We've always enjoyed the buffet at Cactus Pete's but they renovated about a year or so ago and it seems the atmosphere has totally changed. No more semi circular booths, no more keno runners, it seems more like a glorified cafeteria. The cost is now close to $20.00 per person weekdays. Granted, there are a lot of offerings, but I...

The remodel looks great. The food was awful. Many things were dried out, they had been sitting out to long. The chicken was rubbery. The only thing that was good was the Gelato. Service was just ok. We will go some where else next time. And skip the buffet.

Do yourself a favor and do a "recon" on the food before paying the $20 per person charge. You might change your mind. We were a bit unlucky since we ate at The Buffet on a Wednesday which was "shrimp night." I'm not a big fan of pond-raised shrimp from the far east and I suspect that most, if not... More

They were having several days of shrimp selections and if you like shrimp you could be in heaven. I think they actually had too many shrimp choices because I'm the only one in my family who loves shrimp so they were disappointed and there weren't too many other things to pick. Even the pizza was shrimp. We've been going to... More
