    Great Wall is a nice, clean, large chinese buffet with one important exception. There is a Mongolian BBQ there that is great. Most of the local's don't even know what Mongolian BBQ is, so there is never a big line, they mostly come for the regular buffet.

    Favorite Dish: Youo guessed it, the mongolian BBQ. I make it extra hot! :-)

    Great food, great staff and ambience. The restaurant is on the west side of town and has a nice patio overlooking the Wildcat Creek.

    Favorite Dish: There are too many to list! If I had to say, it would be between the #13 and #7.
