Driving from Los Angeles to northern California decided to stop for lunch. The next stop along the highway was Santa Nella. Didn't feel like fast food, so I tried Buckhorn. The service and food were both okay, I've had better. If you don't want fast...More

I stopped here because I saw a billboard for the buffet. I was pleasantly surprised by the extensive menu for a variety of other dishes. The prices were very reasonable and the service was excellent.

Was not impressed at all. Food was horrible and the waitress should retire. Normally I wouldn't say that but she was the extremely slow and not busy. Took 20 minutes to get my drink and order. Will not be back.
