there used to be a buffet on the corner of illinois and mill when I was in college. weíd get really high at the towers and walk over. are so much food
legitimately really good. the people that own it have a sit down Asian restaurant in Benton called Keyaki Sushi that is really good.
in Urbana at Five Corners.
In my defense I scored a 578/600 on my Army fitness test today, so I earned this one.
Also, this buffet is excellent. Best Iíve been to. I only come here like once a year and crush it.
