Old Country Buffet

You might feel as if you've landed in Mayberry RFD. Kids pay according to age, and each location features at least two soups a day; 20 salad toppings; a half-dozen hot entrée choices, an dessert bar and an ice-cream machine. How many items are there altogether? "I never counted -- probably 100," says one honest employee with a shrug. "But the menu literally changes from lunch to dinner."
