“I was very surprised.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I haven't been to a GC in years because they are usually horrible, but I had to go for a family meal, and it was awesome. Seriously, I couldn't believe how much variety was available, and the food was fresh and hot. I also LOVE the dessert bar. So many great pies, cookies, and cakes to choose from (and you can't forget the ice cream).

Anyway, the restaurant was clean, the staff were friendly, and the food was good!

“Clean, hospitable, reliable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

You can't ask for more than the standard GCexperience. The wait staff could not have been more attentive and friendly. The dessert station feels like you are at the state fair and anything is game.

“A little expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

The Golden Corral in sanford is a nice little buffet. You order a drink when you enter and then pay for the buffet. It costs about 28 dollars for 2 people. They do have a person slicing meats and they have a o.k. salad bar. The other foods surround the meat slicing station. I tried their turkey and it was way over cooked to the point of it being uneatable. On the other hand their meatloaf is very good. My wife likes the chocolate wonderfall. And they do have a few sugar free desserts. All in all, I think this resaurant is over priced.

“Too much!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2011 via mobile

This price is so overpriced it's ridiculous! Sometimes the food us good and sometimes it is overcooked. Sometimes the steak is too tough to chew next time it's great. They need more consistency in the cooking.
