Not worth the price.

The Orpheum's buffet is pretty good. they could make a better bloody mary - but the buffet is delicious.

I'm a little worried about buffets. Guess I'll never make it in Vegas.

Is it a sign of maturity that I don't have the fervent interest in buffets that I once did?

Buffets = fatty feeds.

Anyone out of college should be ordering a reasonable amount of food off the menu.

Jeez.

Yes, because we all know that it's against the law to eat a reasonable portion off a buffet and that all menu items are automatically a perfectly healthy one.

Also, fresh fruit = fatty. Gotcha.

Yeah, you're just wrong here Ned. I've been to some pretty fancy buffets (particularly brunch buffets). I mean, I'm not surprised to see you make a broad, inaccurate, vaguely insulting claim, but it still does my heart good to point out that you're wrong (again).

This comes to mind immediately - it's fantastic. I haven't seen any fatties there either, so, knowing your delicate aesthetic sensibilities won't be offended, maybe you can take your nasty ass down there sometime and stand corrected.

When I was a kid in Nashville, Shoney's was all about the breakfast buffet. When I think about it I could just puke.

What Madison really needs to satisfy the Neds of the world is a Moonlite BBQ buffet. I stopped by there on the way to Bourbon country recently, and that place is surely the most poignant example of American all-you-can-eat buffet tragedy in existence. As a bonus, it was also fairly tasty. I'm imagining that it would go right next to the House on the Rock.
