Not the best representation of a Golden Corral

We found this Golden Corral ran down and in rough condition. The bathrooms looked like they needed some help bad. Gues it is just an old place. The food was pretty good, but not great. Alot of the food is overcooked and underseasoned. Not really impressed with this location.

I don't know why I go, but each time Golden Corral delivers about the same, relatively bland fair to average food at an average price. We got there before 11:30 am. The onion rings were overbreaded and soggy, asparagus was overcooked, cauliflower and broccoli were underseasoned. Mac & cheese tasted processed. Blueberry cobbler was good. I was told the fried...

I sat here one afternoon and wrote postcards and ate a bunch of food. It's not the best food ever, but it is good, and there is so much of it! I particularly enjoy eating as much fried catfish as I wanted, although it was a little too salty.

I noticed the price for the buffet has gone up and the quality of the food has gone down. I had fried chicken that was bloody. The onion rings has so much salt in its batter it was not edible.

We normally go there as family of 5 - my husband and I and three hungry teenagers. They all like it mainly because they can have all the steak they want as much as they can eat. What I like is there are varieties of food and dessert we can all pick out. This is the place all of us... More

My boyfriend and I went to this buffet restaurant for dinner one evening and for lunch another time when we were in Austin. We enjoyed the variety of choices offered (lots of different meats and vegetables, fish, a great salad bar, a whole array of scrumptious deserts), the freshness of the foods and the different types of cuisine to choose...

I don't like all Golden Corrals but this one is awesome. Freshest salads made on the spot. Meats directly off the grill, best breakfast anywhere. So much to choose from and now they have added chocolate fountain and cotton candy!
