Roaches crawling up the wall next to our table. Food wasn't good either. Bad service. Don't go here if you are visiting or live in Waco

The manager was rude and didn't honor local coupons and the food was cold. Some of the entrees were not even available.

My husband and I went to Ace Buffet & Grill for dinner, we had been one other time when they first opened and were not impressed with food or service. So, we decided to give it one more try, big mistake! The evening we were there it was just before 4:00 pm, we had the buffet and steak was advertised... More

Very friendly staff and plenty of selections. On a Sunday afternoon they had steamed snow crab. I don't see too many buffets offering snow crab. Food quality is good and I did not see any unsanitary issues. Worth visiting if you want Chinese buffet.

Not sure how people are coming up with such bad reviews, but given that it's a Chinese buffet, the value proposition is phenomenal! Great variety of offerings, and mostly pretty tasty. Again, it's a Chinese buffet, so you have to consider that there will be a some kind of a hit/miss rate with everything, and I can say that about... More

Positives-A lot of variety and a good price. Many shrimp dishes. Negatives-Many of the dishes were warm at best, some even cold. Many dishes had been out too long as well, having an old taste. I would rather have 10 dishes fixed correctly and served hot than 40 choices that are mostly cold. And this was at 6:30 in the... More

The sushi and steamed veggies this place offers are a welcome change from the fast food junk most places offer. And get this-- you pay about half what lesser establishments charge! It's a win/win from every angle!

This has been renamed as the ACE buffet and grill. This is probably the least expensive chinese buffet in Waco, at 8.49 for dinner; with coupons abounding for buy one get one half price. Unfortunately my last visit there was on Christmas day with a special lunch prcie of $9.79 a premium over the dinner price, and no coupons honored.... More

I was here for lunch, the food on the buffet was fresh and hot. Lots of choices in dishes. The buffet was kept clean, neat, and restocked regularly. My only disappointment and reason I didn't give the 5th star was the shrimp in the cooked seafood delight was mealy and dry as was the meat in the seafood salad. Other... More
