Rolls were almost always out and... More

We have eaten at the Golden Corral chain in various locations and by far this was our best experience. The resturant was clean, the Manager was even walking around ensuring the bars were stocked, neat, clean and customers were satisfied. I believe his name was James Tisdale and he was the type of Manager ever resturant should have. Food was... More

The food was fresh, hot and delicious. I have been to other Golden Corrals in other states but this by far was the best. Grits in the north??? Who could ask for more!

Just moved to E Moline IL from Reno NV, and family members always raved about their food. Not impressive when you walk in, but wow is the food good! Lots of choices and options, great grilled pork chops.

Sunday afternoon @1:30pm. The Golden Corral was busy. I was solo and fortunate to find a table. Did not try the salads. The meatloaf was tasty. The roast beef was somewhat dry, and the server cut a small portion. I was hungry for mashed potatoes and gravy. Could not locate any. Settled for a baked potato. Hard to mess that... More

I think this restaurant is a pretty good buffet. I would not go here for great service or great food but I felt their food was pretty good for buffet and service acceptable. The workers try hard but they are definitely short on staff.

It had been a very long time since I ate at one so I was eager to go to it. This place met my expectations for a national buffet restaurant chain. First and foremost, this place was so packed with people, so expect a wait for bigger parties. The waitress was awesome. The food was hot and fresh and they... More

You don't have to look for her cause she was quick. As friends told us that breakfast is great there too and tried out the next day but we... More
