Typical GC, nothing exceptional, except for good, friendly service from our waitress. Perhaps I shouldn't be rating this because I generally don't eat at "troughs", but my friends wanted to go there. They do offer military and seniors' discounts.

This place made me want to move to North Carolina! All of the staff were So Nice! The cook made grilled cheese sandwiches specially for my kids and was so awesome about it. Everyone that worked there smiled and said "Hello" and "How are you?" I'd go back if I didn't live a few hundred miles away! Bonus: they serve... More

I eat at Golden Corral often wherever I find one. They all have good service but this one, their servers go above and beyond. Yvonne, Shivon, and Belinda are the standouts. Really appreciate their personalities.

Eat at this restaurant regularly. Has a wonderful salad bar and other great foods. A very warm and friendly environment. Special kudos tco Server, Chivon, for her consistent top quality and outstanding service.

Gllden Corral has upped it's game lately with a much improved emphasis on veggies and salads. Sure, all you old standbys are there...fried chicken, meat loaf, roast turkey, you name it. You can also dine on unlimited fresh veggies prepared many different ways. This restaurant is very busy so everything stays fresh and hot. The wait staff is very accomodating... More

As the holiday weekend was upon us, my family and I opted to try our local Golden Coral again, since most of the other restaurants were super busy with lines out the door.
