Nice, clean, and lots of choices. Salad is my reason for buffets. Crisp lettuce and all the fixings for an outstanding salad. Liver and onions pretty good, mac and cheese was delicious. Will go again. Kind of pricy but if you eat a lot then it's a good price.

We had outstanding food and tremendous service. The choices met the needs of the varied desires of our entire group of 17. Our server Ray was terrific, as he kept our drinks full and even brought us some hot fresh rolls. The value of this establishment is one of the best we've ever encountered. We will be back and I...

I really enjoy Golden Corrals...I've eaten at a lot of them in different states. Especially on Veteran's Day...I am usually near one that day or "group" of days, for a free or very inexpensive meal if they charge. However, the regular menu price and the senior menus are really good....I still need to get over to this GC for breakfast...tomorrow... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the Golden Corral in Pasadena, Texas, the food was great and the place was clean. All the food and salad bar was well stocked and the waitress was attentive and kept our drinks refilled. It was a good meal and good experience. When in the area, we will eat there again.

Presentation was fairly lousy. Food looked old and uninviting but there is plenty of it. Service was spotty but we were not totally ignored. Our table was not clean but we cleaned it ourselves. All in all I ate in worse places in Vietnam During the war. Great place if everything else is closed.

New restaurant for me, they don't have these where I live. The restaurant was very large, there were several meeting rooms. There were a lot of families with children, too. They serve buffet style, with a waffle bar and an omelet station. The buffet was extensive, and included every offering imaginable for a good brunch. The atmosphere was aroma of... More

There was a free breakfast where I stayed, but sometimes fruit and cereal doesn't quite cut it. I went down the road to a familar friend called Golden Corral and found a few choices I hadn't seen before. (It was my first time having eggs benedict) In addition to the usual, I liked the made to order eggs where we... More

I love the cotton candy! Peel and eat shrimp is also nice. Drink is extra $2, which you won't find it till you come to pay for it....I thought it was included. I don't dine this buffet style because you eat more than you should....!
