From endless buffets to bottomless salad bowls, fill your belly without emptying your wallet.


Originating in 16th Century France, buffet dining has stood the test of time and continues to be a popular choice for many restaurant customers. By definition, a buffet is a meal where guests serve themselves from a variety of dishes set out on a table or side board. Today there are many restaurant concepts centered around a buffet theme. Buffets are also served on special occasions or as restaurant promotions. And restaurants who offer catering services use buffets as an efficient way to feed a large number of guests.

Just as the name implies, this type of buffet offers guests the most bang for their buck. Typically, customers pay one price and serve themselves from different stations, ranging from hot items, a salad bar and dessert station. It also makes us feel like we’re getting a good deal, like kings and queens, able to summon more food upon command, as much as we want. And while we might be paying for it later, it makes us feel pretty powerful in the moment.
