We were on vacation in NC and the kids wanted to eat at Golden Corral. This location was the closest so we took the trip even though it was a bit of a drive. We have eaten at many Golden Corral locations and have never had any complaints, normally we really enjoy it.
upon entering you are greeting by an odd smell, at first I thought it was some sort of cleaning product so I quickly dismissed it. Once seated it became aparent it was something more. It smelled like garbage on a hot day. Hesitantely we went to the buffet and most of the food was either dried out, empty or almost empty. I understand we were there at an off time (3:00 pm) but that doesn't excuse the fact that everything was so poor.
The salad bar looked just as bad, the fruit was old looking and had obviously been out for awhile, most of the toppings we empty or close to being empty. I chose to pass on it so I can't say how it tasted.
Desert was almost non existant, Carrot cake, chocolate cake, cotton candy were all gone. I asked the attendent if they were bringing more out she said oh yes I'll be right back. Never to return, waited several minutes and no one came back. So I just skipped it. Before leaving I walked over approx 30 min had passed and still both were empty.
Golden Corral in general is a very nice restaurant this particular one is run VERY poor. Would not recommend.
