Good service BAD FOOD

Ate here on a Saturday night at 7 p.m. The server was very friendly and attentive. That could be because there was only 5 people eating at the time. The food on the other hand was horrible! Everything was dry and or baked to the pan. The butter was even frozen. I would steer clear of this Golden... read more

Can't say too much good about any Golden Corral so that should start this one out easily. The food all tastes the same usually. The salad bar at the Kinston location is generally missing stuff and or has old brown lettuce. Stick with the wings and tea if u go there

This was a great place to walk to from the hotel. They offered a very good selection of food. We ate until we couldn't anymore. The staff were kind and attentive to our dining needs. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for somewhere to eat. You certainly get your monies worth!!!

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. I enjoyed the cinnamon rolls, pork steak, carrot cake and eggs more here than in Raleigh. It was a pleasant surprise. Most of the food was freshly stocked and... More

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
