The food wasn't what I remembered and the service was really bad. The place was dirty tables, floors and buffet. The guy cooking the steak didn't speak English so its like what the hell... Why did I even go there.

I have been to Golden Corrals in several states and locations. This one is worth returning to. Seemed clean and well stocked. Never did find a chicken leg, though! The new shrimp citrus taco is very different and tasty! Disappointed that they don't seem to...More

Wife and I tried about 15 different foods. We loved most of them, liked two, and hated zero. Our server was Johnny-on-the-spot with drink refills. Prices for seniors are always a treat at the Golden Corral chain.

This is a good place to go for variety. There's something for everyone. The waitresses are always friendly and everything was pretty clean. You get many choices for the price of some fast food places these days.

Not much to say as we always get a good buffet no matter what town we visit. Salad bar seemed better than most.

We were in the Joliet area with a group of people for lunch and could not decide on just 1 place to eat. So we went to Golden Corral because of the variety. We were not disappointed. As with any buffet some items were not...More
