  • OUT to LUNCH: Big-city offerings not as vast as China New Buffet

    “I drove 12,000 miles to enjoy my fourth time to eat at China New Buffet in Rockwood,” Bobbi Abbey said.

    “I’ve been so impressed with the food and prices.”

    Bobbi grew up in Rockwood and now lives in Wisconsin.

    On our recent “Out to Lunch” adventure, she and her parents, Bob and Jonell Cundiff of Rockwood, were seated in a booth across the aisle from my wife, Carol and me.

    Bob is a retired salesman, who called on East Tennessee auto body shops for their replacement parts needs.
