Look it's a buffet; and I've been to my share. This one has solid food that's flavored ring and the trays are always full of product. The staff is attentive and willing to refill your drink if need be.

I had dinner with my wife. The sald bar had plenty of toppings. The choice of meats were good. They had shrimp , roast beef, the different ways of prepared chicken. Fried, chopped into vegs and baked. The steaks were very good. They were not dry. Many people everywhere. The waiter did make sure our Ice teas were always filled... More

Food is not hot- barely luke warm. Steak (?) was tough. Place was filthy. Many food containers were mislabeled and some were empty. Many tables had not been bussed. Trays were sticky. The free food to kids only invites families to take too much food and waste it. Very loud inside. Will not return. Poor quality food and overpriced. Seems... More

Good selection and good staff. Prices seem a little high but might be worth it if you are hungry and make a few trips to the food. Seems always to be busy. Right off the interstate with lots of parking.

After waiting in line for a forgiveable 30 minutes on New Years Day, our large group was served to very clean, but uncomfortable seating. Service was bubbly, and somewhat slow, but understandable considering our 10 plus group size. The food was whatever you could want, with as much as you want. The food, mostly tastey, was served warm, with buffet... More

Typical Golden Corral restaurant with average quality food and very overworked staff. Waitress did her best but too many tables to work effectively. Very crowded and noisy with children.

This Golden Corral fills your appetite no matter how big or small you appetite. This place is easy on off the freeway on your way to Vegas or coming back to LA or Riverside

This place is way better than hometown buffet, I mean all you can eat steak? Among many amazing options a beautiful salad bar...but most talked about of all the dessert bar! Cookies, cakes, ice cream, and COTTON CANDY & A CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN!? The closest one to me is an hour and a half away, most definitely worth the drive.

Had the pleasure of finally eating at GC, this place did not disappoint. So many selections and variety of foods and a awesome dessert bar. Forget hometown, this is the ultimate buffet experience. $9.99 for lunch and $14.99 for dinner. Highly Recommended 😍

So how do you like hair in your salad? Do you like standing in line for ten minutes and find out you're 2 minutes past 11:00 so you have to pay lunch prices instead of breakfast prices? Do you like wet dishes? Do you like so-so food? Do you like pushy crowds? Do you like being stared at while yor... More
