Stopped in for dinner. The buffet looked very good. They have it for lunch and dinner. We opted for Kung Pao chicken, General Tsao chicken and pork fried rice. They were all very well prepared. Plenty of food to feed 4 people.

First, this buffet is open every day. Second, it is less than half price. Third, every item is tasty and well prepared. Fourth, they put out amounts based on how busy they are so that they keep fresh food on the buffet. The item count...More
