Mexican buffet, which is different, but the food is always a bit disappointing and sad. I don't know if these dishes don't take well to sitting under heat lamps, or they didn't taste fresh to begin with, or maybe I just like more spice? My friends have voted to go several times so maybe it's just me.

La Alameda seems to be known primarily for their buffet (lunch and dinner), and this is for good reason. The food is good, and the staff is one of the friendliest in Huntsville. The buffet is unique that it is all you can eat, but instead of serving yourself, there is a dedicated server behind the bar to plate up... More

Had their buffet tonight. The staff was friendly and very attentive. Unfortunately, the food was fair at best. Several of the buffet items were dry. All of the food was just kind of bland.

laid back, good place for lunch. i always get the buffet. server is very nice, and she does not skimp. best things to me are the beef tacos (loaded with meat) and enchiladas. tamales are hit or miss, and typically are bland. at any rate, there's plenty on the buffet to take you back for two or three more trips....

We arrived in Huntsville after a day of driving. After checking in to our hotel, we searched for a Chinese buffet. When we got there, it was closed. So we so La Alameda and decided to eat there. GREAT choice. We didn't realize that they had a buffet. When we took a look at the offerings on the buffet, we... More

We ate here last night. We ordered from the menu and it was delicious. We had one of their special plates which included several kinds of meat. Their chips came out warm. They have a buffet which seemed popular. The employees are always friendly and provide fast service.

Was able to try many things on their buffet. Server explained what each item was and was very friendly and helpful. Impossible to leave there hungry.

I have ordered twice from this restaurant, both times through Grubsouth. I give high marks to the rice, beans, cheese enchiladas, and chips/salsa. As some of the other reviewers have noted, the cheese dip leaves much to be desired. And I was unimpressed by the enchiladas rancheros. As to one writer's comments about Grubsouth, I am completely at a loss.... More
