This is actually my favorite Golden Corral. We had banished GC for years till we moved to the Kingsport Area. Then out of desperation we at here. So, glad we did. The customer service is exceptional. The food is decent. And the prices are on par.

This location is clean, the staff is very helpful for bus groups, and the food was best I have ever had at any Golden Corral. Unfortunately b/c of the bus travel, we do them a lot. Not a fan. But would gladly stop at this one any time. Jeffrey

We have eaten here many times and it has been decent, but tonight was the worst ever! Started when we drove up-cook staff out front smoking at the entry door-swam thru smoke to walk in and cashier said we close in 30 min (9pm) -website states (9:30pm) Food was nothing more than dried up leftovers-most of the food was not...

If you've been to a Golden Corral before, you know what's in store for you here. One of the nice things about this location is the staff. Very nice folks at this location.

Excellent selection of food buffet style. Very good steaks, ribs, shrimps after 4 pm. Early bird (before 4 pm), very reasonably priced. During the rush times tho, the staff has a bit of a time keeping food to the serving spots and keeping areas clean. Children and (some adults), tend to be rather messy. I recommend this restaurant.

Usually we do not eat in a cafeteria type setting. However this place was very clean, good selection of many different types of food. Kept fresh as well and the service was great.

The place has improved much over the years. The bar consists of a variety of good food. Many people go there for the deserts, but I like the steak, lima beans, okra, mushrooms and mashed potatoes to the point there is no room left over for anything else.

I don't know what has happened to this place. Years ago, it was a good place to take your family out for a nice meal with good selection at a fair price. We hadn't been in a couple years, so we decided to go yesterday. We visited at 6:30 pm on a Thursday. First thing I noticed was a nasty... More

The price was a little expensive for seniors even after a senior discount. The food was good and the steak cooked as you wanted. The service ( picking up plates ) was a little slow, but getting thru the line to get in was good.
