Enjoyable Experience

My first time visit was good but I believe more visits will be needed to evaluate it thoroughly. Our visit was a weeknight at 5 PM. It was not crowded and the overall visit was good. There was so much food I was unable to experience many items. The seafood was my main selection but wish I would... read more

Friendly, good food, clean, good location, better than most other Golden Corral 's I have eaten at. They have a good variety to choose from

While I do believe Golden Corral is one of the most expensive dining options for me regarding money I spend versus how much I actually eat, we do go there from time to time when we're all craving something different. The food is acceptable for what it is, and I try not to look to hard at the cleanliness. It's... More

This is a fast track buffet type restaurant and is well patronised however the amount of people who visit it put a strain on the waitress staff, tables took some time to be set up after people had departed and the time to get your drinks left a lot to be desired. Steak nights mean you are going to have... More

This is a buffet style eatery with plenty to choose from. In comparison to other Golden Corrals around Texas this is a larger building with plenty of seating and divided rooms (there are many different rooms with tables and chairs to choose from). The food is normally fresh tasting and hot, many different items to choose from. If you come... More

Watch out for the guacamole ranch dressing they put jalapenos in it. I could not eat it. Their restaurant in Nacogdoches does not put them in theirs or they put less and it was delicious.

You cant beat this restaurant for delicious, fresh food. The variety is overwhelming and you will not go home hungry. I never waste room with a salad but the salad bar is par none. Freshest and most available options for a salad.

The food selection is tops and well maintained and clean. Can eat as much as you want of any item. The building is too small and crowded. It is chore to make it back to your table without someone knocking your food out of your hand. Price not bad for quality and quantity.

Wife and I visited this restaurant for dinner. Very few people in restaurant. Staff was very friendly when we arrived and paid. Once seated, our waitress only checked on us twice. One of our drinks was refilled once. Staff started picking up the food from the buffet before closing time. Children on two sides of us were screaming. However, the... More
