The Uncle Willy’s fried chicken is a popular favorite it comes in drumsticks only. The roast chicken comes in thigh and drumstick. The recipe has been improved. It has a lemon pepper flavour to it which is very delicious!

Chicken curry and rice. There was also shrimp! The shrimp was good but hard to peel!

The soda fountain has been moved, and the coffee and tea station has been simplified. No more dessert shelves!

Dessert

Ice cream and brownie. Soft serve ice cream station is still there.

 

PRICE:
$$ AFFORDABLE! FAIR PRICE. Over $20 per person for Dinner. Under $20 for Lunch. This price is similar to other AYCE restaurants.

QUALITY:
GOOD! The salad bar was cold, and preparation is good with lots of ingredients used. The hot food was hot. Nice Salmon dish, fried chicken, beef roast, shrimp and roast chicken.

SERVICE:
GOOD! Service was good. Fast and friendly. Good explanations. Good physical distancing of tables. Fast plate clean up. All staff wears gloves and masks.

VERDICT:
Overall, VERY SATISFIED. Uncle Willy’s is back and better than ever! A solid buffet experience for a budget friendly price. Though it is not as cheap as it was before, it is fair and cheaper than many other buffets. There is a good mix of well made items on the buffet good for the whole family.
