My family and I use to eat here all time. It was our favorite steak house with buffet. Sadly, we will not be returning. First of all,after Ms Jean passed away they only have 1 really good waitress(brenda). We love her. She should be in charge of the place. Last time we went the food was not up to par....I... More

Typical Golden Corral. Nothing is really good other than the amount of food that some folks can put away. There is a wide variety of kinda the same taste

We frequent Golden Corrals in Raleigh, the home of Golden Corral, but I've got to say that the food tasted fresher and tastier at the Kinston Golden Corral than in Raleigh.

The buffet is way over priced. Every time I eat there I get sick. The bathrooms are very dirty also. This used to be a great restaurant but it has gradually gotten worse the last few years. I don't recommend eating there.

My family and I have gone here many times over the years...especially after church on Sunday's. The buffet is large and has a good variety. Large salad bar and dessert bar. My only complaints are the sugar free dessert selection has diminished over the past few months and the price has increased. Still a good place to go in Kinston... More

Stopped by for dinner with my family and was disgusted. Every table around us was stacked with dirty plates. Went up to the salad bar and the lettuce was brown. Bathrooms looked like it was falling apart. The list goes on, not one good word to say. GET NEW MANAGEMENT!

Stopped byon our way hm to new bern. Food nasty, buffet dirty, overpriced. We paid $1.99 for 3 kids drinks, and they were all under 6. And $12 an adult. I ate a $12 salad bc everything was dirty, then ended up n the rest room. Will never b back to this one or any golden corral n the future

Party of 7 had difficulty finding table. Wait staff of little help in securing one. Ended up pushing tables together ourselves. Waiter stopped by table only once. Salad items empty. Numerous others had difficulty getting depleted buffet items replaced. Not nearly up to standards of GCs in Wilson & Smithfield.
