If you want to stuff your gullet with a endless supply of disgusting food for a cheap price, this is the place for you. It is fitting that they have the word 'corral' (defined as 'a pen for livestock') in their name because that's what it felt like the one time we ate there. The Walmart of American restaurants.

My cousin and I ate dinner at Golden Corral on Palm Sunday, yesterday April 09,2017. The place was crowded wall to wall, people everywhere!! The food was hot and delicious. I was a little disappointed with the deserts,reason being the only two I liked were out, so I didn't get any.

This has to bee the worst of the worst chain restaurants I have ever been to. The Restaurant is dirty and if you can't find anything on the buffet eatable or palatable there is something seriously wrong here!! Disgusting place and experience altogether!! Stay away from this food!!..

During our visit the areas where the food was located and out in the seating areas did not appear to be very clean and well-kept.

My friend ate there but i refused. The sauces had dried over. The baked chicken was dried up. The roast looked old and there werent many choices left. Something in the back stank and we had to sit somewhere else. The salad bowl had brown lettus left. Containers empty and just nasty. The guys behind the grill were useless!

The food looked as though it had been sitting out for days and tasted just as bad. Half of the containers were empty and never refilled while we were there. Poor service, couldn't get refills of tea and it wasn't that busy. Asked for manager but none came to us. We saw employees standing around talking and laughing instead of... More

Went there and tried the buffet. The deep fried food was cold and dried out. The meats were a little stringy. Was not impressed at all.
