I had an excellent Christmas dinner at The Branding Iron Cafe. This was a traditional holiday dinner with the prime rib and turkey and all the extras they also have shrimp scampi with a nice assortment of desserts

This place rocks! The price of the Sunday brunch buffet was just $10! Although the variety of items on the buffet is limited, it has all you want. The food was GREAT. The service was AWESOME. Don't miss eating here!
