In general, I have found mid to low priced buffets (such as Golden Corral) food stations to be reasonably clean, given that customers are continuously serving themselves from at the buffet line, and not all customers are careful when doing so. The staff seems to do a pretty good job of keeping food stations clean. I have never gotten sick from a buffet, even if the food stations were a little messy, so, although I am a fanatically neat person, I am not deterred by a little mess at the stations. The staff seems to be quick to wipe down tables upon customer departure, so the tables seemed clean to me. The cleanliness of the carpet/flooring at many Golden Corral restaurants that I have visited, including this one, always seems to be a bit too dirty. Some people are very careless, sloppy eaters, leaving food on the table, on the seating and on the floor. Given the casual nature of self-service buffets and the high number of customers served, at this Golden Corral (like many other self-serve buffets) customers will almost always be able to see bits of food on the carpet. Not a pleasant sight, but inevitable unless staff were to ask diners to get up from their table so the staff could clean dropped food from the carpet under their feet. The "Short" answer is, "The lighting seemed a bit dim, the carpet seemed a bit dirty, I set aside a plate and some tableware that hadn't been completely cleaned, and the air was humid and had an unappetizing smell due to the mixing of too many food aromas The staff seemed to do a reasonable job of keeping up with clearing tables and wiping down food stations. I was traveling solo, and although upon entering I felt the atmosphere was less than ideal, in the end, I was satisfied with the meal and value.
