This place was horrible. Went to dinner buffet and paid like 14 dollars per person. It's the worst place to eat dinner at. Nothing on the buffet line and place was extremely dirty. The staff is not friendly and service sinks. No management around to complain too. I would not recommended this place to anyone.

Seafood buffet out at 4 pm. Delicious fish tacos, breaded shrimp and popcorn shrimp to eat. Enjoyed steak, too. Got there at 3:45 and ate salad first. Then enjoyed the fish and all accompaniments. We were hungry when we came and full when we left. Service kept filling our coffee without ever being adked. Tip well for good service! Well... More

A great place when pressed for time. You can get in and out when in a hurry or take your time and enjoy, if you don't mind constant activity. Great people watching. Golden Corrals chili is great and they have a wonderful salad bar.

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
