I took the 40 minute drive to Yoders and had dinner there Saturday night. Having had some great meals there for a couple banquets, I had high expectations for the restaurant. I examined the buffet but opted for a turkey dinner. Here is my report card:
Mashed Potatoes: B
Filling: C (rather tasteless)
Turkey: B (Dark/White ratio was quite high, but it was real)
The buffet, although decent, did not particularly impress me. It looked about equivalent in variety and scope to the Old Country Buffet (which I do like).
Conclusion: If I am going to make the drive to the eastern part of the county, I will go the extra 10 minutes and eat at Shady Maple. Yoders is a good solid choice but nothing particularly unique.
