Gazedibles: Don't stop

Loosen that belt. Unbutton the top button of those jeans. At these metro all-you-can-eateries, one can push the boundaries of good taste and what tastes good all at once. Mama didn’t raise no quitter!

This all-you-can-eat buffet just tastes so good! The mix of sweet and savory is intoxicating. Whether it’s curry over rice, a bowl of luscious noodles topped with tender chicken or just a plate full of fried spring rolls, Thai Kitchen always puts out more fresh food on the buffet. The menu is great for specific dishes, too.

After stops at Hibachi Pretty Good Buffet and Hibachi That’s Nice Buffet, it’s time to dig in to something a bit more intense. Diners should upgrade to Hibachi Supreme Buffet if they want an endless supply of nigiri and rolled sushi; meaty Chinese-style ribs sticky with sweet sauce; and the sizzle, chop and flip of steak, chicken and fish on the hibachi. All the Chinese buffet classics, like orange chicken and beef and broccoli, are there, too.

Attention mad food scientists: Go home. Thanks for years of dedicated work and all, but Fuze Buffet & Bar eliminated the need for that position. Now anybody can grab a table and a plate before creating never-before-imagined food combinations. All it takes to eat General Tso’s chicken tacos, sushi-covered pork chops and gelato pie cake is the will to make it happen. Or just take the family and let everybody finally have whatever kind of food they want.

Cajun King

(to the tune of “My Favorite Things”)

Fried chicken on taters and bowls of étouffée,

Blackened pork chops aplenty and gumbo with filé,

Basket after basket of catfish almondine,

This is what makes this Cajun buffet the King!

Be honest; brown paper packages tied up with string aren’t even in the running for favorite things as long as Cajun King is around.

It takes a village to raise a child, but to feed an adult, you need India Village. Most Oklahomans are not familiar enough with Indian food to have a favorite, unless you count chicken tikka masala and naan. But this northern Indian buffet is full of new dishes for diners to try, so stop in, grab a plate and find something new to love. Spice lovers will especially want to check out the vindaloos (chicken, lamb and shrimp), which pack a fiery heat.

Before writing off Cattlemen’s as just a place for a plate of lamb fries and a tasty steak, remember that this legendary Oklahoma City eatery has long served one of the best breakfasts in the metro. On the weekends, early risers and hungry diners can find succor in Cattlemen’s breakfast buffet. Nothing warms the belly like unlimited bacon, piles of biscuits with creamy gravy and heaping helpings of scrambled eggs.

Buffets are nice, but how about an option where a server keeps bringing plate after plate of food for you to eat? Look no farther than Edmond’s Sumo Japanese Steak House and its all-you-can-eat sushi. The key is customers have to ask for this option. For $25.99, diners can order from an abbreviated list of rolls and have them delivered to the table.
