Food appears to be fresh. Employees are constantly refreshing the buffet. The lines do get a little crowded during peak times. You should consider eating early in the day. Their omelets on the breakfast bar are excellent.

All you can eat steak! Need I say more? Great variety. I definitely ate my money's worth in steak and shrimp alone. I will continue to eat here as often as I can. Fair price for all you can eat.

Stopped here about 2:30 for a late lunch, early dinner on a Friday afternoon. Clarisa was assigned to our table and was friendly and attentive. Food was tasty (better than the Peoria one) and there was a good variety.

Ribs, steak, chicken, shrimp, fish and all the usual proteins available. What a great selection of American, Asian and Mexican dishes. The chefs sure do a great job of ensuring that food is fresh and not left in warmers too long that food becomes over cooked. Vegetables still had their "snap"—very difficult to maintain on a buffet line. The thing... More

On our recent ministry sabbatical to Branson, MO we made a lunch stop before heading to our final destination. Having just stopped at a local health food store (Mamma Jeans) for groceries we put into our Google GPS navigation tool for Golden Corral one of our favorite eateries. Great news we found one! Can we say it was truly a... More
