We were greeted warmly and the staff were wonderful, the manager Chelsea Gill greeted us and our waitress Ebony was great made us feel at home with her smile and eagerness... More

Stopped here about 2:30 for a late lunch, early dinner on a Friday afternoon. Clarisa was assigned to our table and was friendly and attentive. Food was tasty (better than the Peoria one) and there was a good variety.

Variety of food, great taste, & food is always the right temp. Waitress check on beverage refills & removes dirty plates promptly.

Ribs, steak, chicken, shrimp, fish and all the usual proteins available. What a great selection of American, Asian and Mexican dishes. The chefs sure do a great job of ensuring that food is fresh and not left in warmers too long that food becomes over cooked. Vegetables still had their "snap"—very difficult to maintain on a buffet line. The thing... More

On our recent ministry sabbatical to Branson, MO we made a lunch stop before heading to our final destination. Having just stopped at a local health food store (Mamma Jeans) for groceries we put into our Google GPS navigation tool for Golden Corral one of our favorite eateries. Great news we found one! Can we say it was truly a... More

You'll be amazed at the length of the counters with the tremendous variety of food. One of the nice things about a buffet like this, is you can try little portions of different items. Or you could just pile up your plate and chow down for a month of hibernating. I must admit the dessert counter was excellent and you... More

This particular location outdid themselves on Monday, November 17, for something new. Instead of serving veterans on its actual holiday of November 11th from 5 to 9 p.m., Golden Corral in Springfield, Illinois served all day on the 17th. They even provided a few new items on the buffet; my particular favorite was a strawberry shooter on the dessert bar.... More

If you walk away from the Golden Corral hungry, you did something wrong! Granted, much of the food is on the salty side, but there was a wide variety of food that was available and so there were some healthier selections. Meat had some gristle but chops and bourbon chicken were big hits.
