Yes it's all you can eat but why would you want to? The food tastes like it was prepared without a care in the world. It's not quality food. I'd rather just drive through MC Donalds next time. The food was seriously that bad.

Always a broad selection to choose from. Seniors get a discount. It tastes so good, there's always a danger you'll eat too much.

Asked for senior discount, but did not get it. The food was just like any other cheap buffet. They did have a good selection of all different types of food. They should concentrate on keeping the buffet cleaned up. Probably wont return to this or any other Golden Corral.

We had a family reunion planned in a park nearby. Unfortunately the weather was super wet & rainy, so we decided to move everyone over to the Golden Corral to eat & visit. We called ahead (maybe 30-45 mins) to let them know a large group was coming, they assured us there would be space & time. Got there &... More

I drove down from Sandy to join a dozen friends and family for lunch yesterday, Thursday, October 1, 2014, at the Golden Corral in Orem. As usual, the food was good, the selections were plentiful, and the wait staff in the person of Shelby was just about right. We were only 13, but we took the south side of the... More

I like it all...It is a little spendy but its not too bad, better than chuck a rama, I don't go often because it is a long way for me to drive.

Not as good a selection as in other places.. They did not have any steaks or roast beef or ham out. Lydia,,,the waitress tried to get an answer as to when some meat would be put out...no luck. But every thing else was fresh and good tasting.

My kids love the chocolate fountain (and assorted items to dip) and cotton candy (they eat 2 or 3 each). Since we prefer water, we like the fact that the prices don't include a beverage (cheaper than their competition). They also send us free meal vouchers on our kid's birthdays - they don't even flinch when we bring all the... More
