If you get sick by eating at the Golden Corral you deserve it.

My co-worker recently came back from a trip across the country and just raved about a steak he had at the Golden Corral he visited somewhere in Nebraska. I just wanted to slap him several times and say, "You visited Nebraska and couldn't find an actual steakhouse? What the hell is wrong with you?"

Golden Corral Board Meeting
 
Chair: Sure the buffet was brilliant but I feel like we're losing our cutting edge at being at the forefront of developing and distributing communicable diseases.
 
Let's make our signature dish an open communal fountain of chocolate kept at a temperature in which bacteria can thrive!
 
Rest of Board: GENIUS!

Doesn't matter if it's a Golden Corral, OCB, some random Chinese buffet or the biggest buffet in all of Vegas - if they don't figure out basic sanitation of a buffet, people will get sick and the place WILL get farked.

Our local Golden Corral is infamous for a Mother's Day foodfight/brawl in which and 80-year-old woman was injured and there were multiple arrests. This is the same city whose first Popeye's Chicken was under protection by the Sheriff's office the entire first week it opened to deal with the traffic and the hordes of people.

Watchoo talkin' bout, Willis? Golden Corral, Applebee's and Red Lobster are fancy eatin's!

Golden Corral actually has some pretty acceptable food, IMO, for chain buffet standards. If only the clientele all didn't come up from the city (this one is right outside of Philly) or the local trailer park/housing projects.
/they are a 5 star restaurant in comparison to the nasty Old Country Buffet

I stopped by a Golden Corral once whilst on the road. I'm not a food snob by any means. Everyone here rips on Macaroni Grill and Red Lobster, I think that's fine dining. But Golden Corral, Jesus. Firstly it's based around senior citizens so everything is bland as fark. And how disgusting is that chocolate fountain? They recycle the same chocolate over and over. The last guy could have stuck his dick in there for all I know. That place is foul.

Went to one with my sister on her recommendation should have known better. will never go again.

Just run 'em through the deep fryer, dip 'em in the chocolate fountain, and feed 'em to the next round of customers. The ciiiiiiiiircle of redneck liiiiiiiiife!

I walked into a Golden Corral once in Indiana.
I saw the troughs of "steak" and the fat, horrible people gleefully piling it onto their plates.
Back out the door I went.

It seems like it would be cool enough for that but it can still burn sensitive skin.

Hell, as far as buffets go, it's actually pretty good. I don't get all the hate, is it a part of being associated with the cool kids, or something? The place isn't stellar, but it's far fresher than most other buffets, and the food's always hot AND edible(You usually only get one or the other). Maybe the ones here in Utah are independent franchises, who knows? All I know is that a few years ago, they were doing a cross-promotion with Black Angus, and I could get filet mignon cooked to order by someone who knew what they were doing.

Either way, the place is better than its direct competition.

Actually, the steak is one of the few safe things to eat there. At least you can actually see them cooking it and can get it fresh off of the grill. But stuff that sits out there, ESPECIALLY the chocolate fountain - forget it. Golden Corral tends to have many kids or folks with bad hygiene manners "double dipping", reusing plates, etc.

Jon iz teh kewl: isn't that restaurant only for black people? u could say it was racially motivated


I've only been to a Golden Corral once, and it was in Indianapolis. As far as I could tell, the breakdown of the clientele was about 1/3 poor white rednecks, 1/3 poor blacks, and 1/3 poor latinos. And yes, most of them were fat.

Conclusion: Golden Corral is the place that unites obese, trashy people of ALL colors and creeds together to share plentiful Salmonella Staph aureus, and Campylobacter.

They closed down a Ryan's Cafeteria (same concept as Golden Corral basically) here in Wichita, which was shocking to me on a level I can't properly express. If there was ANYTHING that seemed like a sure thing, it was all-you-can-eat shiatty food in the middle of Kansas.

I can only assume that one of the cooks was caught preparing a piece of fish that wasn't breaded in some way, and they just shut the place down in shame.
 
2012-12-14 04:31:50 PM
There's one of these Corral places like three minutes from where I live and the place is packed. Constantly. Every damn day of the week, noon to 10 pm, there is never a free spot in the parking lot. It mystify's the hell out of me, even though I've never been in there. If I didnt personally despise going into excessively busy restaurants unless I'm going with friends or it's my birthday, I'd probably have gone in there.

WTF are they serving that brings in so many damn people?

Well, you just described the guy to a T, so there's that. Still, one would think in Omaha you could find a much better steak.

"Filet mignon" huh? Google "transglutaminase". Or if you're lazy, Google "meat glue".

What you ate was not filet mignon.

Yes, it was. I purchase and cook steak all the time. I know what it looks like and tastes like, and I know what texture to expect from it. It wasn't as good as I can do, but it wasn't what you're pretending that it is, either.

What you had was a "Flaming Yawn" - so named for its after effects the next day. And by "Yawn" we aren't talking an oral one.

Face it. You have no taste. Don't fight it, just accept it. You're lucky actually - you are satisfied with utter crap.
