Food was buffet, it was hot and fresh. flavor was lacking very bland. Service was fair, we never got a refill or plates removed from table. I won't be going back but it would fill you up in a pinch.

I think the buffet is average or a little below average. Off the menu lunch special are very good. Cooked fresh. Much of the buffet is cheap fillers packaged buy Sisco. Just junk. Somethings like the Jade chicken my wife loves. We have been here a few times in the past 5 yrs. this place has lost a few steps.... More

After a long days bike ride through the hill country we were making our way back to the Alamo City when hunger got the best of us. The sign to a buffet just seemed like a good place to stop and graze. The buffet was small but everything on it looked like it had just been set out. Every isle... More

On a previous visit my family said this same employee was rude to them and to other customers. Making comments under his breath that he thinks you cannot hear although he has to be pretty stupid to think that. Today he was rude again and I confronted him asking "do you have a problem with us" his answer was "do... More

It is your typical Chinese buffet and somewhat clean. However I did witness a child take food off her plate and put it back into the food bin with her bare hand. One of the workers witnessed it and didn't do a thing about it. Definitely won't visit this place again.

Jade Buffet is an average Chinese Restaurant. It is not as good as what you would get in San Antonio. But if your driving on a road trip it's a quick pit stop. It is currently the better of the two Chinese buffets in Hondo. Try to go during lunch buffet there are more people then. Don't go unless there... More

Food was cold. Soup was watered down. Crispy noodles were stale. The only thing I could recommend is the jade chicken. Everything else was not good at all. Even the sweet and sour sauce tasted funny...idk how you mess that up. I won't come back.
