The hubby and I had dinner here on a Sunday night. Sort of pricey but the food was great. My favorite was the chipotle shrimp and steak seasoned to perfection. I would definitely recommend anyone to stop in and give it a try.

Have always been a big fan of Golden Corral. Their menu is varied with additional items being added on a regular basis, and they are also reasonably priced (especially for seniors). The Cookeville location does a good job continually stocking their items. And the new...More

Recently while in Cookeville on a Friday, my wife and I wanted lunch. We wanted Chik-fil-a, but it was way too crowded and no parking. So, we crossed the road to Cheddar's, but again, there was a waiting list. So, we headed to Golden Corral....More
