The staff at Restylers recommended Desi's for lunch. The food was delicious, the buffet was hot and clean, and the staff was wonderful. This was a great, quick, reasonable lunch!

Best fried chicken in town! My only complaint is that they aren't open more than just lunch during the week.

This restaurant is open for lunch and has a food buffet, salad bar and dessert buffet. The food is good "down home" country tasting. It is priced well and the service is quick.
