Horrible, horrible, horrible. Literally the worst buffet I've ever had and the first time I went there years ago they double charged us but we didn't know until we talked about it with our co-diners later.

This has the best buffet in Drumheller, by far. For small/medium town in Alberta, this has a good variety in Chinese and always some interesting Western as well. The staff are very friendly, Sandy and her family are great! Don't sit near the windows in...More
