“Very good buffet....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Never thought that I'd weigh in on the food at a buffet like Golden Corral but after we've taken our out of town college-age kids several times I have to admit that the food at *this* Golden Corral is quite good. Usually my stomach rolls when someone mentions Golden Coraal but the food here is quite good. The food out in the serving trays isn't too much so they're always rotating fresh product onto the buffet. Some places you see a huge tray of something that you know has been sitting out for (sometimes) hours. This GC seems to put smaller amounts out so they food is fresh and isn't getting tough and crusty.

Tried numerous options from Chinese pork, meatloaf, Au gratin potatoes, ribs, fried chicken, soup, etc and everyone was quite pleased. The wait staff was great-we never had to ask for a refill of any drinks and as soon as someone's drink was less than 1/3 full the server was over with a fresh glass.

Yes-I'd recommend the Golden Corral on West Colonial....

“Great food and selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The restaurant was clean with an excellent selection of all
kinds of food. The staff was efficient and helpful. The value for the price is incredible. I have never been disappointed by a Golden Corral, and always check hotel coupon books. There's normally a coupon for it anywhere you go.
