Great selection, and well presented. Clean service area, attractive setups. Service is good. Food is good and plenty of it. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Better than other buffets in the area. Clean and well maintained dining area.

The selection of food is extensive at this buffet! Turkey, Roast Beef, Chinese, Fish, Mexican, Italian...you name it, they probably will have it! Has always been good no matter what they are serving. Large selection of desserts & drinks too! The Salad Bar is the largest I have ever seen! If you are hungry & want to eat NOW, this... More

Very clean, everyone is friendly and wait staff is prompt. It is usually crowded due to the great tasting food and the variety available. I honestly cannot think of a single negative thing to say about this restaurant and it is always an enjoyable experience to eat here. The price of a meal is reasonable.

Pretty darn good food for a buffet. Like going to a pot luck dinner and all of your aunts made your favorite dishes. The turkey with dressing in gravy was better than the pressed carved version probably my only complaint. Also a good bargain for seniors @ $11.99/PP, can't go wrong for soup to dessert including a drink and a... More

We stopped in at the check Arama buffet in Boise Idaho because it was convenient to our hotel. Very glad we did, way better than any buffets that we have in Florida. Food was very high quality staff was very efficient and friendly. Hopefully they'll be opening some in Florida soon

They have a good selection, and it's reasonably priced, yet you do have to make sure to bring an empty stomach and a willingness to eat more than you know you should. Their service staff are extremely helpful and nice, so be sure to leave a tip - because they definitely deserve it when you're leaving stacks of plates at... More

I like Chuck-A-Rama for it's home style tasting food. Much better than several other chain buffets. The selection of food is like walking through the line at a family picnic where everyone has brought their "A" game of dishes.

They have special days for different kinds of food, so check out their website before planning a trip here. Whatever the specialty of the day is, they still have many of the regular selections available too. We have found most items to be consistently delicious. They have plenty of fresh salads and fruit along with the standard comfort foods like... More
