What food joint do you think serves the worst food in Kingsport? I say it's O'Charley's.

The Chinese buffet in that plaza on stone drive before u hit the main intersection by Kroger. Beautiful place but they leave there trays empty or scoop the old stuff to the middle. Sushi was basically empty the whole time I was there and they had 2 crab legs that were left in the tray that were never refilled and the cold shrimp had been out way to long and were mushy. The place wasn't packed but was busy enough at 6 pm to refill trays. Total waste of money. Its a shame BC if they kept the food up the place would stay packed. I've tried the place a couple of times to give it a chance but I'm done. Its just beyond terrible.

If you had taken those 2 crab legs, they may have brought out some more. This is how most buffets work, they don't replenish something no one is taking.

The one next to the mall is consistently good, but there's too much competition around town for them all to thrive.

The 2 that were left were basicly non edible parts and looked as if they had been there hours. If owners can't tell when food has gone bad or been out so long its a health hazard, then its time to shut down so ppl don't get food poisoning. what's unusual about this Asian restaurant compared to others is that the food wouldn't meet health code but the place, including bathrooms was very clean!

Yes, I would have taken the two crab legs and just put them to the side...either at your table or drop them into another tray on the buffet.

I tend to stay away from seafood at buffets though. I usually get a large portion of white rice, somethimes you got to hunt it but its there and then I add some vegetables and such to it. Maybe some chicken.

Probably the worst chinese buffet I have ever been to in Kingsport is the one near the post office off of eastman road. Ordering off their menu is ok but it seems their buffet has a lot to be desired.

Cheddars, Chilis, Italian Village, and BWW are the best.

Double chili cheeseburger with a large order of fries from Pals and demand some extra ketchup for the fries.... and take it home...microwave it for about 3 and eat it on a plate with a knife and fork.

What has happened to shoneys? The food has went down, it looks like a lot of the old workers are gone, and the front looks like a flea market.

Golden Corral..I mean Golden Trough.... is NASTY. It has gone down bad. I don't care for buffets but we went about a week ago because husband wanted to. THE SMELL was gross. We went when they were changing from lunch to dinner. My daughter was standing there getting food and some little punk buffet worker said "MOVE I need to put food there". So she scooted over. He said "YOU ARE STILL RIGHT WHERE I NEED TO BE, MOVE !!". What an asshole. Like she could read his mind and knew exactly which spot he was referring to. She is a CHILD. I turned around and grabbed her to pull her out of the way he was so rude I figured he would run over her.

Previous visit about 1yr ago I bit into a piece of RAW chicken in the "bourbon street chicken". Reported to manager who seemed to be beyond stressed and he just acted annoyed.

If we want a good meal we go to Cheddars, Chili's, Olive Garden, Braden's BBQ, Cracker Barrel, and Lonestar Steakhouse in Eliz for good steaks.

Riverfront is ok -- I like some of their food, but their owner is a rude and hateful.I am not the only one who thinks this, most people that have encountered him will concur. Only go during lunch because of the reduced price.

IHOP has terrible service. We stopped eating there.

Great Taste buffet on Stone Drive is NASTY and their food looks old/not fresh at all. Won't go there anymore.
