Ended up eating luch there on April 29th. The food was delicious and the staff very fienldy. Steve took care of our table and make sure our glasses did not go dry. Very clean and food bars kept stocked.

Food and service were both decent. They are centrally located and convenient. They are privately owned and do NOT honor the Golden Corral specials advertised on TV. That was disappointing!

We go to GC at different locations. This is one of the better ones as very clean, staff was friendly, our server extremely good, and the food selection large - Taste very good.

Typical Golden Corral. Lots of choices, food was correct temp, my waitress was very good and sadly I didn't get her name but she had dark hair and a small back brace around her lower back. I was there on Dec 9 at 4pm.

Stopped in while passing through Lynchburg. No lines, reasonably priced and friendly service. Nice variety on the buffet including a ton of desserts. Sometimes buffets can be all over the place, but we found this one to be very good.

Basically it is cafeteria food. The food is 2nd grade at best. The meat is overloaded with salt. It is good if you want a lot of cheap food and you don't care about quality (I have had better food at McDonalds).
