Went to the prime rib buffet. The prime rib was quite good, and the salad fixings were fresh, but nothing else was worth the money. The desserts tasted stale, pizza was not even warm, and dinner rolls were not fresh either.

Change of venue to Events Center means reduced buffet selections and lukewarm food. New buffet space is supposed to be ready on March 29. In the meantime, the favorite entrees disappeared, as well as the prepared salads. Chafing dishes cannot keep the food warm enough...More

I've have written a couple of reviews on the Boomtown buffet and they weren't very good. Now it is close to four stars just not in a variety to do that. The food has improved I don't know if they've got a new chef maybe...More
