We went through the buffet and had a hard time finding anything that was more than warm on the buffet. I would not recommend this place until their temps are consistent with "hot food".

Everything was cold. Restrooms not very clean. Seats in booths were very worn. And you sank down in them. I love chinese food but it was pretty rough her

Bluffs China Buffet has an excellent buffet and also most days a cooking grill where you can select ingredients and have it cooked. Food is very good and the staff is friendly.
