One of my favorite restaurants (to date) is a little hole-in-the-wall buffet located in a strip mall near my old alma mater. The name, China Buffet, is literally self-explanatory. Don’t get me wrong, it’s no dive. It is spacious with engraved wood paneling, dark green carpets, and mood lighting. But for just $10.95, I get five long buffet tables of steaming Chinese, Home-style American, and a salad and dessert bar including self-serve soft serve. Yum! Pretty sweet deal, and that’s probably why my freshman fifteen caught on so quickly.
