"I started this 17 years ago. I came up with the idea for people that don't have families, or that don't want to cook and just want a place to eat," he said. "Also, alot of my employees don't have family in the area and I wanted to do something nice for them as well."

Here's what on the buffet: Adults - $19.95  Children(10&under) $9.95
