The buffet is wonderful and has sushi and hibachi options. The sushi is my favorite thing here with the sauteed mushrooms coming in second. The price is very reasonable.

As another reviewer said, it's clean, quick, and cheap when on the road. There are plenty of the usual as well as unusual choices. Everyone from vegetarians to omnivores can easily eat here, including LCHF/keto. The price was fair and the service fast.

Google the restaurant and it should tell you, or call them. I ate there and it was not over the weekend, so no idea.

I think lunch is around eight dollars...dinner closer to twelve. It gets strong mixed reviews-- folks love it or hate it. I found the food just mediocre. The service was poor. If you go, I hope the experience is wonderful... More
