No one in the buffet and maybe that should have clues us in. Having said that, it was OK for us for the price -$13.99. You can’t get a salad for that - so for that price we would go again. Food not that good...More

This buffet is pretty big, with lots of different stations. Italian, Deli, Chinese, Salad Bar, Mexican, Dessert... And, everything I tried was good. I would certainly go back, particularly because it's right near the video poker section, and that's my game.

Description
Our Centennial Buffet allows you to dine from Italy to China. Or you can choose to feast on traditional American or Mexican fare or even our all-you-can-eat crab extravaganza. And the sumptuous dessert bar is not to be missed.But no matter how far you travel, in a culinary sense, the restaurant's décor, with its hand-hewn timbers, wrought iron fixtures, and majestic stone columns will bring you right back to Colorado and its rustic charm.
