“Best Buffet in Arizona”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Very large selection of all kinds of foods. Plus many items can be cooked to order, like burgers w/o cheese, when the normal is cheese burgers, and a rare steak. Also a favorite of my grandchildren is the Chocolate Fountain and selection of Ice Creams---real Ice Cream. Table staff are super nice and accommodating. Very Important To Me: the nation chain gives free meals to veterans on Veterans day every year, and is the main sponsor of Camp Corral for disadvantaged kids of veterans. That makes them a great neighbor as well as a great place to eat.

“So much to choose from ..most everything is wonderful”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

I've never seen a bigger buffet with more choices: whole counters for just soups, another for salads, steaks cooked to order ... counter for cakes, counter for pies ..

If you try a bit and don't like, go find something you do .. no excuses to have a bad meal here. Particular example green beans with bacon; cookin' like mom used to do.

What kept it from a 5? The place was crowded yet they still had one seating area closed off. Maybe lack of staff to man?..

A large variety of great food and dessert to choose from at an affordable price. Eat as much or as little as you like and you get your moneys worth!

“Best Buffet”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

I don't usually go to buffets, but friends suggested it, so we went. I was very pleasantly surprised! Food was great...so much selection of really good food, that one would have to go there many times to try everything. It was a bit noisy and the floor wasn't very clean, but it was a very busy time.

“COLD CANNED FOOD”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

All of the food on the hot buffet was about 80 degrees. The dessert bar had more empty dishes than those with food in them. Everytime I went to the fish Grill there was no one there. The place smells like old food. You have to wait for the server to bring you beverage refills, she was too busy hitting on one of the customers to pay attention to us or clean the dirty tables in her section. The carpet was disgusting. I thought I would try Golden Corral as I had not eaten there in abput 5 years. I will stick with Old Country Buffet.
