I visited between lunch / dinner time with a couple of friends. There was a lot of variety in what was being served. We enjoyed all the things we tried (pretty much every category but the seafood). The standouts for me were the real mashed potatoes, bourbon chicken, and the really fun dessert bar. We will definitely go back.

Don't have a lot to say about this restaurant. I went there to get a salad and I always like Golden Corral salads because it gives you a pretty good selection. However, the person on the salad bar was not friendly at all. While I was fixing my salad, she was cleaning and food was falling into other containers and... More

No matter what, you get your money's worth. Buffet selection good, the salad bar was fair but the dressings creamy heavy consistency. All the beautiful veggies were flavorless, under seasoned. the chicken noodle soup unrecognizable.Vegetarians are going to be disappointed! Service was good, the employees friendly. While visiting be prepared to take a jacket. I could not relax, while freezing... More

I went to this venue as I had been here 6 Years ago. I was in Sanford to see my Daughter and grandson. I was also with my niece and nephew in law. After paying for our meals we sat by servers area. Thinking we would get good service being close. Wrong Answer. Our glasses were dry most of time.... More

Coffee is no longer complementary there's an additional price! Buffet prices already high and they want you to pay extra for coffee, which had been included!!!

We have not been to the Golden Corral in Sanford in a while. We went today after church to try something a little different. I was impressed with the idea that we could choose between breakfast and lunch items on the food bar at 1:00 PM. The food was very tasty and I especially enjoyed the scrambled egg and sausage...
