I have been going to the Richfield Old Country Buffet for lunch for the past 6 months for lunch, they are always willing to make me unsalted food for me because of my diet. I've really appropriated the service this is now my goto lunch place.
Poorly Run, Bad Food.
I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone. The food is terrible and to make matters worse, the staff is rude and ill-managed. In particular, the kitchen manager Elizabeth, the kitchen manager, and David, the general manager, are downright jerks. In fact, when I had a complaint about the service, David told me he didn't even need my business. I recommend people boycott the OCB in Richfield, MN.
Self-service restaurant satisfies budget-conscious families with all-you-can-eat, all-American home-style cooking.. In Short A strip-mall mainstay throughout U.S. suburbs, this buffet-style restaurant caters to ravenous families who pay a flat per-head fee for all the comfort food they can chow down. Serving stations present everything from fried chicken to shrimp scampi, macaroni and cheese to steamed veggies. A do-it-yourself dessert bar allows diners to make their own sugary indulgence from a supply of brownies and cakes, syrupy toppings and multiple flavors of soft-serve ice cream.
Felt nasty after dinner.
UMMMM.. The soup tasted like a pasture, the employees were very friendly and did a great job!! This place has the very best in people watching next to the local fair. Please note!! It would be a very good idea to brush up on your multi cultural skills or manners prior to showing up.
Sunday brunch is great!.
Went ot OCB for Sunday brunch and was VERY surprised at how good it was. The Eggs Benedict, my personal fav., was excellent. It's a popular item so fresh ones are brought out about every 5 minutes (maybe much more often). Tried the eggs, sausage, bacon, hashbrowns, waldorf salad, milk, everything was great. For $7 (the price of just the eggs benny most places) it's the best breakfast value in town!
They must have heeded the reviews. :).
I was just there today and found the food hot and fresh. The bins full, the place was clean and busy. they didn't mix old & new food, they replaced the whole bin.
The manager was a working manager, on the move, smiling, and busing and lugging and working. They had 2 people watching, filling and cleaning the hot and cold food bins.
I think the trick to this and other buffet's is to get there at the start of the meal when the food first comes out of the kitchen, and the place is fully staffed.
Nothing fancy here, but I stuffed myself with good food - I'll be back.
