Only thing worth eating was the salad bar. It surprisingly was refreshing. If that was the only thing served it would be rated better. It was the only reason for 1 star.

To be honest, I'm not a fan of buffets, but Ameristar's is probably one of the best in Kansas City. While the price is a bit steep, the selection is very good. Lots of variety, with pretty good flavor. You have your choice of Italian,...More
