Re: They Won't Be Back.
Any place that featured a buffet will probably not come back. If you are a hearty eater there is good value. I've never been a fan of buffets for a couple of reasons. First of all, I'm not a big eater and in most restaurants, I'll cut and isolate what I think is more than I'll consume and take it home. Whether or not I actually eat it doesn't matter, sometimes I will and sometimes I won't..but its paid for and can toss it in the garbage if I don't get the chance. A buffet doesn't allow taking out what might be left on your plate and so any value is lost. Often times, the food is cold by the time its carried to the table so personally its no loss for me.
The other thing about buffets I don't like, is people helping themselves and some of the things I've seen, especially when children are involved. I can recall a place in Las Vegas where a kid was touching all of the plates with no parental censure. I had to walk to another station to get one. I can just imagine what gets handled especially in the dessert section.
It will be a long time before people will feel comfortable going to one again.
