This buffet use to be a very good buffet but has significantly gone down hill in the last 2 years. The cleanliness of the place is horrible. I picked up the plates at the buffet only to have 2 of them stick together and the booth we were

King Buffet is a Pottstown favorite. It is usually pretty busy. They have just recently expanded. The food has stayed the same at the buffet, but the inside is nicer. They have also added a sushi table. I was disappointed when they got rid of the soft serve machine, though. You can get a very good deal on the take-out buffet. A whole lunch for under five dollars.

I will not deny that this restaurant has a HUGE selection of food and the buffet is at a very reasonable cost, HOWEVER, the past 3 times we have visited, we have been given 2 high chairs that are COVERED in a sticky film- literally everywhere-the entire wood frame around my child, the seatbelt is encrusted and sticky- and never fail, one of the seatbelts is always missing one half of the plastic clip to clip them in.

They do not have kid friendly plates and silverware, so I can't let my child hold a plate at the buffet for fear that they may drop and break it. I can't hold their hand AND their plate AND dish out the food and I can't leave my child back at the table in the front of the restaurant where they seat us and walk all the way back to the buffet, so our family has to take turns eating/taking the trip back. The drinks are given to them in tall adult glasses with flimsy plastic lids so the girls have to pick the cup up and put it on their lap in order to reach the straw- potentially disastrous (If you've ever had to clean 16 oz of spilled milk out of your 2 year old's lap while they scream in front of 30 other patrons and still continue dinnertime for the rest of the family)

For a special treat, we let our girls hold their ice cream bowl under the machine and catch their own ice-cream with our help. We were pulling on the chocolate lever and an alarm was sounding. A server came from behind us- mom, dad and 2 toddlers-and scolded us "The vanilla is not working" and reached between us in a way that made me have to put down my child and move a few steps away (so she all but PUSHED us out of her way) so she could fix the vanilla. My second child decided to then pull from the vanilla when it was fixed which, we found out when we returned to the table, was spoiling.

To top our experience off, the rug at the front door was old and torn, and my foot slipped perfectly into its hole, causing me to trip out the door, child in hand.

Pros: Ambience, food selection, ample parking, low key servers

Cons: NOT kid friendly (no crayons, no kids' cups), low budget ingredients in secondary menu
