Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

So no one is allowed to like more than one type of buffet?

You left out the best buffet of them all! The Breakfast Bar! Ask that and I think ou will find it is the most popular buffet around.

Only if it's a place that's been open for years and nobody has died from eating there.

Breakast, Chinese, Salad Bar, Pizza, Pasta, Mexican, Big Variety, are all good troughs to pig out at, as long as the ingredients are high quality and the food is fresh and at the proper temperature.

Indian? Please! You're kidding, right? I've tried three different ones and could not find any dish I could make myself eat more than one or two bites. It probably wasn't made improperly, but none of it tasted like FOOD to me. It was far too different. I tried almost every dish and never found anything that tasted good. Except the American BBQ they had for people like me at one place.

Places like yelp will help you out there... There are two indian places near me that offer buffets that are just incredible and very cheap. Unlimited fresh baked choice of Naan (we went with garlic and cheese), lamb vindaloo, 2 different types of samosas, chicken tikka masala, paneer kofta (fried cheese ball that was divine), tandoori chicken, paneer mutter, saag, basmati rice--and that's just the stuff I had. Good food exists out there. You just have to wade through the crap and not get discouraged when you eventually come across a bad place.

And reasonably priced so the kids get fed and get to try different things.

Missing all of the above and breakfast buffets.

I like buffets with a good selection of everything. Because sometimes I want a little bit of everything, and that's impossible/impractical when going out to eat or ordering off menu.

I went with a bunch of people to Tucanos in Boise. I was the second person to throw in the towel. The thinnest of the group was the last to stop. He just kept eating and eating and eating.

I would not recommend the place to vegetarians. While I'm sure you could get bloated on vegetarian stuff from the salad bar, the focus is on the meat they keep bringing. And bringing. And bringing.

I love buffets but I can't eat more than 1 meals worth, so it's kind of a waste of money according to anyone I've ever eaten with at a buffet.

I won't JUST eat at any one of those answers, I'll take ANY type of buffet on that list.

Buffets are the most disease and germ infested nastiness ever. Will never touch one after some of the things I have seen people do.

Bland, dried-out-but-barely-warm food, watery soup, wilted salad, and defrosted desserts... but it's all you can eat for 12 bucks.
