Decent place

As far as a Golden Coral goes, it's a decent place Friendly server and good food selection. It's not anything fancy for sure but you're in the wrong place if you're looking for that. It's honest regular food and they're pretty good at it. No complaints.

My wife and I visited this place for breakfast. We ordered to breakfast buffets with water, because we could get juice off the breakfast bar. The total came up to almost $20. I could not believe it was that expensive.....and they did not have steak on the bar either. The bar was composed of a bunch of pastries and bread... More

If you are going to claim on National TV you are the best buffet you better be good. This location has lousy food and the buffet area was equally as nasty. The food literally looked like it had been sitting there all day. Even the rolls were cold, some areas weren't refilled so the serving trays had dried up food... More

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 Corral. I... 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
