This particular location outdid themselves on Monday, November 17, for something new. Instead of serving veterans on its actual holiday of November 11th from 5 to 9 p.m., Golden Corral in Springfield, Illinois served all day on the 17th. They even provided a few new items on the buffet; my particular favorite was a strawberry shooter on the dessert bar.... More

If you walk away from the Golden Corral hungry, you did something wrong! Granted, much of the food is on the salty side, but there was a wide variety of food that was available and so there were some healthier selections. Meat had some gristle but chops and bourbon chicken were big hits.

In an attempt to get out of fowl weather in Springfield, Illinois last Friday, I decided to pull into Golden Corral for an enjoyable-yet-long meal and wait out some massive storms set to hit later that afternoon. I pulled the door open and it... More

I was a little apprehensive when the group we were travelling with had decided this was the stop on our way from St. Louis to Chicago after a Cubs game. However I was very impressed with the taste and cleanliness of this buffet. I have been to the Golden Corral in Aurora, IL and was very disappointed, but this one... More

We dined here with friends from Belgium who have their opinion in what represents GOOD food. Our friends were able to easily satisfy their tastes and of course we were as well. I would recommend this place to anyone, especially to anyone that is hungry and desires value.

They had an amazing Memorial Day Brunch on the actual holiday that was complete with complimentary juice and coffee. The best thing on the buffet at that point was the French Toast. With a variety of nothing but fresh fruits and dairy products, they kept people hopping and happy with multiple return trips. I don't think they can outdo themselves... More
