Totally the most overrated "LA experience." Here's why: buffet features super-long lines, crowded little picnic chairs at the family-style tables (most tables aren't private), they practically shut down the buffet once the music starts, not giving you much time to really enjoy your food unless you go really early. The 40 dollars must be strictly for the concert, because the food is NOT on that level, and any alchohol must be paid separately for 10 bucks all you can drink. The gospel musicians encourage the crowd to basically stop eating so you can wave and clap and sing and dance, which is great, if you are there to praise the Lord, but not if you didn't get a chance to eat or drink your money's worth. I'm not a devout Christian or nothing, but there's also something slightly weird (in a bad way) about mixing mimosas and buffet-style eating with songs of spirituality, deep emotion, and praise. Real conflict of interest vibes for me. My advice is go see a gospel concert somewhere more comfortable after eating a really nice buffet elsewhere. Or go to a Baptist church or something.
Pros: Quality music
Cons: Food and buffet setup not great
