Last month, we shared a story about a woman that was charged double for eating too much at an all-you-can-eat restaurant.  Most people were outraged when they heard this story because everyone knows the deal – you pay a set price and you go to town. These establishments have to understand they’re going to win some and going to lose some.

Now, when I think about all-you-can-eat joints, I think of crusty mashed potatoes and dry meat, but that’s not fair. Not all buffets are created equally. Some pride themselves on serving delicious food and making sure what you're eating is always fresh. Below you’ll see buffets around the state of Minnesota. 

I wish I had the time and metabolism to try to figure out which Minnesota buffet is the best, but I don't, so I'm relying on multiple sources. I have been to the top restaurant on this list and highly recommend it to any meat-lover.
