This is a very clean and well managed Golden Corral. The food is fresh and the pot roast is consistently great. Reasonable price with a wide choice of options. One warning, go with a reasonable menu plan. It is very easy to overeat and eat foods that don't agree together.

This is a fairly new restaurant. The service, food, management, and OWNER was great. We were on our way to Myrtle Beach for a King fishing tournament and stopped here due to the reviews and knowledge of the owner. Great food, Lee will give you great service, fantastic food, and at a great price. Today the owner, a very nice... More

The feed trough is predictable with their food quality. The food in this one was very very similar to any other feed trough. Which is perfectly fine with us

Just had a late lunch at this GC and as always found plenty of food choices. Added Shrimp Tacos were tasty. As always, our drinks were kept full and used dishes promptly removed by Kim. Thank you Kim.

I ate here with family on the way to Myrtle Beach and I was pleases with the cleanliness of the place and the friendliness of the staff. It has been years since I went to GC after a bad experience in Las Cruces, NM. This place was the opposite of that experience and we enjoyed the food and didn't feel... More

Thank you for your great employees! They cater to kids and this is very important to many. Kind service and grilled to order steaks! If you have kids, don't forget to ask for cotton candy in the desert section!

Loads of food, taste average, server was excellent, quite pricey, $68 for four people on Sunday, where you go to put on the feed bag.

The welcome at the cash register was not what I would consider rude, but it wasn't exceptional. The cashier was nice, but it would be much better if folks were greeted with a smile and some enthusiasm. Our waitress was very nice, accommodating and checked on us just the right amount of times. She cleared the plates and extra glasses... More

I have been to other Golden Corrals (my kids' favorite choice) in other areas and their buffets had far more food choices than this buffet had to offer. However, the staff here was very personable and helpful. They also have kid's night that offers a great discount and hot food on the bars. The chocolate fountain is also available. We... More
