I KNEW you'd say that!Absolute favorite: Tiffin's. I don't get there every time, but as often as I can. (only the ROL package though...great value)
Yeah, 9 dragons is a hard pass for me. I've NEVER heard a good review of it and I can get Chinese (mediocre Chinese at that) on any day right here in sleepy little Salem.One and done:
It's a toss up for me between Mama Melrose's or Nine dragons.
Mama Melrose's, the food was meh and the service was even more meh.
Nine dragons, the food was meh, although the service was good.
Never done Mama's but recently l read a good review from Su-Lynn. Might give it a try someday?
I just don't do them. I like to eat smaller portions but more often and buffets are a colossal waste of money for me/us. The one I would try is the one at Artist Point with Snow White for a character meal. Maybe. Not a buffet, but the food looks okay.Not necessarily what you asked, but as for buffets, I find crystal palace to be one of the worst. Since it's a character meal, I think the foods are much more tailored to kids and the quality of the food was lacking. I'd much prefer to get good food and skip the characters, so biergarten is the best buffet (IMHO).
Yeah, I think right now that's the number one complaint. Really DVCers are now just part of the regular old herd getting upcharged and nickle and dimed to death. Sad.I've debated about buying more and renting the points, but even that is non necessarily a financially sound thing to do. Since there are SO many people who would prefer to sell their DVC (resales market is booming) or rent their points because they no longer want to come as often, the price per point for renting points is lower than it should be. Basic economics...supply vs. demand. Greater supply than demand and they keep building more resorts.
