While I am very fortunate to travel all over the world and eat at some of the most wonderful and interesting places this is not one of them at all but it did however exceed my expectations which is the sign of a great experience.

What I expected was a fair, at best selection of choices, fair at best quality, fair at best service and very good value. While it was very good value it was also very solid selection of fresh choices, outstanding friendly service and above average quality for the price. $26 for myself and the girls "all in".

The salad bar had a very large selection of fresh choices. The entree selections were what you would expect fried chicken, fish, pizza, and the big open grill. They server top sirloin and while it was not a filet from Masteo's or the Palm it was OK. Since they are cooking in volume getting the temp we wanted was no problem.

Sides were also what you would expect not to much fresh stuff here but all were fine.

Kids went crazy, after eating a very good dinner, for the dessert bar which had all kinds of sweets.

So again this was not Ruth's Chris or anything close but the key is what you expect vs. what you get and going in I expected a subpar cattle herd experience and got a pretty good meal with very good and attentive service at a great price. Would not say I am going back all the time but for sure have no problem ever making a trip once and a while, especially with the kids because they have so many choices.

Stopped in this Golden Corral for supper yesterday and was pleased to see a GREAT selection of food - from American to Asian and Italian, etc. They keep everything well stocked and at the correct temperature and the food all tasted good.

The young female server was very efficient, friendly and attentive without being a pest.

The senior supper meal was under $8.00 but the price of the drink was $2.09 each - which I thought was too much even though there was a wide selection from which to choose. All things considered, just over $12 per person (including tax and tip) was worth the cost for an all-you-can-eat meal.

This place hasn't been open a full year yet and already they have received a low heath score. It was 78 and the FOLLOW UP score was an 84. YUCK!!!! Here's the kicker, it's because of rodents and roaches that were seen my the health inspector. I make sure I read all health inspections to see why....BTW: We went to another restaurant
