This Golden Corral in Fuquay Varina, NC is top notch. Tonight, this particular restaurant opened their doors to treat ALL veterans to a free dinner. They got on the overhead speaker & praised all veterans, they offered a prayer over the loud speaker, they brought out the color guard & flags, we were asked to place our hands over our... More

Sunday, October 9, 2016 - Hurricane Matthew has blown by us. We'd been without power since 1 pm on Saturday, and we were hungry. Golden Corral was open for breakfast, so that's what we did. Despite the fact that all of their staff couldn't make it in,due to road closures, etc., they still took excellent care of us, and the... More

As much as I hate to say it, this place should really be condemned. The food is not handled in a safe manner and we all got sick after our last visit to this location. The floors and bathrooms are really disgusting. Please spend your money wisely and go elsewhere.

plenty of food but not up to what it was the last time I was there... the prime rib`s were tough, meat loaf had a brown sauce.. i would have expected better for $40 /2 people for dinner

We were big fans of the Fuquay GC when we lived in the next town and it was one of three GC's run by the same family. We now live two hours away but visit the area often and learned that the former owners sold it and new management have taken over. We have eaten there a half dozen times... More

This is a re-review of this restaurant. When I last reviewed this establishment, the management was sharp, the line chef's were very good, and the food was of very acceptable quality for this type of store. BUT, over the last several months there has been a change in management at this franchise and the food quality and initial service has... More

Golden Corral is not fine dining...never has been...never will be. But, there is great selection and good, filling options. Where else are you going to get fried clams, pizza, breakfast, roast, salad bar, dessert bar - including cotton candy and a chocolate fountain? It's basic food and all you can eat...what's not to like? The staff at this restaurant were... More

OK, so the waitress was very helpful, and I could see someone who looked like a manager walking around looking worried because there was no line to get in at lunchtime on a Sunday. Worry-on, Mr. Manager! I love food, and I'm not super picky about it. I like just about everything from good stuff to greasy-spoon stuff, but I... More

While the Golden Corral can never be considered great food, this location provides good value for a buffet. The fired fish was good, and they had a unique tempura fish item available.
