Help! I'd like to take my parents out to lunch this Saturday but they haven't liked any of my suggestions. I've tried taking them to more upscale places before, but they always thought they were too expensive and a waste of money. They really like buffets, 'cause they perceive them to be a good value, due to the quantity and variety of food (they are old ;)). Their favorite places to eat are Sizzler and Hometown buffet...i'd really like to take them somewhere else, preferably a non-chain restaurant. Oh, and they're not really into ethnic restaurants, except for Chinese.
I've looked into "nicer" buffets like Garden Court, but they're only open on Sunday (plus my parents might think it's too pricey). Anywhere in San Francisco, Daly City will be good, can probably go as far south as San Bruno.
