I had been to a golden corral in Florida before so I knew what to expect. Being hearded in like cattle, no healthy options to drink but water, charged alot (but that's expected since it's a buffet). You have to go here with the intention to eat a whole bunch. Its deffinitely not for the health conscious diner. There are... More

Once again the experience was worthy of giving a formidable review. Golden Corral did something a little different this year. In past years a line forms and Veterans are allowed in to eat promptly at 5pm. This year a little after 4pm Golden Corral opened it's doors and in turn the line remained small. I must also mention that all... More

Being from Canada, I'd never heard of Golden Corral, and OMG am I glad we don't have these here !! I think I'd be 400lbs !!! During a visit to Six Flags we stayed at the Super 8 in Gurnee, and this hotel offered a discount at the Golden Corral, so we decided to check it out for breakfast. WOW.... More

I took my daughter and her friend to this Golden Corral yesterday. We left Great America theme park down the street. I thought it was time to feed them. It was right before sunset. There were long lines everywhere, Salad, entree, and dessert lines wrapped around. The food was good though. The staff worked real hard to accommodate the crowd.... More

If you are looking for an "all you can eat" dining experience with lots of noise at a not-so-cheap price - then this is your place. If you are a family looking to feed your kids who like to choose their own meals - then this is your place. If you like a variety of above average food choices -... More

You can get a well balanced meal here or eat enough greasy food to have a heart attack on the spot. The food's not terrific, but good enough & a good value for the money

I went there with my husband and 3 kids. 10, 8 and 3. Price for all of us with a drink was around 44 bucks (Labor day weekend). I thought this was very reasonable as if we eat at a sit down restaurant it is always more. No line to get in and staff were very friendly. The Buffett selection... More
