It's exactly what you would expect it to be. We go when none of us can agree on what to make for dinner. They are reasonable price-wise and we can all get whatever our fancy is when we can't agree. Still it is just a massive buffet so that lowers it just a bit.

yes, I know that alot of you think..ugh.. golden corral... but.. let me tell you.. that the cashiers where you first enter the restaurant and fast and efficient and then you select your own table. Once seated you have your waitress who introduces her self and then you head to the buffet. The buffet is really quite good. First off the salad is fresh and there are many items to add to your salad, several different types of greens and all the normal toppings including a seafood salad and tuna salad. There is fresh fruit and other dry topping as sunflower seeds, craisins etc.. you get the idea.. then there is an area right now that has chinese food. I personally havent had any of that, but it looks good. There is fresh turkey now that they carve with the filling, cranberry sauce , hot apples, sweet potatoes.. it really would be less expensive to bring the family here for thanksgiving than do all the work at home.. but then there is steak and sauteed mushrooms, tacos, veggies, ,mac and cheese, pizza etc.. And naturally the dessert bar . Can you pig out and it be disgusting.. absolutely.. but with disapline you can have a nice meal that seems more healthy than the normal restaurant. It doesnt seem as its as much frozen foods than the other restaurants in that same price bracket.
What is also nice about it.. is that you arent rushed out so you can sit and linger over your coffee and dessert and talk to your friends. it really makes a nice evening..
If only we could bring our own wine... i dont know if that is allowed or not..

What can one say about The Golden Corral, except Go there Hungry, Very Hungry....This Golden Corral (as well as all others!) is a true all american buffet, packed with comfort food(s)... all you can eat from...... fried chicken, ribs,pasta,bbq,macaroni & cheese to steak, mashed potatoes & gravy, vegtables, salad bar, desert bar & much much more! While the food is not top shelf, it is more than adequate and above average, but again, it is a self serve buffet. I found this Golden Corral in Aberdeen,always to be clean and the food always fresh, as we have eaten here on a few different trips to the area. Great Family atmosphere if you are traveling with Kids. If you want quiet, this is definitely not the restaurant/buffet for you, as it always seems busy & loud! Great value for the price at this golden Corral (as well as all other locations!) Overall Rating ~ Good.

We go to the Golden Corral often. Our kids love it because they have everything they could ever ask for and not have to wait to get it. The price is very reasonable. The food is good. Only complaint is the we tend to eat too much. Chocolate fountain is fun for the kids. Steaks are great. Fried chicken is great. Salad bar is great. Its the place my kids want to go on their birthday.

Steaks were cooked to the doneness requested. Salad bar had numerous choices and was constantly replenished. Good soup selection. Seafood choices were good. Chocolate fountain was well received. Numerous choices for children. Place was kept clean.
