I like really good (and usually pricey) brunch buffets - with seafood, carving and omelet stations, dessert tables, salad and soup bar, variety of side dishes, breakfast dishes, etc...

We go to one every few years on a special occasion.

I love buffets! All-you-can-eat is great because you can pick and choose to sample as much as you want of each, unlike in a regular restaurant, where you might not know how big the portions are for the things on the menu or what they look like when you order.

I love a good brunch buffet, but they can be very hard to find. I haven't found one here in OKC yet. Most of the time I feel like at buffets you are sacrificing quality for quantity.
Not a bad idea. Since I can't carry a purse, I may try a paper shopping bag. I could fill that baby up, and eat for a week!

I am one of the few who does not like buffets. It's too much food to look at and I never can decide what I want. I don't like my food to touch so it means numerous trips to the buffet. That means leaving others at the table. Also, you don't know who has touched the food (I know all of you think people really use tongs but some don't) and I don't trust those sneeze guards. I just prefer my food made to order.

Here's one that I miss

Welcome to the Ark- Captain's Table

as a rule I don't much care for all you can eat buffets but I loved "the Ark"

It wasn't cheap, but the food was great

Sure they aren't the highest quality or biggest crab legs and stuff but for all-you-can-eat it ain't a bad deal.
The people go crazy over the crab legs at the buffet near me.

I like Chinese buffets that are really good. I love the varieties of chicken and veggies.

Not a huge fan of them because I don't like to see so much food...ick! I love love to dine out, but, there is no way I'm going to stuff myself with a bunch of food in an attempt to get my moneys worth
