My husband and I enjoy the buffet and we have eaten for all three meals. The food is fresh and a big variety.

What can I say? A Golden Corral is a Golden Corral as long as it maintains company standards. The only disappointment I've ever had at the Shelby, NC Golden Corral is not finding chopped pecans on the salad bar. Been a while. My only other complaint is pretty much the same across the south: can't get many vegetables without swine.... More

16 of us arrived late evening for dinner after a softball tournament service was great food was good. They had obviously been very busy because there were a lot of dirty tables and such but they were actively cleaning them while taking care of current customers.

We had over 40 family members gather here & close out our Family reunion weekend! The salad items were fresh, the clam chowder was good. We all loved the food and the dessert was Devine. The kids had ice cream, chocolate fountain, gummi Bears, carrot cake, cotton candy etc.

Went there with a group after graduation, the food was nothing to brag about. Even though there was LOTS to choose from, nothing I got made an impression. The salad was good, but the main dishes were sort of plain. For the price you pay, it should be Delicious!!

What a terrific variety of Chinese, Mexican, Italian, and American food. Whether you are looking for a plethera of choices at a great salad bar , excellent soups, southern foods, and Best Ever pot roast, you need to discipline yourself not to show up daily!

I love GC everytime we go there. I like that they had Prime Rid but I wish they would bring back the All Day Everyday Breakfast. Just a side note adults are $13.99 now for dinner and Sunday.
