And what the heck's wrong with you people? No buffet? Are you kidding me? LOL I LOVE buffet foods. I love getting a little of this and that and some of this over here all for the same price as one burger & fries. I usually end up with salad, then back for the hot stuff, then another salad and then dessert.
Well, if it's a well run buffet, I can handle it. Something like Old Country Buffet keeps the food hot and fresh. But I ate that way for soo long in the Navy, it's nice to get food cooked for you when you're paying the price.
You do have a point on the variety. My dad always orders the Chinese food for all of us, and we share in all of the dishes. Most people don't do that; they just order one dish and keep it too themselves. He spent alot of time in Chinatown in San Francisco, and they have those lazy Susan's on the table there so that you order 8 different dishes for 8 people, and everyone gets a little of each. That fits my 'cook the food for me' standard when going out, and is still like a buffet. Too bad more restaurants don't have those round-a-bouts on the table.
