Peking was the best chinese restaurant at one time. The last time I ate there it really sucked.

No they use cats at Jumbo Buffet. It smells like cat piss in there.

Buffets are gross. Peking was one of the places (along with Ryan's and Old Country Store) that taught me that. I'm glad to be buffet-free!
I did see two waitresses get into a very violent fight (complete with punches and hardcore hair pulling) in Peking one time. That was back when the old lady owned and ran the place. She threw both of them out the front door, screaming the whole time. It was sort of funny -- but we didn't get refills the whole time we were there since one of the exiled waitresses was ours.

My husband called it "pu-king". There aren't any good Chinese buffets in Jackson anymore.

That's when it was really good. It was small and had good service.

That was back when Jackson had three really, really good Chinese places: Peking, Siam Room, and Asia Garden. The only one left is Asia Garden, and the last time I ate there, it was awful.

My family owned Peking back when it was on carriage house and then we built the one on vann and moved there. We sold Peking about two years ago. The people who we sold it to changed a lot of stuff and ,according to others, "made it to where it wasn't as good." They didn't have enough business to stay open.

It used to be my favorite Chinese place years ago. You are right. Things went down hill. Taste was lost. Prices were raised. Really sad.
