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.

You will be reading other reviews about the numerous food choices. Only those people who have never gone to a Golden Corral don't already know this. You can really put on the pounds eating here, but it's very good compared with a lot of buffets....More

I eat here fairly often, and think the food is pretty good for the price. If you are a senior (over 60) take advantage of the early bird weekdays from 2-4pm. a buffet and a drink is like $8.50. I see they have really cut...More
