I'm not too fond of fast food as is, but when you're on vacation, you sort of have to take what you can get. Some friends and I stopped at this place and literally, all I could taste was salt. It was disgusting! My friends, who are more accustom to eating at buffets even said it was salty.

I went to the counter clerk and he could barely speak English, let alone understand what I was complaining about. He then had the audacity to say that all buffets taste salty, which is not true. Sure, I understand that salt is a major preservative, but I've eaten at many buffets before and I've never had that issue.

Luckily, after about ten minutes of arguing with the guy, he finally agreed to give me my money back. Honestly, I don't know why this chain has such good reviews? I'll never eat there again, that's for sure.

Suprisingly clean and very comfortable atmosphere. The food was actually better than I anticipated. All buffets off a variety, but th variety isn't always great. I loved everything I tried. I even saved room for the chocolate fountain. Buffets are all about more food for your buck and believe me you'll enjoy the food.

My kids saw the signs for the chocolate fountain on the way down and they wanted to stop. We've never been to one and won't go to one again. The reason they call it a "corral" is because they heard you in like a bunch of cattle. The food is terrible and people push each other to get it. The wait people are over-worked. And it's not even cheap!

I had tried Golden Corral years ago and thought the quality of food was not that good but when I went this past month I was pleasantly surprised. The quality (and quantity) of food was excellent. The variety is astounding and the price is unbeatable. This is the place to go if you are hungry and want really good food. The steak was an extra bonus at dinner but from the salad bar and soups to the appetizers, breads and muffins, main courses and sides, as well as desserts, you can't go wrong for the price.
