The buffet isn't the greatest. I'd say you have a better bet of ordering off the menu. Salad bar wasn't my favorite either. Food was okay. I wouldn't rave about it or anything. Nice outside seating area tho

I ate there thinking that it may be a list treasure but I should have known better than to eat at a gas station restaurant. Yuck! The food was terrible!
