There was quite a packed house for a Friday night at Golden Corral. Even with the capacity of the restaurant and a line at the entrance, we were seated fairly quickly. For a limited time only, they were serving up sirloin steak, prime rib, and steak on Fridays through Sundays for only $12.99. Knowing this, the first things I went to grab was the sirloin steak and the prime rib. The sirloin steak was cooked medium and was pretty good. The prime rib was good, but lacked a bit of flavor. I even feel that Golden Corral’s prime rib tasted better than Thunder Valley Buffet’s prime rib. The fried chicken was reminiscent of KFC’s original recipe and tasted really good. The meatloaf was flavorful and soft. The grilled buttered toast was really good! The Mac and Cheese, Chinese offerings, pizza, and salad was OK, but not really good. The salmon did not taste fresh and was very dry. I found it interesting that Golden Corral was serving up cotton candy and chocolate dipped strawberries today.
Overall, for such a low price, the meal was definitely worth it as long as you can stand the screaming kids in the restaurant. Food choice is definitely better here than at Hometown Buffet. Our server was on the ball and was quick to remove dirty plates. If you were going to look for a good American buffet close to home, go to Golden Corral.
