I went here a few weeks ago for my third time ever and have to say that my experience at Golden Corral was the same as my other visits. There was a line at the doors to get in. The food was great. Excellent selection of foods to try. The seating and tables were cramped together. Kids were running around rampant without adult supervision and cutting in front of me up at the buffet. Kind of makes me feel like I'm at a good buffet that is also doubling as a daycare.

Overall, I enjoyed myself as I always do at any buffet.

GC Waukesha ...

Golden Corral is a relative newcomer in this area, but they've been here a number of years and have established a reputation. A relatively inexpensive large buffet, they have a wide variety of salad, dessert, and all the normal buffet items to keep a family happy.

We've been to a number of Golden Corrals, including ones in other states, and the one in Kenosha. The Waukesha one is fairly well kept, though it tends to be crowded and there's a tendency for it to be a bit of a mess during peak times. Overall, the quality is generally above average for a buffet restaurant, perhaps one in ten things are "bad", with most of the rest above average. We like the pot roast and the bourbon chicken... we've almost never seen them mess these up.

I'm giving this location a "satisfactory". It isn't the best GC we've been to, but it is a steady performer.

Golden Corral is located in Waukesha right next to the Aldi grocery store. Strangely, the only way to get to the restaurant is through the Aldi parking lot. One you have arrived, you will notice that the buffet prices are not cheap, but not extremely expensive either. Keep in mind that drinks are NOT included in the buffet price like they are at Old Country Buffett.

The quality and variety of food is much better than country buffett. It's actually the best quality/variety I've ever seen given it's mid-range prices. I'm especially fond of the freshly grilled cheeseburgers. You can eat an unlimited amount when you'd be paying $6-7 each at a comparable burger restaurant. The steak is not all that great however. It's tough and fatty, but that's not representative of the food in general.

Beware - each table is assigned a waiter that refills your beverages, brings napkins, utensils, and bread/butter. While some may consider this great service, I see it as detracting from the value because this is a person you need to tip. At any other buffet, you would be completely capable of retrieving your own napkins, plates, and bread and not have to tip in order to get them.

Golden Corral has such a huge variety of food it's hard to know where to start. They bring fresh, hot rolls to your table and you go from there. They have chefs making steaks on the grill constantly so you can order on the way you want it. The salad bar is huge as is the dessert area. They have many other entrees to choose from. You won't leave there hungry. It's not cheap but it's worth it.

My senior citizen parents enjoy this restaurant because of the good food and great senior citizen specials. It is definitely not gourmet here, but it does offer a large buffet selection.

We had never heard of this buffet and found it quite by accident. We walked in and asked if we could look around, thinking we probably wouldn't be staying. The first thing we saw was a large sign indicating that they cater to everything from Weight Watchers and Low Carb to Low Sodium and Low fat diets, even listing Weight Watcher points and Low Carb recommendations. Upon examination of the food tables we were surprised again. The salad bar included spinach and romaine as well as red onions. The fruit was fresh and attractive and even included Driscoll strawberries. Entree choices included several things that were neither fried nor breaded and included steaks cooked to order, rotisserie chicken, pot roast and plain pork chops. There were several options for vegetables that weren't dripping in fat or cheese. Even the dessert table had sugar-free Jell-O, sugar-free cake and sugar-free cookies. For those looking for the traditional buffet fare of high-fat breaded foods and sugary desserts, those were also there. Everything was kept quite clean and the quality of the food far exceeds Country Buffet. For anyone age 60 or older there is a discount. It's definitely worth a try but it IS still a buffet and nothing fancy or special. It's just a nice place for varied dishes when you don't feel like cooking.

PROS: Very clean, tremendous variety, selections for all eating preferences
CONS: If you get there at the wrong time the wait can be excessive

The Golden Corral makes the County Buffet look like a soup kitchen. The Golden Corral has at least double the food and dessert options as the Country Buffet and much better quality.

You're thining....must be far more expensive then....not at all....about $2 more than The Country Buffet and well worth it.

Not only that but they also have a breakfast buffet on the weekends.....I plan to try that next.

PROS: Pot Roast, Steaks, Chicken
CONS:

We went into Golden Corral and found the employees to be CLUELESS & overworked to accomidate the amount of business going thru there.

First off there is no signage to tell people how to get into their lot.

The food is made fresh before you.
They do have an extensive selection of deserts (not the best tasting though). The salad area was kept fully stocked with standard items.

We went in for a specific item featured on the marquis (bourban chicken) and find that they make a plate full @ a time and there's 4 people in front of you waiting for them to replenish it. And by the time it's your turn the plate was EMPTY!

The seating was very tight! There is only maybe 2-3 feet if that between tables.

The Golden Corral is a busy resturant and the food is fresh. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I enjoy the breaksfast buffet that is only served on the weekends and is rather busy. We usually try to arrive early before the rush. There is a wide varity of selections.

This is the best buffet for people who love variety! You can choose from eating a steak or for the kids getting slices of pizza. The service is pretty much self serve but the attendants are good about refilling your drinks. This is a great restaurant to have a family dinner, but it is crowded more on the weekends especially on Sundays. The lines can be considerably long and the wait can make you faint from hunger! But the wait is worth it because the food is great and the variety will make you a return customer.
