“Great Buffet”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The restaurant was really busy but the staff really hustled to keep it clean. The food was really good and the new chocolate waterfall and cotton candy for dessert were really fun. Fried chicken was crispy and delicious and the salad bar was well stocked with lots of great, fresh options. All the food was really good. I'm not usually a fan of buffet restaurants because they attract an unruly crowd with poor manners, but Golden Corral seems better than the others and the staff at this one seems to make the difference. Here is a tip for diners: remember to tip your server. They are getting you drinks, clearing your table every time you make another trip to get food, picking up after your kids, and they do it all with a smile. I was surprised to see so many people leave without tipping. I would absolutely visit this restaurant again!

“OK, but light on selection”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

My wife really liked the Golden Corral in Centerville (Warner Robbins, GA) so we decided to try this one. It wasn't bad, just seemed like they had the variety of the others.

“Much better food than I expected.”
Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

I did not have high expectations and expected bland buffet cafeteria food with most vegetables out of a can. I was pleasantly surprised. The steak was excellent and much better than a lot of expensive steak houses I've been too. Melt in your mouth. The other selections were good quality as well.

“I enjoyed this place.”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Food was good, hot, relatively inexpensive. I went there about 5PM, on a Saturday, and it wasn't crowded at all. The table was sticky, as was the chair. I do like Golden Corrals....and this one was typically good.
