buffet Reviewed by: Ed The staff here are friendly. Food is good value for the price. It is not the best compared to other places but the shrimp, pork ribs and fried rice are worth the trip.
Asia Buffet Reviewed by: Edward From Fontana I like the dinner menu with the salted spicy shrimp with shell, the deep fried crab, baked mussels. The fried rice is tasty. Good value for the money.

History

Barstow started getting settled in the late 1840s in the Mormon Corridor. Barstow's roots also lie in the rich mining history of the Mojave Desert. Because of the miners coming to Calico and Daggett following the discovery of Silver in the 1860s, railroads were constructed to transport goods and people.

The Southern Pacific built a line from Mojave, California through Barstow to Needles in 1883. In 1884, by way of a compromise, ownership of the line from Needles to Mojave was transferred to the Santa Fe.

Railroad magnate William Barstow Strong who owned the Santa Fe is the eponym of the city.

Barstow's history was further cemented with the paving of the major highways through the city. Much of Barstow's economy depends on transportation.

Some early Barstow names were Camp Sugarloaf, Grapevine, and Waterman Junction.
