One of the worst buffets I have ever been to in my life, and I have been to a lot-- and the only one where I got sick only 2 hours after I started eating it. My son and I were really hungry after driving...More

Chinese food is not typically good in the midwest, and Junction City is no exception. Family Buffet has many reasonably good dishes from which to choose and everything is edible (unlike some other Chinese food restaurants in town). If you just want one item, recommend...More

Food tastes good, pretty good variety. Excellent price. Quality can be iffy, especially when it's not real busy. Takeout option is by the pound, can't beat it for the variety. Waitstaff is very friendly but is very hit-or-miss with their attention to drink refills and...More

Buffet, not hot food. The place is in fairly good shape. Not much choice around. Not sure if I would go back.

In my home town, we have pretty crummy Chinese food buffets, so it was a really pleasant surprise when I walked into Family Buffet for the first time. I have been to Junction City about 5 times and never stopped in here. I am definitely...More
