Wish they offered delivery. Can't wait to dine in. Have eaten here for 3 years. They offer great prices, quality food, with fantastic portions, and they're family owned. You don't get this combination much, in America, anymore.

No greeting when you enter. You're immediately asked how many are in your party. You pay before your meal. They do not take cards as payment. They very rudely told us that it's cash only. They take your cash, no thank you of any kind....More

Nice hot buffet with consistent choices. Cashew Chicken, Beef and Peppers, Sweet-n-Sour Chicken, etc. But we especially enjoy building our own plates at the fresh buffet.

While the place is cleaner than most Chinese buffets, the temperatures on the steam table was not up to code requirements, in fact, the egg rolls were cold inside as was several other dishes I sampled. The hot & sour soup is the main redeeming...More

In pure fairness, Imperial is not pretending to be anything it is not. It's sketchy. Granted, no one in my party got food poisoning but that should not be the standard. Their lo mein station was fine if you AVOID THE MEAT. It is left...More

I love most any chinese food. This one is really good in that it has a lot of stir fried vegetable dishes. It also has the grill where you can make your own dish.
