I really don't see how inspectors do not close this place down. I have seen gas station restrooms cleaner than the eating area here. The walls have mold and ceiling is blackened where the food is held. The ventilation has black smudges all over which makes you wonder what you are breathing in. If the front of the restaurant is supposed to be presentable and they keep it that disgusting. One could wonder what the back looks like where they cook your food. Not to mention that they beg and harass you to leave a tip. I will not be going back and I will make sure that everyone I know does the same.

How is this place still in business ???.. the food had extreme variances in temperature some felt cold by the time I got back to the table . I actually looked at most of the items and wondered what day it had been made or maybe if it had been bought as leftovers from another rest it was old cold and awful I have never left a buffet hungry before it was absolutely dangerous and gross , MY 28 year old son had severe stomach problems about 32 hours later ,, Also the waitress added 11 dollars onto the bill "by mistake " I bet they do this to everyone I posted about this and others said the same thing,, this place should be shut down before they kill someone with the old ,badly heated ,reheated and not good tasting food I have never ever in my life put a complaint in about any one or anything but in this case I do believe this place should be shut down and I cannot believe with all the warning and bad violations they have had that they are allowed to remain in business and risk the lives of people whose bodies will not be able to tolerate what I know is in that food. I do not understand how the health dept has not shut them down look here for all the violations check health dept regarding temp of food violations please
