A pretty impressive Golden Corral..large, clean, busy, and food kept appropriate to hot or cold. A nice value especially when traveling on a budget. Came here twice during my stay at this end of town.

What I like about the Golden Coral is immediate food. They do have a lot of choices. For Seniors its great Mon-Thur around 3:45 we call it sneak a steak, lol. The chili and clam chowder are good. The salad bar has a good variety. They always have either a big ham or roast beef choice cuts, Italian, Mexican, Chinesse... More

Golden Corral I having Prime Rib special this month and it is wonderful. We are seniors and get there at 3:45, pay for lunch and get dinner. There is no place around that we can get prime rib plus everything else they offer for about $16.00/2.
