( – Fairbury, Illinois

How I heard of this place: My sister-in-law was eager to sample the fare at the handful of restaurants in Fairbury, and we were most happy to oblige. A hop, skip and a jump away from home, we made our way to China Kitchen for their dinner buffet.

Type of cuisine: As is the case with many Chinese restaurants I have entered in my lifetime, the menu at China Kitchen is extensive, a novella of made-fresh daily items from a family kitchen.

Ambiance: Set in a store-front in downtown Fairbury, between a convenience store and another local shop, the windowed door leads into a small-ish pink space with tables on either side, as well as a set down the middle of the establishment, the buffet lining the back of the room. Escorted by a young women with a smile, we took our seats, and immediately arose to find the buffet plates!

What I ordered: Each of the three of us enjoyed the dinner buffet ($7.95 per person), which touted over thirty house-made, fresh daily selections including chow mein, fried rice, beef & broccoli, a number of chicken dishes with vegetables, as well as coconut fried shrimp. The dessert buffet included chocolate pudding, roulette cakes and canned fruit.

What I loved: The teriyaki-style chicken with vegetables and broccoli from the beef & broccoli spread. The chocolate pudding was also worth having saved room!

Why I loved it: Simple, family-run establishment with friendly people and a true community dining feel.

Cost: Low ($7.95 per all-you-can-eat dinner buffet)
