Advice for gluttons
From a surprisingly exhaustive guide to buffet dining:
An important side note here is the time at which you choose to eat. You’ll want to make sure that there is a high volume of other diners at the buffet so that the food items are rotated often. Some would recommend getting there upon opening as the items will be freshest. This is not a bad idea but can cause some issues if they open too early. You may find items sitting awhile from 10:30am-11:30am and I surely would not suggest eating anywhere within the 2:30pm-5:00pm window. I would recommend a 12:30pm lunch start and a 5:30pm dinner start. This will guarantee the freshest items. Of course you’ll want to avoid times when the crowds are too large and items are frequently out but a buffet should be able to handle their volume of diners. I would err on the side of too many other patrons rather than lukewarm, stale food.
