The lady's bathrooms smells really bad and needs a good cleaning and upgrade, the food was OK but the price was not, I been in other buffets that offer more variety and better price with cleaner bathrooms

This was our second time here. The moment we arrived in Memphis from Florida we made it our first stop, the chicken wonderful, the potatoes will make you wanna slap your mama!!
