Yukon Super Buffet

It’s not hard to find comfort in an all-you-can-eat buffet. Yukon Super Buffet offers mostly Chinese dishes, with a few Japanese and American side items. Get your grub on with seafood, crab legs, salmon, salads and fresh fruit. The Mongolian grill is fun, too; the customer chooses the ingredients, and the chef cooks it all. Try the Chinese dessert called the cream roll.
