We got take out from there tonight.  The food was pretty darn tasty, and you get alot of food with the combination meal.  I don't see anyone but the heartiest appetite finishing off their combinations.
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

I'd give my left arm to be ambidextrous...

My family and I have eaten there several times in the last 4yrs of living here.  We went there on Wednesday night, and my 9yr old, handed me the salt shaker and asked, "Hey Mom!  What are those black things in the salt?"  I looked in there, but had to hit the salt shaker on the table, because the salt was stuck together.  I was able to get a better look, and guess what?  THEY WERE BUGS!! 
 
My husband took it up to the counter, and the owner came out to talk to him.  The owner poured all of it on the counter, and my husband clearly showed him they were bugs and told him our son almost poured that salt on his food!  The owner took the bugs and crushed them up between his fingers, and said, "That not bugs, that tea leaves!"  My husband told him, "Tea leaves, my ***, tea leaves don't have legs!  Now give me my money back! 
 
He gave us half of our bill back, and we left.  I don't think I have ever seen my husband so mad!  He didn't apologize or anything!  He just wanted to make excuses!  Needless to say, we will no longer go back there.

I wasnt there to see what you saw... But I will just say this.  I waitressed all through college, and each of the two restaurants put something in their salt shakers.  One used rice, the other used something more round and black colored.  They use it to absorb the moisture in the salt so that it doesnt stick together and stick to the top of the shaker.  I am going to google tea leaves and see if they do the same thing...

I worked at a chinese place in college and they used some type of leaves in the salt. not doubting you. If it were bugs you should have received your money back

I know what you are saying.  I have done the same thing to my salt.  But these were definately BUGS!!  I know what little black things with legs looks like, and they're not tea leaves. :)

Alot of the time the take out is from the buffet. Just like if you were to go in and get it to go...you would get it from the buffet.

What do they charge for it though, Chinda buffet was under 10 bucks for the buffet including the crab legs

Just a question,
Do they still allow smoking in there? I used to not be able to sit down and eat, because of the cigarette smoke. Unfortunately Cracker Barrel was gettigng the same way, before I left (temporarily). Waffel House..Forget about it! It really limits my choices in Missouri, being sensitive to cigarette smoke. The good news for me is there are a lot of states, moving toward no smoking in bars and restaurants, maybe Missouri is right behind them, I know St. Louis, and St. Louis County have already made the change. Will St. Robert and Waynesville be next? We'll see..
