stopped in while it was not very busy, food containers empty, spilled food on floor not cleaned, workers who would not move out of the way and offered no assistance to young children, elderly, or handicapped. food was plain and almost tasteless

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

Very good place. Very busy. It just the kids there. They need to get firm with the rules. Kids are in the way. Hands in food, hands in chocolates, just under foot. One kid ducked under my plate in my hands and dumped in on herself luckily. Then the kid tried to tell momma I did it. But the staff... More

..Haven't been to a buffet in a long time... Had quite a few in Los Angeles, but since moved to CO., haven't been to one. Made a wise choice. It was a very busy on a Saturday night. Paid our bill and walked right in. There was so much to choose from---salads, entrees, veges., potatoes, different sides, and of course,... More

I very much like the Golden Corral chain, so I know this is not a typical property. Eavesdropping on the next table a lady said, "It used to be much better than this. This is bad." All the food seemed to be a notch or several below what I expect, much of it cooked to death. Corporate needs to get... More

Nothing fancy for sure. Try to find joy or smile on a locals face. Food bland and tired. Servers looked over worked and unhappy. Food stock specifically the main dishes low. Restaurant dirty for mid-day. My advice to restaurant...clean up standing water and hide pest control traps from swinging doors to kitchen. Keep cheese fountain full of cheese. My comment... More

I feel l a little bad about this review. We do not get to Farmington all that often. In the past, we have considered this Golden Corral a little bit better than most. I almost rated it poor, but I didn't feel like I could based on past experiences. When we went this time, the food selection was good, but... More
