I do not know how this place passes inspection. The food is cold. I'm not sure that chicken is actually chicken. I won't eat it. They are closing the doors this summer.

This buffet was visited during the week for dinner. I found it to be clean and all of the food hot. The food on the buffet was kept filled and the staff was very friendly. Everything I tried was good.
