Lionel Hutz: And what happened after you were kicked out of the all-you-can-eat restaurant Mrs. Simpson?

Marge: We...went home...

Lionel Hutz: I must remind you Mrs. Simpson, you are under oath.

Marge: We...we...drove around until 2am looking for another all-you-can-eat seafood restaurant.(starts crying)

Lionel Hutz: And after that?

Marge: (Sobs) We went fishing!

This seems like a much ado about nothing situation.

1 - Diners drink water and don't leave tip (tip is optional, you could fix that...)
2 - Owner offers "all you can eat" with no limit (you could fix that...)
3 - Owner calls patrons names and obviously needs the promotion to keep the business running

Sounds like it's not just that they eat a lot, but that they make a complete mess of the buffet as they are getting their food.


Local joint does family style round-table food. Sit at a big-ass round table (get it) that has a lazy susan in the middle. You're sitting there with up to 10 other people and they bring out dishes of food. Two or three meats, five or six vegetables. And when you're done, desert. They will bring out refills if one of the dishes is really popular and emptied out. At the same time, there is a flow to the meal. Food is brought out, when people start winding up what they're eating, they take off the food and bring out desert. It's a whole cycle.

One time I went in there with a bunch of work friends, and we hang around a bit waiting to be seated. There are two relatively slim women sitting at a table, finishing up their desert. The table gets bussed and we're seated at the table. The two women finish their desert and just sit there. Ignoring the check on the table between them. Ten minutes later we're still waiting for our food to be brought out, and the ladies are still there. Finally the manager comes over and tells them that their meal is over and no more food will be brought out for them. They biatched and moaned about how they were paying for the seat and deserved all they could eat. Manager says you had your shot the first time around. It's time to go. They finally left after screwing up our lunch and making us late back to work.

FTA: "The men would each eat five bowls of stir-fry during their regular meals at the Mongolian barbecue, which invites guests to create their own dishes from the buffet. "

Sound like one of those bars that have raw ingredients and they will cook it for you. Yeah, most people have enough respect to limit how often they use the raw bar and they tip when they do.

While I enjoy a buffet on occasion, I've had to stop going for the following reasons:

1. The sight of wheezing morbos struggling to waddle back to their table with their 9th and 10th heaping plate of food
2. Those "clever" people who, when confronted with something like beef chop suey, pick out all of the meat (and I mean all) and leave just the vegetables for the rest of us
3. People who insist on repeatedly taking the smallest amount scientifically possible (even though there's a giant serving spoon) and do it repeatedly, thus holding up the line (I once saw a blue-hair spoon 65 green peas onto her plate--one pea at a time!!!!)

I've eaten at one of these Mongolian places before, and getting just one plate of food takes close to half an hour. Even if I didn't get enough to eat, I'm not waiting around to eat another bowl. They have a ton of patience to wait that long for their food, wow.

Reminds me of the "all-you-can-eat" (tabehoudai) back in Japan. All you can eat, for two hours, but you still have to order, and they can take their time bringing it. I remember going to one with seven people once and ordering chicken and they seriously brought five pieces total for the seven of us.

Wait. There are people who eat less than 6 bowls of food at a Mongolian barbecue? Those bowls are tiny and the food cooks down a lot. It takes two bowls just to make a small serving on a plate. Unless you fill it up with nothing but noodles and veggies.

//If 5'9" 160lbs is fat

my favorite buffet people are the ones who act like they've never eaten crab legs or shrimp before. Ive seen them clean out the entire tray of crab legs and stack them a foot high on their plate and waddle back to their table. It s like they think the restaurant is going to run out or something.

I went to an all-you-can-eat buffet. I told the waiter "I'm not very hungry, so can I get a discount?"

OK, I stole that joke from some comedian.

Anyway, the solution is simple: All you can eat in an hour. After the hour is up, you can pay for another hour, or get the fark out.

Actually, now you can get a card that shows you had weight loss surgery (either lap-band or gastric bypass). It's a WLS card and it allows you to get discounts at buffets and restaurants because they know you won't be able to eat as much. I heard about it just this morning.

That would only work until the first person sues the restaurant for choking while stuffing their mouth with 7 dinner rolls at the 58 minute mark.

That's the wrong perspective.

Buffets make for fine peoplewatching. Where else can you see a hambeast in its native habitat?

I like the veggies at buffets - that's a good place to get a wide variety.

As for people taking tiny samples, that's why I pick a seat where I can watch people doing odd stuff like that.

An hour isn't a lot of time for people who want to eat out and talk with friends.

Maybe have a 90 minute discretionary rule. 4 hours is a ridiculous amount of time to spend at a restauraunt, could span two meals, and yes they are preventing other paying customers from using that space.
