DIDN'T ENJOY ANYTHING about this place, the food, the cleanliness, the atmosphere, the price. Pretty much a place for fat slobs to overeat on tasteless nasty food prepared by a bunch of people who don't care. It reminded me of a free buffet at a...More

I was in this restaurant once. It's pretty much similar to all other of the same brand. Good choice of plates, excellent grill. Buffet layout is confused.
