I went to the Golden Corral with my mother today. We didn't have to wait very long to get a seat, which was nice. The waitress walked by us several times, but only stopped to check on a us a couple of times. The appearance of the place was very nice, and the menu was certainly complete.
I'm half-and-half when it comes to the food. The mini-burgers that were served were AMAZING (even the bread!)! And generally, when steak is served (it wasn't there in the morning) I just have to get it, because one does not simply go to Golden Corral without getting the best thing there, which is the steak, usually. There was BBQ chicken, which was also pretty amazing.
However, the 'Sweet and Sour pork' meat was tough and tasteless. Not very appetizing. The green bean casserole was terrible. Worst green beans I've had in my life. They were canned (terrible things, canned green beans), and whatever the sauce on them was, it just made it worse.
I tried one of the rolls, it was quite good, but it seemed just a bit dry, so I would use their fake butter (margarine), and it was fixed.
Lastly, I tried a mini-pudding-pie. I admit, it did taste like from-a-box pudding, but at least it was good. And I don't know if the whipped cream on top of it was their own, but it was good (same with the crust).
Overall I think the experience was nice, but the food could have been better (and they shouldn't use canned vegetables/etc anymore!)
