All you can eat eateries.

Moved this myself - I forgot there's a food section!

Taybarns - all you can eat chain. Anyone been to one of these?
Just a (ahem) recipe for gluttony?
Not sure I'd get my money's worth to be honest, and I've never been a fan of eating for eating's sake. Might be fun now and again though I guess.
Why isn't there a sarcasm font?

I've been to an occasional Indian or Chinese buffet.  What I like about these is that you can have as many starters as you like!
Standing in the shadows, hiding from the light
Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life
All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

I like the variety mainly, the fact that you can eat a little bit of anything. It's a good way to try dishes you wouldn't try and can be a good way for kids to try new things to, as it's all included in the price, you don't feel you've wasted money on  single dish they/you didn't like.

For me, not a huge eater, they are a waste of money but for someone like Lee who goes into the double figures with the amount of plates he has it's a value for money.

It's the relaxed, informality of that style of dining that I think appeals to people more than just the chance to pig out.
