I have not been to a buffet like this in quite some time. There are so man items to choose from, no one should be disappointed. Being from New Jersey, the food has a whole different taste. We were in town for a funeral and we went for dinner on a Friday night. We went @ 8 pm on a... More

I’ve grown wary of buffet places over the past several years. The food is usually pretty disappointing. But a Canadian friend came to town and wanted to experience something quintessentially American and excessive. Enter Golden Corral. It had been several years since I’d been. In the past, I’ve left miserable and let down. Although we most certainly ate too much,... More

Went with my Father-In-Law Night they were honoring Veterans for their service. They didn't charge for the Veteran . It was hectic. However, everything was performed in an orderly manner Service was excellent & most courteous. Food was hot & tasty.

You honestly will never get what you pay for it out of this restaurant. All you can eat is 2 plates and you are ready to go. For two people that is 31 bucks. Not worth it

We came to Golden Corral after my sister's graduation from NCCU Law School. I guess she chose it because we had such a big group and she thought it would work for everyone. The food was decent. The restaurant is in need of a deep clean. Everything felt dirty. For the amount you pay for dinner, it's worth it.

Golden Corral has a great breakfast buffet----with lots of choices----the omelets are cooked to order....and everything is available. Reasonably priced, your meal includes juice and milk.

We came to the Golden Corral while on a trip to take our youngest son for his first year in college and to visit with your oldest two sons and their friends/family. We arrived for breakfast at 10:00 am and needed a table for 10. They quickly put a table together for us and everyone was off to fix their... More

Everything I love about Golden Corral -- the items on the salad bar were fresh, with all the variety one could ask for. The items on the hot buffet were always hot. We ate there several times during our visit to Durham and were very pleased with the quality and value for the money.
