My grandmother always said that if I can't say something nice, don't say it at all. I usually stick to that rule, but I will have to make a very rare exception in this case, in order to save humanity.
This place is bad. REALLY bad. Not in the James Brown sense of the word, but in the pejorative. Remember the infamous "Two Girls And A Cup" video that went viral, and many folks wanted to gouge out their eyeballs five seconds into viewing it? If Palomina's Ranch Buffet were a video, it would be that video. If Palomina's Ranch Buffet were a person, any person past or present, it would be Hitler. I have a few enemies, and I wouldn't wish this place on my worst enemy - not even if he shot my $800 bird dog right in front of me. I've never been to prison, but I imagine the chow at San Quentin would be haute cuisine compared to this dreck. Understand what I'm getting at?

I should have known something was wrong as I approached the entrance. Out of the eight people exiting, five were octogenarians - and those were the young ones. I'm not knocking old people. I love them. Hell, I wish more of the last couple of generations could be like that fine generation that saved the whole world from the Axis Powers, but let's face it, at that age, they LOVE their food bland as all get-out.

OK, enough of my colorful introduction. Let's talk about the food.
I started out with mac and cheese and fried chicken. The mac and cheese was bland and watery, which is a shame, because they use the giant elbow macaroni that I love but can't find anywhere. 'Nuff said there. The fried chicken had a greasy batter that was completely lacking in any type of seasoning, and the chicken was over fried, rendering the meat dry and chewy.

On my next run through the buffet, I had the fried catfish, which was greasy and had a flavorless batter as well. I also had some sort of odd dish made from large quarter-pound franks cut up in to 2-inch pieces, mixed with onions. I like hot dogs, so I figured, "What the hell." The franks were rubbery. They couldn't even get that right.

Then, on my last and final trip through the epicurean's hell known as Palomina's Ranch Buffet, I had beef liver and onions, a small piece of brisket, a little chili and cheese ziti bake, and one BBQ beef rib. The liver and onions were good, that I'll admit. They were fresh and had a nice strong irony taste, even more so than most liver I eat. The chili and cheese pasta bake was, however, you guessed it, watery and bland. NOTICE A THEME HERE?! The BBQ beef rib was chewy and the sauce was obviously a Sysco or Sam's house product. I'm not asking for Brothers Gold sauce, but come on. These weren't "fall off the bone" ribs like good BBQ should be, either. No, these were "pull off and/or scrape with all your might" ribs. Oh, and I also had mashed potatoes, which were obviously home-made, and that's USUALLY a good thing, but these were somewhat lumpy and had a bland taste, and the gravy was from a powered mix - no doubt about it. Here's a helpful hint for the potatoes: mash them more, add some SALT, a little more milk, and they'd be perfect. You're welcome.

Now about the brisket. I saved that gem for last. I used to sell meat. Good meat. I'm talking USDA Choice through Prime steaks, both wet-aged and dry-aged, Colorado lamb, Niman Ranch pork - you name it. I know it's a buffet, so USDA Select is probably at best what they serve, but that being said, I still have NEVER seen a "brisket" like this. I know brisket. I know what a trimmed brisket looks like. I know what one looks like with the deckle removed. I've seen all cuts of brisket. This affront to common decency was carved from a perfectly square, shallow block of something that looked like burned-beyond-recognition flan. The consistency was horrid as well. It was like a firm gelatin, yet still somewhat resembled brisket. Maybe it was a block of compressed brisket shavings - who knows? I never sold any crap like that. It was ghastly - a creation from Satan himself if I've ever seen one.

So, if you've made it to the end of my seemingly endless rant about this black hole of flavor, please, for the love of all that is decent and holy, avoid this gastronomic calamity at all costs!

This COULD very well be, and I make no exaggeration here, the worst place to eat in all Dallas/Fort Worth. Could be. I still have a few hundred to go.

This restaurant SERIOUSLY needs to be visited by the health department. I can NOT believe that Arlington city leaders would allow this place to continue operating so close to a tourist attraction. I ate here probably 10 years ago and really liked it so I brought my family after a trip to Six Flags. They must have changed owners, because this was seriously the dirtiest, most poorly run restaurant I have EVER seen. There were seriousconcerns about the cleanliness and hazards. The salad bar (if you could call it that) had only 6 items/bins to choose from, and most were nearly empty and had styrofoam plate pieces torn up inside the bins..somehow this looked as if it was done on purpose..and each bin had some form of styrofoam in it. There was a mop head..yes a dirty MOP HEAD laying on the floor in the walk way of the food line, and my daughter pointed out a piece of chicken and broccoli laying on the floor near the mop head. The bins and food areas were so messy, that you know NO ONE had been cleaning thie area at all. There were torn up used napkins laying all around the food bins, gum and napkins in the plants which were placed near the line....and this was IN FRONT of the line where you first grab your plates!. Can you imagine what the kitchen looked like? I was so appalled, I took pictures and will be reporting this to the Health Department. They had the nerve to charge $50 dollars for this slop, and we set our plates down, demanded a refund and will NEVER, ever go back. I seriously would not recommend that this restaurant stay open. The manager came to give us a refund, and asked us if there was a problem. I pointed out the MOP HEAD which was in sight of the register, and laying under the food area...and pointed out to her the napkins and horrible condition of the facility, and all she said was, "we had a busy day" ..I can not imagine WHO would eat there not to mention enough people to make it busy. C'mon Arlington...clean this place up!!

This place is really good. I eat here frequently because they have alot to choose from and the service is great. Usually I eat here for lunch once or twice a week and the food is always fresh it is defenetly worth what you pay- Lunch is only $8.00 for all you can eat, thats a good deal considering they have Ribs, Brisket, Chicken and salad.

My family and I have been here several times and I think they have improved on some of the food and specially on the service. The last time we were here was on sunday and all the food was hot and fresh and had great taste specially the Menudo and the service was excellent unlike any of the other times. The waitress was very nice, she kept our table clean and brought refills several timesl

Okay, this is really only a three star place with (mostly) three star food....BUT, I cut a place some slack when it's a 'buffet'. I don't expect the kind of service I would from a 'fine dining' establishment. Is the chicken-fried steak as good as a 'home cooking' place, or the Mexican food as good as a Mexican food restaurant? OF COURSE NOT....BUT, that having been said, I found LOTS of choices that were very well made, and got my money's worth several times over.

I've seen lots of reviews on Palamino's Ranch Buffet on this and other sites, and you should notice that some people LOVE the ribs, and some people HATE them...and they're BOTH right: You'll love some items and others, not so much. It's WELL worth the trip.

The worst food that you can expect in a resturent. I went there with my family twice, once with on the Bar-B-Q day and the other on the Saa food day.
On Bar_B_Q day the meat were like rubber and hard to chew no matter whatever you taste, chicken had no seasoning other than salt. The ribs had too much sause on then and very heard to tear......

On fish day the same thing, either it is under or over cooked.

there is lot of item to choose and there is variety but there is nothing which taste good all are so pungent.

I hate that place as well, bad smeely old carpet and it smells as it was never cleaned. This is a genuine report. At time their own ppl come and rate this with 5 star and say all kind of nonense. The real review are the one with one star.

WAAAAY below the standard of Golden Corral. If you stick to the chicken and mashed potatoes - and the monkey bread - it's not too bad. But the ribs have little meat which is gristly, enchiladas tasteless, desserts bland. The bathrooms smell worse than a port-a-potty and the whole place is dirty. I think you would get more value for your money at the McDonalds dollar menu the other side of 360.

palominas is one of the best places where you can take your family out to lunch or dinner. everyone that complains is just hard headed animals. yeah people who take coupons are the worst an the ones who complain the most. I had a wonderful celebration at their place ever employee was awsome. food is great you have about 200 items to choose from if you complain you have a problem. the price its worth every penny in my wallet.

We went to Palomono's last night and had the worst dining experience in recent memory. This restaurant bills itself as all you can eat and the only thing there that we like are their big beef ribs and thats mainly what we ate. After my girlfriend's son and I had three plates of ribs the manager came over and started telling us that since we were eating ribs only and in her opinion had not finished "all the meat" she was going to charge us for three more meals. We protested and said that the "meat" that was left was fat and burnt meat and we weren't going to eat that. She said then "you are no longer welcome to come back and that you need to leave". Being kicked out of an all you can eat buffet for eating too much!!!! That's a first. She then told us she would call the police if we didn't leave, I responded by saying go ahead and call them. What are we guily of? Overeating???

The thing is the rest of the food is terrible. It is not worth the $10.49 per person they charge. The rudeness of this manager Jasmine is beyond belief and we will never gpo back there again. This place should be avoided at all costs.

We have eaten here before a few times, but this was our first visit in about a year and a half. What a waste of money!!!! The food was terrible this time. Food must have been sitting out for hours, it was so dried out. We ate at 6 pm. The chicken fried steak was horrible, i don't know what kind of meat that is supposed to be. The rolls were hard and dried out. My sons had pizza and it was hard and dried out. The ribs were unedible. We were very disappointed with the meal and will not go back again. We were surprised because it was good before on previous visits. Don't waste your money here, it's just not worth what they charge. They even had music blarring from the kitchen the whole time. The only good thing was the waitress, she refilled several times and was very attentive. But, she can't make up for the awful food there. So, beware, the food is awful.

My family and I eat there last month. The place was very dirty the food must sat there for hours and the service was really bad. After we eat we all went to hospital with food poising. I tried to call the owner to pay for our hospital bills he was very very rude and told me to go to hell. I was told he was from Lebanon. I am in process of filling a law suit against him I hope he read this. I have a prove we eat there that night. Just before you eat there just think when you eat there who you supporting??? Most of the profit goes to enemies of USA. Not to mention the food is real bad for you and the service was equally bad.

I have eaten here several times and always enjoyed it. It does get crowded, but the food is pretty decent. Especially when you consider the price. It is a reasonable place to take your family and not go broke. I would say that you can eat dinner here for less than the price of a family going to a fast food place.

The wife and I really liked Palominas for a period of time but wow; things have really gone down hill. The chicken fried steak has degraded to battered pieces of God only know what, the taco meat has turned in to an over spiced mess of grease and cow parts. The fried chicken has been reduced to a pan full of legs and thighs. (Find a wing? good luck) The cheese is florescent yellow and is as thin as 2% milk. The thin crispy taco shells are a thing of the past. Someone is really cutting corners on quality these days. If you want to taste the way it used to be you would have to drive to Fort Worth and go to Zorro's. Chicken fried steak with steak in it, those wonderful crispy taco shells, sirloin tender and juicy, fajitas that are moist and flavorful. I just ate at Zorro's today and I am ready to go back.

The fried chicken has been reduced to a pan full of legs and thighs. (Find a wing? good luck) The cheese is florescent yellow and is as thin as 2% milk. The thin crispy taco shells are a thing of the past. Someone is really cutting corners on quality these days. If you want to taste the way it used to be you would have to drive to Fort Worth and go to Zorro's. Chicken fried steak with steak in it, those wonderful crispy taco shells, sirloin tender and juicy, fajitas that are moist and flavorful. I just ate at Zorro's today and I am ready to go back.

Over all it liked the place and enjoyed the food. It's one of the better all-you-can-eat buffets. I work a lot and is on the road most of the time, which means I don't have a whole lot of time for menus and ordering. My alternatives are buffets and this one hit the spots for all cravings. It had steak, ribs, salads, soups, pastas and lots of sweets. I didn't get any service but who cares, buffets usually means that you find your table, take your glass and plate and take care of yourself.

Crap Food. Crap Service. Dirty...don't waste your time or money! Also, it's spelled Palominas. What else can I say to use up the required number of characters?

My family and I tried this place because of someone who told us that it was a good place to eat.. They couldn't have been more wrong.. It cost more to eat there than it does at nicer restaurants.. The food was bland and had been sitting there for quite awhile.. We had to track down someone to clean our table for us because it was dirty and sticky.. Just about all of the tables looked nasty.. We ate quickly and left.. Not a place I would recommend to anyone..

This place has a great variety of food so bring a big appetite! Pleasant experiences in the past. Only bad thing is that it is very busy on the weekends, and you have to search for a clean table. Overall, good food, good value.

My husband and I went to Palominos based on a review in the Fort Worth Star Telegram.

This place was awful! Aside from being so packed you couldn't turn around, the air conditioning must have been out because the place was sweltering.

We went through the lines and saw food just being slopped from cooking pots into the serving trays with no regard about whether something was being tossed into another server.

Food was overcooked or undercooked. I was entirely disappointed in this place. In fact, after just a few bites, my husband called the manager and told him this place pretty much was disgusting. The manager led us to th cashier who promptly gave us our money back. We then went to the Bennigans right next door for a meal we could REALLY enjoy.

Palominos was extremely busy, but it just goes to show you how big the All You Can Eat craze is. People will not hesitate to pay good money for crap!

PROS: None
CONS: Far too many to list.

My husband and I took our children to eat here. My daughter started to cry she is only five years old and has autism so she can not talk very much so she can not tell us what is wrong. A customer approached my family and told us we needed to leave because our daughter was ruining everbodys meal. I spoke to the mananger to see if he could maybe talk to the other customers, and he refused. I went back to my table to try to finish my food when the other customers continued to harass us. Once again I went back to the mananger to ask if we could get a refund he said that we were there to long. It had only been about fifteen minutes.
The manager began to side with other customers and threatned to call cops on me. I do not recommend this resturant if your children cry or have other health issues.

PROS: none
CONS: rude to children

This is a great family buffet. They have a least 8 or more kinds of meat along with a variety of salads and fruits and veggies. Their is a big enough variety to suit everyone in your party's taste buds. They also have a great dessert bar and the price is pretty comparable to other all you can eat resturants.
