Farmer’s Pick Is An All-You-Can-Eat Buffet In Iowa That’s Full Of Southern Flavor

Iowa is reliant on their farming community for fresh produce, meats, and other food all year long. We don’t have a high tolerance for frozen food that’s been shipped from who knows where, and can quickly tell if something is truly made fresh. Perhaps that’s why so many people in the Midwest love the Farmer’s Pick at the Isle of Capri in Waterloo. Don’t be put off by the fact that this restaurant is located in a casino hotel, because everything served is sourced locally and seasonally fresh. That’s why it’s been recognized as the best buffet in Iowa!
