it's a little bit of a drive, but worth it. Also check out 7 Stars Pepper in the ID.
this was American style Chinese food. it was still good, but not like an authentic place. those are some of my favorite places.
But I've finally come to appreciate Chinese food.
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.
