Who knew Golden Corral and Buffets in Raleigh have gotten so Fancy Schmancy!

Real Estate Agent with Fonville Morisey

Been to Golden Corral lately?  Don't make that face!  I'm being serious!!!  I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old and we all know Realtors are not always rolling in the dough these days.  Needless to say, my family has gotten creative with our weekly dining out choices.  I must say I was very pleasantly surprised the other night when my family of four rolled into the newly renovated Golden Corral on Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh.  I knew right away this was not your average Golden Corral!  First of all, there is a greeter to make sure you are properly introduced to the facility and find your way to a table… they do not seat you, but are just super nice!  Then, this buffet had tons more food options than your average buffet… anything from Chicken Parmesan to Chicken enchiladas to T-Bone Steaks to Rotisserie Chicken.  Let me tell you about my favorite part though…. the dessert bar!  It had a Chocolate fountain!!!  In Golden Corral!  And a Cotton Candy Machine and a donut reel!  It was heaven!  To top it off the place was clean and the servers were friendly!  When we left my four year old was asking to have her birthday party there!  And at less than $25 for the four of us and all we can eat I think we can swing a party there!  So if affordability is in your vocabulary for dining experiences you may want to rediscover Golden Corral as they Revamp their image!!

As always thanks for reading!

Lauren,

I remember frequenting Golden Corral, and with discount coupons it cost me under $5 for a lunch and it was heaven. It got less heaven and more expensive

Lauren,

We do not have a Golden Corral in our State so with your post I will be watching for it to come or watching next time I'm on the road.

I hope they schedule the local GC for a makeover.  Although it has a large selection of food there was no chocolate fountain etc last time I ate there.

Lauren - how fun!  I have been noticing buffets stepping up recently too although we don't have a Golden Corral.  Hope the BD party is a success!
