We chose to meet family here for the holiday meal. It was nice. The place was crowded. Even so, the staff kept all the dishes fresh and available. Our first experience at dining at a holiday buffet was a nice one.

I generally don't like buffet places. I went along with a group decision and ended up at Golden Corral. I was pleasantly surprised. Everything was fresh. The fried chicken was excellent. The service was polite and quick. Interesting people were there too. I would go back just for the chicken and the people watching.

We were a little late for lunch prices so she dug up some coupons for us. 3 of us. I asked her if she would mind if I gave... More

A typical Golden Corral with lots of selections, some good and some not so good. They all offer a lot for your money. PRIME RIB WAS GREAT AND THE STEAK WAS BAD.ETC.. The thing that you need to avoid at this location is a warm (or Texas hot)weekend or summer time meal--- if you do not like lots of kids... More

I forget that they have a wide selection of food there that you get lost with everything but I enjoyed a little bit of everything to include a dessert with coffee before leaving. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful (Malik)

What a better way to end the day of having fun at Schlitterbahn than to have a nice home-style dinner at Golden Corral. Our waitress Ms. Kaylon was FABULOUS. Keep up the good work

We were travelling and in New Braunfels with two little kids. Eating out with little kids is hard, travelling with little kids is hard. We passed this Golden Corral on the way to our hotel for the night and my husband suggested we give it a try. He even pulled up reviews online to show me. After seeing many positive... More

The food is ok. Prices are good, on Sunday's and special days, it is packed with too many people. Sometimes there is not enough seating. Once in a while, you may see a kid getting his food
