So much to choose from, desserts, salads, and many main dishes. The spaghetti sauces is the closest to my own.

We stayed in Joplin because we wanted to go to Chicken Mary's or Chicken Annie's in Pittsburg but got in a little late. We found out it was about 35 miles north and was to tired to make the drive so we went to the Golden Corral. It was only about 3 blocks from our motel. We got in quickly... More

Friendly staff. The food for breakfast was about average. The bacon was really good. Clean. Huge selection of food. And it's hot. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.

There were many food choices and the ones we chose were all very good. We had the breakfast buffet and couldn't have been more pleased. Our table servers were exceptional. We visited this Golden Corral two different times and our servers were different each time. They were both very attentive and our coffee never ran out. Great experience altogether

Food is consistent, self serve buffet. Selection is pretty good, some consideration is given to special needs diets. Like most eateries, not a place to go for losing weight, do have a few sugar free items... Salad bar was fairly good selection....

We have eaten at many buffet restaurants on our vacations but the Golden Corral in Joplin, MO near our hometown is the best. The food is fresh and plentiful and I like watching the cooks. Their roast beef and meat loaf are to die for. The salad bar is fresh and delicious. They have the best yeast rolls around. A... More

A wide variety of entrees and sides to choose from. The salad bar (my personal favorite) was amazing as always :)

Stopped in here on our way home from Branson. The grandkids were able to get something that they liked, any eat till they were full. Which is something with growing boys. Good food, quick and easy.
