You might be thinking of Sizzler (I think that was the price when we ate there for breakfast in August).

That doesn't include a drink, just so you know.

It was "okay". Nothing fabulous. But for $2.99, I guess what you can expect, right?

We went to Sizzler on Apoka Vineland once for breakfast. Only once. We are not a difficult to please family so when I say it was disgusting, it had to be pretty bad.

No matter how cheap bad food is, it's still bad food.

Ponderosa has a $3.99 breakfast buffet,drink not included,Golden Corral is in the $6-$7 range with drink.These are the two main buffet places in the area with plenty of locations in the area,if you pick up a guide map you can also find others,I want to try a new one that recently opened up on International Drive called Wood Grill buffet that some people on another thread said is pretty good.

Which of these would be closest to Bonnet Creek? Any other good buffets (breakfast, lunch, or dinner) close to Bonnet Creek? Any good Indian buffets down there? Thanks!

Sweet tomatoes is good for lunch or dinner ,it's located at the crossroads on Apopka Vineland by the Hotel Plaza blvd Disney entrance.Golden Corral is located south of I-4 on Apopka Vineland by Bahama Breeze,turn right at the Hotel Plaza blvd Disney entrance and after you go under I-4 turn left at Vineland ave.There are other Golden Corral locations on 192 in Kissimmee and in the International dr area,there's also a Sweet Tomatoes on International dr and Kirkman rd by Universal.

We found the sizzler to be tolerable. Nothing to write home about, but about what you would expect to get for $2.99. I would put it on par with something you could get in a college cafeteria.

The Ponderosa buffet is also decent.

I'd put the sizzler on par with Purdue's buffet I've had many a meal there myself, and it's quite similar to the buffet at my university.

Filling, adequately prepared, actually has taste and flavor, not dried out, etc.

Sweet Tomatoes is amazing. Ponderosa..meh. Can be good, can be bad. Depends on when you go. Golden Corral is alright. Great choice, especially for dinner.
