Was surprised when traveling through Tifton, GA, to find the Golden Corral clean, reasonable, and the all-you-can eat buffet loaded with good foods of all kinds from fish, to vegetables, to beef, to chicken-'n'-dumplings. Will stop again anytime. You you go away hungry, it is your own fault! Try it, I think you will like it.

The food was all very good. People were friendly and for all of the food you got it was reasonable. Kind of crowded but what do you expect for a Saturday night.

Wanted a quick lunch, stopped here, it was not very clean, the food on the buffet line looked like it had been there a while, staff was not friendly. Just not a very good place to enjoy a meal... would not recommend.

Chicken was cold, fried mushrooms were soggy, meatloaf was hard. Service was horrible. Poor selection of chicken wings, even though it was "wing night". All of this for nearly $15. Will not eat here again!! Do yourself a favor and go one block over to the Ole Times Country Buffet. Save a few dollars and the food and selection is... More

Overall a bad experience; Sticky tables and chairs, with a film that you can see as you sit down. Most of the food on the buffet was dry (you know that hard dry look that rice gets when it has sit for a while). The floor was slippery, almost greasy feeling. The bathrooms smelled like someone had died in there.... More

Salad was brown and wilty, was slimy. Apple slices were terribly brown. Dessert corner not replenished. If you are looking for quality, skip over this place. Locals definitely do not treat travelers friendly. They stared and were rude. My son said "bless you" to someone who sneezed and she looked at him like he had three heads. So much for... More

The five star rating is because this place so exceeded our expectations. The food is well prepared, appetizing to the eye, and SO NOT the typical steam table big food. There is loads of variety. I absolutely love fried whole catfish, and these did not disappoint. Even though you get your own food, the servers are attentive with beverage refills,... More

The food is good and the price is even better. I have never been to a Golden Corral and just tried it for the first time. My family and I enjoyed it and will go back.
