Will never eat there again. The restaurant has mice, droppings got into the food, they were notified about it, and served the food anyway.

This is by far the dirtiest Golden Corral we have ever entered. We have eaten at several others and have become so grossed out the filthy state of this restaurant. The carpets are discolored from food, the tile is slimy from food, the windows are dirty and the bathrooms are nauseating having not seen a deep cleaning in a very... More

This is the first time I'd tried a Golden Corral restaurant. It was very good food. It was definitely much better than all the Home Town Buffets that I've tried. Better than Denny's and Coco's, too.

We were in a large group and was given a little bit of a price break. The food was great as well as the selection.

The variety for a buffet wasn't that huge but there was enough of a choice. Loved the creamed spinach. Pulled pork and BBQ pork were the best. Steak was a little tough. Broccoli was crunchy despite lying in water. Desserts left a lot to be desired but the vanilla/sorbet cone was tasty. Noisy with children running everywhere. I probably would... More

The quality is gone. Have eaten there periodically over the years and the focus has gone from the customer to profits. It's always packed but always just one to two miserable or pissed off cooks at each station so overworked they can barely keep up, so the food suffers. And the servers have more tables to tend to then they... More
