Food has no taste. I would rather spend the money on a plate of food somewhere else. The rolls are the only thing I liked here.

It amazes me that in the state of Utah, you are required to carry a Food Handler's Permit to work around food. The reason for amazement is food safety is not often enforced at least from my experience.I don't know why they even require the permit because managers I have showed the permit to shrug when you have it. They don't even want to see it and it costs $20.00! As an employee working in a Vernal food establishment, I have seen salads being made on a raw meat(red) cutting board and served,(!) wearing gloves as a second hand, and generally doing things (not providing soap in employee bathrooms, storing leftover food in cans...) that would get you written up or fired elsewhere but seems to be A-OK here. When calling attention to these things, the manager somehow becomes threatened I am trying to steal their job away and so causes unnecessary drama. That being said I have had raw chicken at Golden Corral in Vernal on two separate occasions.Raw as when blood gushes out the top when pierced. No apologies, no attention to the problem, just blank stares by the wait staff and then walking away both times, seven years apart(yes I never ate here for seven years from the first incident and then went back and the chicken was raw again.). Sorry, staring is not going to make it magically delicious. Cooking it might.

Golden Corrals are all equal but some are more equal than others and this isn't one of them. The food wasn't very well-presented - they seem quite content to leave dried-up tubs of soup on show, for example. I saw one diner pick up a new plate only to see dried-up food on the back of the plate below. He pointed this out to a passing waitress who said 'well, it's not my fault' and walked off, doing nothing about it. If you see forks in the dispenser, make sure you grab one because it might be the last you'll see for a while - they don't fall over themselves to keep on top of the washing up.The whole aura is of a slightly grubby canteen. No-one expects GC to be the Ritz but this is a relatively dirty example of the chain and we have eaten in many far better examples. Food was no better than adequate.

There isn't much dining in Vernal so we decided to try this. The health department needs to take over! The aprons the staff wear look like they haven't been washed in weeks. There is food all over the floor. Almost slipped twice on food left on the floor. The choices were bad buffet style. Had hair cooked into a piece of fish. The carpet hasn't been steam cleaned ever. Overall GROSS!

Old building...fine, but it was dirty. Food was not good. Place was busy, but why??? $11 for adult plus drink. Nothing like Golden Corral's I have visited before. This is something to pass on.
