Better than expected

I don't ahve high expectations for buffets restaurants - but when traveling with little ones it's a good option so they can be fed quickly. I had the meatloaf, a couple of BBQ ribs and the pot roast and it was all very good. THe salad bar is great - and when traveling I like to have fresh... read more

my visit was with family, there were plenty of other family eating at the same time. The floors were clean and so was the dishes, tables and silverware. I would recommend eating at this restaurant to my friends and family.

On a road trip around the USA this was our first experience of Golden Corral . Friendly atmosphere, excellent choice, food all well-cooked and presented, beautifully clean and well turned-out premises, and of course excellent value for money. It set a bench-mark for Golden Corral,that others in the chain didn't come near, perhaps because they were in resort towns. Our... More

The manager greeted us and treated us like royalty! The variety of food was wonderful for a large family. They had many food selections on the menu. Everything was cooked to perfection. The beautiful woman serving hamburgers fresh off of the grill had a sweet voice and was singing. I asked her if they paid her more for that because... More

My complaint isn't with the food; it was typical of Golden Corral: tasty. This is why I chose it in the first place, as it's a "good bang for the buck." However, I could not handle the extreme coldness; why why why? Management has to keep in mind that there are people like myself who cannot handle freezing temps, because... More

I have been to several Golden Corral locations. I did enjoy this particular saturday because seafood was served. The food was constantly replaced, but some of it was undercooked. I think this is an easy fix. Other than that, everything was fine, staff friendly,price normal,and facilities in appropriate order.

The food was appropriately served; that is, the hot foods were served hot, not lukewarm, the salad bar provided a great variety of fresh lettuce, vegetables, fruit and other items to make a great salad.

Stopped in for some country food. Enjoyed the variety of vegetables. I sampled several meats and really enjoyed the chicken liver and onions. Can't eat liver often but love it when cooked correctly. Good food and excellent value at $10.
