The Bardstown Road location should be CLOSED. The food was scarce, under cooked or over cooked or stale or tasteless. The service was terrible and both my wife and I are now nauseous from eating there. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.

For a place competing with Golden Corral for customers, you would think they would lower their prices. The food isn't always worth the 10 or so dollars. The staff is friendly.
