“Golden Corral Buffett - Clean, Pleasant and Finger Licking Good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

WE live in the metropolitan area, which basically covers Northern Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C.? After having a breakfast meeting that this location ( Arundel Mills) I strongly recommend this place. Of course, what is to be expected of all you can eat buffet, it’s not classified as ‘fine dining’, but to compare this place to the Golden Corral at the Capital Blvd., you might see yourself with cloth napkins, good services and fine dining (food). Let’s not bad mouth the Capital Blvd., what the hell… it’s horrible as it related to the cleanness, noise and the rude and lazy staff. Arundel Mills, offers reserved seating, reasonable level of noise and finger licking chicken. The food is decent for what you are getting; however, whoever cooks the chicken, “I’m in love”. So, if you are in the area stop by, get a meal and then cross the road to the casino or shop at the mall----- location, location, location. WARNING- DO NOT STOP AT THE CAPITAL BLVD GOLDEN CORRAL.

“Love this Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Reasonable price and quality food and all you can eat.
Not much to dislike. Love the ribs. The one thing I do not like so much is their pies.

“Quantity over quality here.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Almost forgot to review this place. If you are looking for quantity over quality this is the place for you. I had never been to a Golden Corral and my sweetheart said he had been to one and it was good. What he failed to mention was that it was years before in another state. Super. Things had changed apparently.

As you might expect, the place was busy with a ton of kids everywhere, there are a number of food stations where you can get breads, salad, Chinese food, Mac and cheese etc.... There was a lot of variety but nothing had much flavor at all. It all tasted suspiciously like wallpaper paste. We were both sick afterwards. I tried a variety of foods, this place had to be busy for a reason right? The food was not the reason!

The people watching was awesome and our waitress was really nice,very efficient, she had a way with several of the regulars. Kids will love the choices available at the dessert station... But my advice would be to skip it and try something else.

“Very Good cheap eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

This location was well maintain and our waitress Sunny was the best. She was so attentive and made sure that your glass was always filled. We never had dirty dishes on the table. She worked hard and we made sure that we left her a good tip. She kept thanking us and even hugged us as we left. She was too sweet.

“Okay Buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This is an okay buffet with good food. A little put off that I couldn't move two tables together for a party of 9 (Jinalyn refused to allow us). Heavy rain during dinner, so we were not rushed. Not as impressed as last time.
