I believe Golden Corral has the best fried chicken of any restaurant including the high-priced ones. They have a lot of good food, from salads and vegetables to meats and desserts. We eat out at least once a week, and we always come out much less expensively at Golden Corral than most other places we eat. The service is usually... More

My friend and I went there with her daughter after church. My friend was anxious that she had to pay $14.00 for the shrimp buffet that her daughter who just had her tonsils out could not even eat. My goodness it was $18.00 just for me! Crazy! She was rung up wrong by a lady with "management team" on her... More

Love this restaurant. Great Steak and I love the bourbon street chicken. Servers are always excellent. The restaurant is clean and the food is replenished quickly. It is good and pleases the whole family.

We ate here because it was convenient for a group of about 40. Otherwise, it would take a long time for everyone to order separately from a menu. There were plenty of choices to suit all tastes. The steak was perfect. Others enjoyed prime rib. There were three shrimp options, which I enjoyed. The roast is tender. Hand dipped ice... More

We go to Golden Corral in Bristol, VA at least once a month. The food is always good. If we only ate the salad bar, it would still be reasonably priced - their salad bar is excellent. BUT their other food is also very good. I especially like their fried chicken. Occasionally, they have prime rib, shrimp, salmon, and BBQ... More

We've eaten at this location many times,and there's rarely been any issues what-so-ever (none come to mind,actually). That doesn't mean everything is always perfect,but nothing ever is. They always have a great selection of foods (and types of foods,be it breakfast,lunch or dinner foods) to choose from,my wife says the salad bars is always great (I'm a meatetarian :p ),and... More

My wife and I stop here often when we are traveling from GA to the Northeast, just off of I-81. We get a carry out and eat it on the way. They weigh the food by the pound. I wish it was a one price carry out however, but we get enough as it is. We like it.

The prime rib not bad not what you would get at the chop house but not bad and you have a selection of so much more. If you like meat chicken it is the place.

Good food, excellent service. The only problem I had was an over charge for an adult buffets on my card. Went back to the manager to have it taken off. I've waited over a week the money is still not back into my account. Just be careful and check your receipt before leaving.
