High Cost for a Buffet

Food was mediocre at best. They also charge way too much for drinks, to make up for their "low" prices. Suggestion: Bring your own drink. I will not be going back, there are other options in town with better selections and cheaper prices.

Went there with a group of 50, we were put in a meeting room-arrangements made WELL in advance. The AC was broken in that half of the restaurant. My husband and I got a refund, we declined to eat because it was so hot in the room and the buffet was dirty. We asked the "manager" in duty if we... More

This location has been in trouble with the health department many times. Because it is scary dirty. It never gets any cleaner.

This had to be the group dinner from hell! Reservations made ahead for our group of 50 to start at 4:00 PM. We had a separate room for our group. Person cleaning off tables said the A/C had been broken for several days, owner decided not to get it fixed. Temp outside was 95, temp in our room 88 degrees.... More

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.
