As a foodie I should stay away from ALL YOU CAN EAT .. But in the case of Golden Corral, with fresh salad bar, chicken strips, fresh cocktail shrimp and sugar free deserts one can eat healthy. For sure the rush hour times should be avoided, this is when people sneak in before dinner time price hike and then eat... More

Food stations dirty, old stained plates, smelly carpets and flies everywhere. Buffets are not my families first chose, but it was close to the movies and wanted soothing quiz to eat. The overall experience was bad, the place smelled humid, plates looked old and stained. Food didn't look appetizing and there were some flies by the food stations.

Was visiting from Mississippi went to eat with daughter and son in law. A waitress from different area (not our waitress ) came to our table asking for receipt she said with an authoritative voice I need to check if you paid for all the people and drinks at your table. Embarrassed us in front of other customers. Her attitude... More

Winter Texas HQ in the spring time from about 4pm to 6pm. The quality of this place has really gone down over the years. The selection of food options is not as good as the other Golden Corrals in Brownsville or McAllen. At a little over 11 dollars a person, a family of 4 would do better going somewhere else.... More

We love the variety that they always have and everything here in the Harlingen Restaurant is so clean and nice. The staff is friendly. We love their healthy selections and have our favorites like the dressing and rolls and chicken and the fountains!

First of all, the place is dirty. Terribly dirty. Little to no food on the buffet. They can't keep it stocked. I took a bite of my ice cream and there was some green crap all over the spoon. I didn't see it and the rest is self explanatory. I threw up all night. Will never be able to step... More

I was very disappointed. It is a buffet gone wild. Nothing done very well. Price is high for the quality of food that you get. Will not go back!

Very little food available in trays and what was there was old and cold. Service area filthy, there was even a whole piece of pizza laying face down on carpet. There were numerous tables covered in dirty dishes waiting to be cleared. Even my 2 children commented on the quality of their food which is crazy because they eat everything.... More

Don't like buffets, so this place was not one of my favorites. Just like most buffets the food was ok. I don't like food that is prepackaged and thats the feel and taste I got. If you like hometown resturants, then you'll ike this one.

Golden Corral is usually a fairly good buffet style restaurant, but my experiences with this one has been anything but good. The food had been sitting in the trays all day, apparently, and when we went for dinner everything we tried was dried out. I'd eat at Golden Corral again, but not at this one. You won't either if you... More
