Our first visit to this restaurant chain and were very surprised. The food choice and quality, considering that it is an 'all you can eat buffett' was very good. The staff were very helpful and friendly

We enjoy eating here because we can get home style food that we can't get at most restaurants. Great salad bar with fresh fruit,a great variety of vegetables such as corn and green beans to spinach and cauliflower. 6 or 7 different meats, including a Mexican bar and Chinese . Gee I am hungry again just thinking about it!

There is nothing special about Golden Corral other than it is an all you can stuff youself eatery. From breakfast to desserts, they should have what you're looking for and more.

We stopped there for supper while on vacation. You could tell that it is a favorite place to eat in the area. The food was very good, the servers were quick to refill glasses and remove plates.

I often do the drive trip back and forth to Chicago on Hy 55 from St Louis. While on the road, I also tend to stop at the Golden Corral restaurant in Springfield, as they have a quick "easy on/easy off" exit (16th St Exit) from the interstate itself. I've been doing this business drive run for a number of... More

Always a good selection. The food is usually fresh, hot, and not soggy. The fried chicken is not greasy. The price is quite reasonable (except for the $2.50 iced tea).

We were there for the weekend breakfast buffet and had a lot of choices and most things were good. Only thing was the hash browns I think someone had poured 1/2 salt shaker over them other then that all was good.

The food was wonderful, the wait staff attentive, and the price was right! I apparently can't control myself and this is a place for me to avoid unless I plan on getting a lot larger!
