It’s little bit wired which people want to go All -You -Can-Eat Buffets , because the restaurant’s owner must stake and prepar stuffs every day .
The only good benefit for customers !!!!

Me too, me too, Alston. The pleasure for me is doubled by the simplicity of all those dishes they add on a buffet. Simple but eye-rolling delicious! I’m so hungry again!

Anja, well, well, well, you have discovered a very popular American restaurant menu niche, i.e. the all-you-can-eat buffet.

Sizzler has one of the best salad bar buffets and sometimes people have to wait for their famous fried chicken wings to come.

As much as I love going to Sizzler, some top quality Chinese Buffets are very popular too, and they serve crab legs!

Actually, a nation-wide Chinese Buffet would be a very lucrative business opportunity for a Chinese entrepreneur to invest in and they can contact me anytime since I am a “card-carrying” buffet fan!

I presume they would be smiling all the way to the bank!  Thanks for pushing this button. :)

Hi, I’m a newbie here, hello everyone! :) Well, I ate in all-you-can-eat restaurants many times (most of them were chinese restaurants), and I really liked them. Sometimes I had a weird feeling about myself, ‘cause I always ate as much as I could, while the people around me just ate normal amounts… But eating as much chinese food as you can for 5 pounds is just great! :) Anyway, hello again to everyone!
