The vast amount of food available is indescribable. Service, ambiance and prices are fairly decent, and the place is usually crowded, but it's worth the struggle! No matter how picky you or your crowd are, you cannot come to Golden Corral and not be fully satisfied. There does not exist on this planet a mammal which would not be fulfilled here.

Very large buffet, with a grill of meat prepared to your specifications of doneness. Some sugar-free items (more that are not). Pot Roast is always tender and good. Usually have a cultural variety from Mexican to Asian etc. Even a variety of fish. Nice salad selection. They do have the chocolate fountain & the cotton candy machine as well as ice cream & many other desserts. A discount if you are 62 or older, and lunch on week days is cheaper of course than on weekends. It is on South Rangeline Road next to the big Fletcher car dealership (on east side).

The best buffet in town! They have a huge variety of food choices with a salad bar and desert bar. Chocolate fountain and cotton candy too! Great place for the whole family and you will NOT leave hungry!

We live near Joplin and have eaten here 2-3 times in the last couple of months due to traveling to hospital in Joplin. Food has gotten worse every time we have eaten there. Always crowded and just has the feel of a place that isn't too clean. Last time we went, I overheard a gentleman say that the watermelon that was just put out on the salad bar was already soured. They run out of food, the steaks they serve are not the best. The fried chicken, if they have it and if it's fresh is not bad, as well as the hot rolls. I will have to admit that the chocolate in the chocolate fountain is excellent on strawberries! Can't really believe this place is always so packed we have definitely eaten at better buffets.

When we went for the buffet it was advertised as the seafood week and the only seafood that I saw was overcooked shrimp. Half the food on the buffet was cold and the other have looked like it had been there for hours. We will not be returning to this place again
