Somewhat stranded at a local hotel waiting for a motorcyclee tire to be FEDEX'd to Alpine, Texas, I needed something other than a pizza delivery. Alpine does not have a taxi service and the nearest food joint is McDonalds near the Ros Sul campus. Panda's Buffett delivered and was one of very few options. Very quickly my ordered of two...

First, I recognize it's a Chinese buffet ... but the food was very scarce and really not good at all. We've eaten at a bunch of Chinese buffets, and this was the worst ... but again, what were we thinking? Chinese buffet in Alpine...

The food is good and was fresh because it was very busy on a Sunday night. Typical selection for a buffet

Despite some of the bad reviews, I dined here Christmas night. The buffet looked a bit tired, so I ordered off the menu. I was not disappointed. My chicken and mushrooms was served with rice and egg roll. The food was freshly cooked, tasty, and not too salty. chicken was not "Frozen hard" but hot, moist and tender. Veggies were... More

Definitely try the teriyaki chicken sticks and the sugar doughnuts. It does have a lot of choices as a buffet should. I really don't have anything else to say about this place.

We really did not want to eat at a buffet but everything else in town was closed so we tired Panda's. Although we were a little on the late side for dinner around 8:30PM it was open and had customers. Typical Chinese buffet and some of the dishes were nearly empty but we had more than enough and the quality... More

The food was diversified and good, prices are reasonable, the service was also good. Why don't they serve beer?

Go instead to Penny's Diner or the Dairy Queen at the end of town. We stopped in for dinner and the food appeared to have been sitting there since lunch. Small amounts in the warmer and dried up or empty. Completely overpriced and $11/person for such few selections of actual food ( lots of dessert type food) was insane. The... More

They offer a great variety of food and deserts. The food is tasty and it's hard to not over eat . You will enjoy. Atmosphere is casual.

It was dirty. The food was terrible. I made myself eat some melon because it seemed like my safest option. I complained when we left and they took $5 off my $50 tab within seconds like that's there usual thing to do. $5 didn't even cover the drinks or one plate of food so no thank you!! The food was...
