Buffet Dinner In The Inland Empire

Not very fancy. Just cafeteria style. All American foods. Steak, sea food, chicken, pasta, salads, desserts. I had the white fish, fries and salad which was pretty good. Don't come just before closing time. The food was sitting out and not very fresh. My niece and her husband had the steak, They... read more

A wide variety of food. Chinese, American, salad bar, even steak on specific nights. Service is great.

This is where you go if you want to graze. I wouldn't classify the food as top-notch, but you're sure to find several things you like. Servers are pleasant, prices are good for what you get.

We enjoy the food at Golden Corral. Sometimes though they're a bit too crowded. I don't like standing in line forever to get a piece of steak or once waiting for them to put out more roast chicken {my favorite entry here} and then they only put out about 10 pieces--I still didn't get one. Last time we were there... More

Freshly prepared, good variety, great staff, just like their lunch and dinner seatings. Sirloin steaks exactly to order and very tasty, very tender. The egg station fixed me over easy just the way I like them. Coffee and juice are provided at no extra charge. Excelled SOS, with some really good sourdough toast for a base. The most impressive thing... More

I worked in High Desert and TV commercials made me give this place a try. Big mistake! I went at lunch and the place was crowded, dirty and out of food. The restrooms are gross and serving areas are not regularly cleaned. It seems the tourist (gamblers) buses making the run to and from Las Vegas made this a regular... More

So I'm giving this place a 3/5 because it was fairly clean and I didn't get sick. With that said, eating here is like eating at a trough though. Buffets like this seem to make customers rude because everyone tries to get the last piece of "insert food here". I don't trust the seafood and the chocolate wounderfall seems like... More

If you have been to Golden Corral - this is much like any other. The food pretty good, the service was pretty good. Like most buffets, I wish parents would supervise children more closely. The food was fresh and was refilled quickly.

I found the prices and variety of food offered here good, ALTHOUGH you want to go early. If you go during peak hours, things are pretty picked over, there are many unsupervised children running amuck...some putting their hands on food. It gets really messy..perhaps it's the cotton candy hopping the kids up ;)

If you are really looking for a one-stop place to eat this is it. A very large variety of food, all of it good, awaits you as yoou stroll along the hot food keepers full of fresh food. I found the restaurant to be clean and noted the tables were bused as the customes left. The price is very reasonable... More
