So im not sure what the deal is with this. I have hunted around Kansas City for a place I thought would be nice and still affordable if we were to pay but there really arent any options. The cheapest buffet I could find at a nice place was $35 a head. Then I considered possibly we go and just order a few different plates and people can have bits of everything but I dont know if anywhere will allow this. My family keep saying we are happy to pay for ourselves. We dont want to go somewhere and say oh yer we're paying because we can not afford a $20 meal for everyone. Is it okay to tell people that they pay for their own and how would we do this without seeming rude. I just dont know what to do right now.
