No kidding.  If you want to punish me, lock me *in* a Golden Corral.

You just need the proper preparation.

If you're to break into a restaurant, break into one with better clients, chilli's or better. Nothing trump supporters consider fine dining.

Dipping your balls in the chocolate fountain during normal business hours is more fun but far more risky.

I've never been to a Golden Corral (the name alone is enough to frighten me away)

Is it worse than a Hometown Buffet? I was taken to one of those once and it was the worst food I've ever had at a place that actually called itself a restaurant.

I would much rather be trapped in a Waffle House. Seriously.

Or a Golden Corral.

Golden Coral said you can dip anything in the chocolate fountain.  They lied and I was banned.

Imagine a school cafeteria on steroids. That's how I would describe a Golden Corral. Stay away on Sunday's...the Church crowd takes over and you can't get near the meatloaf.

I've always wondered how hygienic that place was, especially if Cletus is before you in line for this.

It's for people who value quantity over quality.  The average customer is 200 lbs for females and 300lb for males.

True Story...

At a Golden Corral in Newnan, GA a few months ago. I was approaching the chocolate fountian and a small kid was holding his plate under one of the tiers. On closer inspection it was a plate of meatloaf, with mashed potatoes he was holding.

"You know that's not gravy, right?" I asked.

The kid responded..."Yeah, I know. But it makes it taste better."

"Duly noted."

and I walked away.

I think of it as the worst aspects of a Walmart, a Carnival Cruise ship, and a pre-Christmas Black Friday sale at your local mall.

They tore down our Sizzler a few years ago and replaced it with a brand new Denny's.

I don't know which one is worse.

golden corral is remodeling their restaurants and the overall experience is better in the remodeled ones and i'd eat at one if i was traveling but almost any decent sized town should have a local place that is better.

We don't have these or Cracker Barrel on Long Island. Nope. The only real "buffets" that we have are really bad Chinese places. $14 for all you can eat dinner. $7 for lunches. The trick is to get there during the last 30 mins of the lunch buffet and stay as long as you can.

A few years ago, my wife and I were trying to decide where to go to eat on Valentine's Day. Our 8-year-old daughter said, "Don't go to Golden Corral. It's going to be packed."

Sadly, she was right.

One of them prefers a Golden corral style chow-line.
Ate everyday at the one in McKean Federal Correctional Institution.

2018-07-12 10:39:14 AM  
When we're on a trip, we'll stop at a Golden Corral.  Simply for the fact that we won't have 4 different suggestions and can't decide where to eat.  Combine that with hot, buffet style food, we can get in and out quickly and back on the road.

Unless there's a Mediterranean place nearby.  Then it's always gyros and falafel for us.  No contest.
 
2018-07-12 10:42:23 AM  
I can't even imagine what that must have been like. (shudders).

CSB:

Back in 1990, when the Golden Corral was just a Western Sizzlin' knockoff and not a buffet, my family and I were traveling I-95 from VA to FL. We stopped for dinner in nowhere Carolina that had a pizza hut on one side of the highway and a Golden Corral on the other. We go to the Corral and are standing in line to order our steaks (Salisbury FTW) and I notice a tennage girl dressed to the nines ahead of us. She had the sequin dress, fancy heels, hair big and aquanetted, evweything. I am all WTF?!?! As we go to sit down I notice more teenage chicks dressed up the same and their dudes in tuxedos to match. I am all 'Holy shiat, it is prom night!'  At Golden Corral!

I so wanted to go check out the pizza hut but Dad wouldn't stop.

Well I personally don't want to spend $14 for the same meal I can get for $7.

And yes linner or supper are good terms for it.

For some reason, pictures aren't loading down me in this thread.
I think that's a good thing.

Some ages ago, I had dinner at a place called Ponderosa Steakhouse.
I liked their format; order some sizzling meal, get a plate to hit the sides and salad buffets.
Heck of a meal.

Apparently they still exist.

Golden Corral is the food stop I threaten the children with on road trips if they're being unruly. Snaps them right into line every time.

Though I should stop, empty threats & all that. Not even once, dude.

My restaurant threat while on the roads (especially down south) are the Waffle Houses. My kids absolutely hate that place and I can pretty much guarantee if I threaten them to stop there, they shut up and start behaving. My kids love the Golden Corral because of the dessert station and let me tell you, filling them up on all that sugar for a car ride is complete torture for me.

Only a few.

CSB time:
Ponderosa was headquartered near me when I was a young lad in the 70s, and the local place was one of their experimental restaurants where they'd try new things.  That was the first 'real' restaurant my parents took me to as a kid.  I bought 10 shares of stock in Ponderosa when I was 11 or 12 with saved-up allowance money.

GC is good for a family of picky kids who each want something different. Unfortunately, some families use it as an excuse to let their kids run riot because they had a hard week or whatever and want a break from minding their little maniacs for an hour or two.

My kids were convinced by Supersize Me that McDonalds would kill them.  I pulled over at one to hit the restroom when my kids were 8, 5, and 2 and the middle one was horrified that I even went in that den of murder.

I think they ate McD's on school field trips and the like, though, and found it to be a mediocre product.
 
2018-07-12 05:34:05 PM  
Every time we go to Spokane, my parents insist on eating at the Golden Corral on Division.

I personally don't care for it, but I humor them. I would really prefer not having to stop at the rest area outside Rosalia to shiat my guts out every farking time we've eaten there.

Next time we go, I'm dropping them off at GC, then going up the street to the Five Guys on the Newport Highway.

/on the plus side...we get some cool stuff from Cost Plus World Market ;)
