Food was sitting around and cold. That's hash browns were so greasy they made me want to vomit. More people were coming and they were not putting out anything fresh. They had some Mini quiches and they tasted like they had just unthawed them from a package and not even heated them up. They have an omelet station where they... More

Horrible horrible horrible! Food is very low quality, chicken is dry, desserts all taste the same, food is not fresh. Staff was very nice. However there is a "General Manager" who treats the employees like objects. I made him aware that I could hear him yelling at his employes he told me I didn't have to tell him how to... More

I like the value, general modest quality and acknowledgement towards Veterans and seniors. However, this is the worst Golden Corral I have ever been to, and I have been to many! However this location which I also sent a notice to Corporate on, started off with watered down salad dressings that were tasteless and an overall bland tasteless that went... More

Upon arrival the cashier failed to look up and acknowledge us to take an order and seemed to be more immersed in writing a note than taking care of guests. The chef working the steak area was not very friendly and even a "thank you" didn't solicit a "you're welcome." Another guest wanted a side and she instructed him he... More

We've been to this Golden Corral many times over the years but never for Thanksgiving. We arrived at about 11 am as recommended and found the line was just beginning to be outside of the building; by the time we left is was as much inside as out. Our experience was great! The food was wonderful and our wait staff... More

I met my brother and a friend of ours at the Golden Corral in Orem for lunch on Wednesday, November 2, 2016. As usual, we all enjoyed the offerings of Golden Corral, from the fresh salads to the hot selections to the desserts, including soft- and hard-serve ice cream. Most times I visit Golden Corral, I make it a point... More

Every Golden Corral seems identical to each other one but that gives me a comfort knowing the food is good and the value is always there.I enjoy a buffet every once in a while and Golden Corral does not disappoint. The roast beef I had was very tender. All the other dishes were good as well. Not keen on the... More

We recently invited family to get-togethers at Golden Corral and Chuck O Rama. Here's my summary of the two experiences: Ambiance At Golden Corral you get to eat on small colored plastic plates and flatware so flimsy it could have come from a Boy Scout mess kit. The blue, orange, and green plates make you feel like you're in grade... More

My daughters relly enjoy eating here. They are 10 and 6, so it is pretty fun for them. My husband and I love it too. Nice, clean, lots of choices.

If you are a senior and can delay lunch until after 2:00 PM this is the best deal going. No where else can you have as many options including a drink and get out for less than ten dollars. There is bound to be something everyone in your party will enjoy: salads, soups, entres, and gooey yummy desserts including both... More
