Food tastes good, pretty good variety. Excellent price. Quality can be iffy, especially when it's not real busy. Takeout option is by the pound, can't beat it for the variety. Waitstaff is very friendly but is very hit-or-miss with their attention to drink refills and plate removal. Do NOT recommend using the restroom facilities. Kids LOVE this place, request it... More

Buffet, not hot food. The place is in fairly good shape. Not much choice around. Not sure if I would go back.

In my home town, we have pretty crummy Chinese food buffets, so it was a really pleasant surprise when I walked into Family Buffet for the first time. I have been to Junction City about 5 times and never stopped in here. I am definitely kicking myself for that mistake now! The buffet is massive and offers a ton of... More

They were very freindly and we were quite surprized to see such a large assortment of dishes. It was very tasty and we enjoyed our dinner.

Don't do it. We saw cockroaches and flys. Food looked old and reheated a ton. We didn't want to risk getting sick so we booked it as fast as we could.

We stopped at this place last week on the way home. I had eaten where about a year after they built the place and remembered it as a buffet that had a lot of different choices. Not anymore. Its just plain old Chinese and not very good at that. The place is dirty and worn down. It seems there are... More

My co-workers and I often go to Family Buffet because there is something for everyone. For one low price you can eat until you are full and they have a great selection. The food tastes average -- it's on par with any Chinese Buffet that focuses on getting it out hot and fasts. But you can have a salad, sushi,... More

I was traveling and just did not want fast food. I was by myself and just did not know what I wanted. Some items were great, others not so much but you can pick and choose, so I took tiny amounts the first time as there is a very large selection. I was there a little after noon. The buffet... More

The name Family Buffet is misleading,it should be called lousy Chinese the food was cold the meat tough the service slow I could go on but you get the drift, I had no choice it was only place I could fine open on Christmas eve. Tomorrow I'll eat from a vending machine before I go back there.

I noticed the food was cold and didn't seem fresh. I guess you have to go during the busy part of the day in order to get warm food.
