I just moved to the area from Milwaukee, where good sushi places were not hard to find. I've been pleased so far with the sushi places I have been to here. Metro Buffet, however, is the single worst dining experience of my life. The cleanliness of the place was horrifying, the food was old, stale, and in the case of the teriyaki beef, cold and congealing. The sushi was extremely old, tasted like old, tough fish. I'm just waiting to get sick. I fled the place after two plates, only to find it was ~$10.90 a person, which is plainly ridiculous. The singular redeeming factor was the extremely nice staff.

This Chinese booger bar has a wide variety on their buffet. Just don't do the thing where you select your raw meats and veggies and they stir-fry them for you. They don't have a good concept of cleanliness -- they tend to put your cooked food back on the plate your raw chicken was on. People die from that. My wife got very sick and refuses to go back.

The sushi is a joke. It would be ok if you were in some small town with no real sushi available but when there are other choices like Sushi House in town, just skip the sushi at Metro Buffet altogether.

PROS: Large selection
CONS: No concept of cleanliness in the kitchen

This is a great buffet. There is something for everyone on it. Several different types of food all at one location. I prefer the lunchtime because it is cheaper then the dinner crowd. Plenty of seating. They have seafood and steak! I think that they have a better selection of desserts on Sunday lunchtime.

this place is great for when you want chinese but cant decide exactly what you want. just come here and have a little bit of everything. they have a lot to chose from and sometimes something a little different to try,,,sushi,,, the only downfall is that they are a little on the pricey side.

I have been to many a buffet but this one has it all. Chinese, American, even breakfast anytime. No matter what you have a taste for it's there. Never had trouble being seated yet. If you dare go near the dessert bar, be very careful you're not tempted to take one of each, it would be hazardous to your health! Oh, but what a way to go!

PROS: Reasonably priced, especially with this selection.
CONS: They have sushi...yuck. not for me.

This place is GREAT! They have an array of foods from japanese, chinese, and american....and its ALL YOU CAN EAT...(very nice for a guy like me). They have everything from Sushi, to Mussels, to Ribeye! The cost for an adult dinner was $10.50 and that included all you can eat ribeye!
Check It Out!

PROS: Inexpensive, GREAT FOOD, Wide Variety.
CONS: It seems to get pretty packed on the weekends.

You can have anything from Japanese, Chinese, or American. From Rib eye to sushi, you name it. Where else can you get all delicious rib eye for all you can eat for $10!!! Great place for kids too, they have a menu with food they will enjoy at prices you will love!

PROS: Inexpensive, good food, great variety
CONS: It was packed but is that really a con? Of course it was Valentine's Day.
