I must admit that I really love Golden Corral and this one didn't disappoint me. It had all the usual dinner fixings on the line. Service was a bit slow since it looked understaffed.

Very fresh salad options and a great selection of main course &I sides. Tried the steak and it had great flavor, was hot off the grill and cooked to my desires. Nice collection of desserts but the chocolate fountain is awesome.

The staff are friendly and professional. The food hot and always delicious. The atmosphere is conducive to family gatherings. The fried chicken and mash potatoes covered in brown gravy are the best.

Based upon the food quality and cleanliness of the restaurant, the Gold of the Corral is quite tarnished. It's quite possible the corral is really fool's gold! I have dined off and on at the Golden Corral for the past two decades. I dine their,...More
