At 5:00Pm Friday night during Christmas shopping time and the place was empty.. Not a good sign. Salad bar run down and empty. Food was... More

This restaurant is great if you want a variety of food to choose from. There was lots of room for a bigger group and the price was very reasonable. Lots of choices for children and very kid friendly!

If you've never been to a Golden Corral, you're in for a treat. Have a little, have a lot. Either way, you're likely to find something that pleases. Food quality is good as far as buffet restaurants go, and the selection is fantastic. Buffets aren't for everybody. This is a little noisy and a big hit with families. Don't go... More

You will have variety of foods in a reasonable price. We've been going back here for that reason. Though in the last few visits, we've noticed how poor they will score for hiegine if they'll be spot-checked. Hope someone from the management is reading these feedback so they can do something about the overall cleanliness of the restaurant. It will... More

The food was cold, must have been sitting out for a long period of time. The tables are very close together which made it difficult for my grandmother to get to the table. The service was ok but didn't come around much. There were lots of little kids running around and my grandma was almost knocked over and dropped her... More

The food was cold, old and hard almost every dish we picked up was dirty. The waiter came by on a regular and was ok. The serving stations needed to be wiped down. I also don't see how you have a price for a buffet and the drink is not included.

Seems different than the ones we like to visit as we drive on I-40. Quality appears to be lacking. Service is so-so. Price is great.

Loud, crowded. the tables are too close together. traffic problems because of a terrible floor plan and layout. Smoke problems when ever they are cooking the meat. (not fun when you are allergic to smoke). While they do have a good selection to choose from, the cooking quality seemed to very largely. Usually everything was under cooked. This varied from...
