This is one of the best golden corrals we have been to. The food was well presented and prepared, the building could use some maintenance. But the staff was outstanding as was the food. If you have an appetite and not sure what you want this is the place for you and your family. They have a wide selection. We... More

They make some down home simple fair that can't be surpassed. It is hectic a lot but not their fault. Some of the hi-tone stuff ain't that good.

I took my kiddos for the chocolate fountain but, of course they needed to eat first. I immediately smelled an odor once we headed to wash our hands in the restroom. We then proceeded to make our plates but, not before we noticed that our waitress was standing in a puddle of water. I advised her that this was unsafe... More

Forget the fact that it's good buffet or unlimited all you can eat. When the food is hot, fresh and staff great and tentative to all customers that's what makes this simple place fantastic. Love the prime rib, steaks, fish, bar b q, killer deserts and wow the chocolate dipped strawberries what else is there to say. Happy happy

One of the worst food experiences I ever had. Food sucked and the place was dirty and stinky. Not worth the money or time spent there. I ate at other Golden Corral in Spokane, WA and my experience was a lot better there. Bad management, perhaps?

Like most buffet places, very crowded for Sunday lunch. I went for dinner and it wasn't too crowded. Good place if you don't know what you want to eat: you just wander and pick what you want. Some Mexican and Chinese items. Small salad bar. Lots of variety in baked goods and desserts. I thought the dinner price was a... More

It was horrible. It was messy. It had an unclean feel to it. I imagined a large amount of germs. The food was not good. There were a ton of small children running around, and the family next to me had twins who screamed the whole time. The cups were small and the waitress didn't refill our drinks often enough....
