I've always suspected that the corporate chefs at Izzy's and other chain buffets, purposely make there food to be perfectly just below average tasting. The customer is lured into the restaurant by advertising that depicts the food as hot and colorful, with a variety of choices to please the whole family. When they actually walk the buffet line, nothing really stands out as looking very good. The customer tries some fried chicken or a slice of pizza knowning that they can get better food almost anywhere else. For a buffet we seem to lower our standards because we think we're getting a good deal. Not really. Because the food is flavorless, one pass through the food trough is about all anyone can stomach. Even the deserts are mediocre. The brownies were inedible and the cinnamon rolls were hard around the edges. An Eat Salem insider called the Izzy's around town and here's what she found out. "I called the Izzy's on S. Commercial. The number was disconnected. Hmmmm…… You'd think they'd have a message as to the closure on there, or perhaps something on the marquee. I called Lancaster location they said they lost their lease and have no plans on relocating. Hmmmm......."
Thanks for doing the leg work. Is anyone out there going to miss this place?
