As the name implies, yeah, it's a big place. There is a lot of food. Is it crowded? Yes. Is is loud? Very! Are their average customers folks who haven"t eaten in several weeks? Must be! The food is average in taste, just above a can of Chung King off the supermarket shelf. There are other buffets and oriental restaurants... More

We used to visit Jumbo's all the time. The last couple of times we visited the service was bad and the food was not that great. Food the food being less than average it was very expensive as well.

I've been coming to this place since 2009 and my last visit was 2 days ago. We got there around 8 p.m. on a Monday night and there were the average selections. I'm not sure why they keep the crab legs soaked in warm water but it keeps the crab legs soggy and hard to crack open. The sweet and... More

The buffet has a large selection and they advertise the crab legs which is what we went for..if that is what you are looking for forget it. They never replaced the empty bin the one time that they did replace them if you were not right there you missed them. This is not the first time we experienced the infrquent... More

They have lots of choices...just not very high quality. Most food is over cooked and short on flavor. Go here if you are hungry, want to go inexpensive and not concerned with quality.

Definitely one of the best Asian buffets in the Harrisburg area, with a wide selection of good choices.

Definitely not what it used to be. Some of the food was ok like the clams,chicken and brocoli and buffalo wings. There were no crab legs and no crab for the grill. The floor was filthy and there are rips in every booth seat. I thought it would be like the one in Michigan. Definitely gone down hill from the... More
