Wife and I stopped by before taking in a movie next door. We were there on a Saturday night and it was very busy. Typical "country home" decor. We weren't expecting the quality of food to be very good. We were pleasantly surprised. The salad bar was well stocked and everything was fresh. They had a couple a soups to... More

There is a wide variety of food to appease almost anyone's tastes. The food was fresh and tasty. The restaurant was clean and had a very friendly staff. ----- wish there was one of these near us.

I don't like buffets, but Chuck-A-Rama is an exception. The food isn't fancy, but it's high quality, and everything is tasty and well prepared. Steam tables are kept diligently clean, salads and desserts are refreshed regularly, and entrees are always clean and tempting looking. They have a few of my favorite dishes, and it's a tremendous bargain.

Ate here when visiting and have to say the buffet was pretty good! Having eaten at other places like this in Albuquerque, I have to say the selection and freshness at Chuck a Rama was better than those others. The meat selection was plentiful, the sides numerous & tasty, lots of fresh veggies on the salad bar, & tons of... More

I think the quality and environment of chuck o rama make a difference. I like the fried chicken, mash potatoes and stuffing combination plus the salad bar has a good selection of toppings. The restaurant is well lite and seating is comfortable. Every Christmas I enjoy celebrating another year by eating out at Chuck o Rama. It is a favorite

Great selection, and well presented. Clean service area, attractive setups. Service is good. Food is good and plenty of it. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Better than other buffets in the area. Clean and well maintained dining area.

Large selection of desserts & drinks too! The Salad Bar is the largest I have ever seen! If you are hungry & want to eat NOW, this... More

Very clean, everyone is friendly and wait staff is prompt. It is usually crowded due to the great tasting food and the variety available. I honestly cannot think of a single negative thing to say about this restaurant and it is always an enjoyable experience to eat here. The price of a meal is reasonable.
