“They do a lot of business!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

It is a buffet-the food is good but not remarkable. A lot of people come through there an the glazed expression in the eyes of the staff is probably from the sheer numbers of diners in the course of the day. The building shows the effect of so much use...it's not that old but it appears tired. The variety of food is good and from what I can see the prep and serving areas are clean. We go there only occasionally knowing that there will be a lot of people and not so nice in dress and manners. The fried chicken is very good and the vegetables are pretty tasty and my husband loves the yeast rolls so it draws us back.

“Great buffet meal if you are not expecting ambiance.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

Golden Corral is one of those chain restaurants we tend to seek out when we travel. They are near the highway and you know what to expect. There are a lot of choices and we easily find plenty that we like each time. It tends to be very busy, so it is not the place for a romantic meal obviously. Just go for the food and the choices.

This particular restaurant is not one of our "travel" restaurants but in our town so we have eaten there several times. The cashiers and servers tend to be nondescript, but I must say the last time we went they both had pleasant personalities and appeared to like what they were doing. They seem to have overbearing management, however, as there were loudspeaker announcements telling people to bus all their tables - like they need to be told?! My thought was - set the microphone down and go help out yourself.

The only negative we find is that it is so easy to go overboard and not eat sensibly, especially with the numerous dessert choices - but that is our fault I guess, right? The latest thing is a chocolate fountain to dip things into - I am not tempted by it, but there seems to be a crowd around it sometimes.

So if you are familiar with the Golden Buffet chain, this one should not disappoint.

“Uncomfortable”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012 via mobile

My family and I had excellent service... although the "micro manager" was chasing around the servers and making them cry...
The only good food came off the salad bar....
