Have to say good selections on Buffet, Service good, Clean Family Atmosphere, $10 still a bargain for seniors. My favorite orders are Pork Egg Foo Yung and Pork Lo Mein, have to order Egg Foo Yung at least half hour ahead but worth the wait.

Good home style food. Children and family friendly. Very ample portions. Great selection of desert (homemade pies and cakes). I especially like their breakfast menu. Cell phones do not work in this restaurant.

ate here at the last minute after deciding to go out to eat late. Food on the buffet was very good, a huge variety, and hot. They were still adding food to the containers that were low and we got there about 7pm
