Stopped in on the way to TN for a quick bite. It the usual buffet. The restaurant was showing its age. The food was ok. I do like their salad bar.

We like Golden Corral when we travel because we like variety and we always seem to have a good experience. This stop was no exception. The food on the line was fresh and we enjoyed it.

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
