    LOL my son got kicked out of an all you can eat buffet once. Him and the rest of the high school football team stopped at one to eat after an all day football camp. 25 hungry football players ate more food then this place ever counted on. After about 30 minutes the Manager came an told them to leave to more trips to the Buffet

    The local Chinese restaurant here has signs posted requesting patrons not waste food from the buffet and warning that violators may be asked to leave and/or banned from the restaurant.

    It is all you can EAT!!!!!

    It sounds to me like these people were just wasting food. I mean putting things on their plates, not eating it, throwing it away and then getting more of the same from the buffett.I think they should have been asked to leave.

    I've been to the Dragon House-hehe, it's my brush with fame! Oh wait no, I did meet the Channel 8 weather man once.

    How hard is it to just take a little of something if you aren't sure you'll like it-you can always go back for more. They'd never make it into the clean plate club.

    I always push my food around on my plate, or put some leftover something gross that I am not going to eat on my kid's plate so it doesn't look like I am wasting it. That's lame, I know.

    But - the sign says "Waste food will be charge extra".

    Don't really want to be a bleeding heart here, but:
    I have a son-in-law that weighs in at about 130 lb
    that would make one proud to be paying for his buffet. I also know a couple that "loads" there plates at the same buffet and 5 min. later claim it is cold and repeat the same performance, not to mention putting a few "egg rolls" in a purse for future use.
    I find no fault with this owner throwing out people like this.
    I do find fault with the sports team eating more than the owner cares to see eaten. This is where you bite your tongue and take the loss.
    I, for one, am a person that tries to forsake buffets. Being another 135 lb person, I work hard to get my moneys worth, and ruin the rest of my day. LOL? Not funny if you have done it!

    I don't recall this ever being an issue at any buffet I have gone too.


    I don't really fault the owners here either.
    Really IMO if they had tipped the waitresses WELL this would never have come about!

    This is actually something that has always bothered me. I know a lady back in Texas who used to meet up with us at China Star (chinese buffett) and she would always let her daughter pile her plate to the point of needing side boards to contain the food. The kid never ate even half of it and would go back for seconds thirds etc.. I did mention it one time becuase it just irritated me that she would always do this and the mom pretty much told me 'it's my money i'm paying for it so don't worry about it'... just rude if you ask me. And the waitress was always looking and giving 'the evil eye' I hated going out to eat with them. (It was more or less a work thing)

    I once dated a guy who wore size 5X clothing - the reason was, the man could pack away more food than my refrigerator. I went with him to an all you could eat buffet on occassion and always wondered what the manager thought. Everything he took, though, ended up in his mouth - so I guess it was "waisted" and not wasted. :-)

    My oldest and I went out to a Buffet to "try to do some "teenage" bonding.

    I had never been there before, but he has.

    I was respectful and considerate, I tried many things, but only took a little of each one. I did leave a little bit of food...and when the waitress came to take the plates, she said "well it happens sometimes". But again it was a bit.

    Well my teenager, knew what he liked and went to town......every last bite.

    The service was good, so a "regular" tip was in order.

    Some people's children, abuse a priviledge, it gets taken away......that should have been learned by this family as children, oh I forgot, they behave like children, so no lesson learned.......yet

    I agree with the employees. Its just not right to be so wasteful... while it is all you can eat and you did pay, its all you can EAT, not all you can leave on your plate.

    I went to an all you can eat buffet last night with my daughter and thought of this thread. The food was good, we cleaned our plates (and added a little padding to our thighs, probably.)

    ...but is it okay to leave some on your plate when you bite into it and it's just nasty? We've all done that somewhere, right?
