I was out shopping Saturday and on my way home at lunchtime. I was also really hungry and didn't have anything on hand for lunch. So, after a few of the chowhounds recommended this place, I decided to give this place a try.

It was so good, thanks guys.

When you walk in the door, they have a hot and cold buffet. Hot dishes are on the first cart and cold dishes are on the next cart. The dishes names are in Spanish and for the most part I couldn't understand the writing. But, they have different dishes on different days. It's layed out on the menu, but for the most part, lots of the same dishes reappear each day/night. Every dish looked very fresh and the place was spotless. Some of the dishes are white rice, chicken rice, collard greens, yucca with pork and beans, ground beef with vegetables. The cold dishes were exceptionally fresh romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cukes, their version of pico de gallo (one of my very favs), potato salad, giardeniere salad (sp?), beets and pickles.

In the back center of the room is the bbq'd meats. You bring your plate up and tell the chef what you want and he brings it down from the rotisserie and cuts it for you. A couple of different version of beef, chicken, lamb and pork. You fill up your plate and bring it to be weighed.

My lunch consisted of alot of romaine, pico, rice and bbq chicken. It cost me 6.20, minus the tip.

After I went on Saturday, I called friends and we went back on Sunday around 2pm. They added Mexican lasanga, fried fish and french fries. Again, everything was delicious. We had four dinners altogether and one beer. The cost was just over 30 dollars. Everything is weighed at 5.99 per pound.

BTW, this must be a hidden gem, because on Sunday, the place was packed.

Just wanted to give some feedback about this place. Give it a go if you love bbq, good prices and excellent food.
