Many families love to come here after church. You will soon become a regular visitor, as you can meet many of your town mates. The prices are also very reasonable. It has great food in large quantities. You can also relax in a friendly environment.

They’ve Been Here for a While

Living in the South makes it feel like Golden Corral is always there. There may be grandparents who’ve been enjoying their meals since they themselves were teenagers. That’s because the first one opened way back in 1973.

It’s 2021 now, so that’s 48 years ago. They’re also going to be here a long while, as business is booming. According to Entrepreneur.com, Golden Corral is ranked #1 among Full Service Restaurants in the Top 200 Food and Restaurant Franchising Companies of 2018. Denny’s, in comparison, ranks second in this category.

More and more locations

Fayetteville was home to the first Golden Corral. It was originally a steakhouse that could seat up to 175 persons. It grew as they opened budget steakhouses in small towns across the South, from Texas to Virginia.

Golden Corral was transformed in the 1980s by customers’ requests. They added the Buffet & Grill unit, which offers hot and cold items that numbered in the hundreds.

They also added the Brass Bell Bakery. You can also get your rolls, cookies and muffins here, as well as pizza and pies. They’re all made entirely from scratch.

They added cooked-to-order sirloin steaks to their menu in 2001. They recently added their Smokehouse menu in 2017. You can now enjoy slow-cooked smoked chicken and pork barbecue for lunch or dinner any day of the week. You can also order smoked carved baby-back ribs for your daily dinners. On weekends, there’s carved brisket and also turkey.

Today, they’re not just across the American South. They’re in New York State (there’s one in the Bronx), California, Washington State, Michigan, Nevada, and even Alaska. They’re in 42 states for the moment. There’s also a Golden Corral in Vancouver, so technically it’s now an international franchise.

How much does Golden Corral cost?

“Expensive” isn’t a word you tend to associate with Golden Corral. After all, the highest price you’d pay is when you’re enjoying a weekend dinner, and that will only cost you approximately $14.99 per person for the food. The beverages aren’t included.

Golden Corral Lunch Prices

From Monday through Saturday, brunch and lunch are available for between $10.29 and 4PM. You can also enjoy breakfast from 11AM to 4PM on Saturday and Sunday for $10.49

These low prices are one of the reasons Golden Corral is so well-known. It’s not all that easy to find similar prices in restaurants that let you eat as much as you can. Sometimes you have to wonder how these franchises make money based on how little they charge and how much food they offer, but then that’s not really your problem.

Senior Benefits

Being older does have its advantages, especially when you’re in Golden Corral. If you’re more than 60 years old, the prices drop.

If you arrive before 4PM on Friday, Saturday or Sunday for the buffet, you can enjoy your food (not inclusive of the beverage) for $9.79. You will pay only $13.99 per person for your weeknight dinner Monday through Thursday.

There’s also a Senior Early Bird Special from Monday to Friday, when you dine from 11AM to 3PM. This will cost you $8.49 per head.

What about breakfast? On Saturday and Sunday your breakfast until 11AM will only cost about $10.49 per person, though beverages aren’t part of the price. For $10.29 per person, Monday through Saturday, brunch and lunch are available until 4PM.

Many seniors love to come here because it’s such a relaxed place to visit. It’s not just because they enjoy discounts, though that’s part of the reason. Many old-timers visit Golden Corral on weekends and make each visit feel like home.

Treats for kids

Restaurants are starting to be more cautious about children’s presence. But that’s not true with Golden Corral, since they’re very welcoming when it comes to kids. Their menus are designed to cater to children.

“Kids” here don’t refer to teenagers, though. After all, they’re already adamant in saying “We’re not kids anymore,” right? On weekends, it’s only $8.99 for children aged 9-12 years old. On regular weekdays, it’s just $6.99 and that even covers the cost of the beverage

Children aged 4-8 years receive even more discounts Weekends are $7.99. On weeknights, it’s just $6.99.

What about the 3 and under-year-olds? No, they don’t have to stay home. You can bring them along and they can eat—and it’s Free.

What’s for Breakfast?

Golden Corral offers many options for starting your day. You can start with bread because even non-fans (yes, they exist) love the bread at Golden Corral. It’s considered the “cornerstone of the Golden Corral empire” and that it’s “slightly sweet, fluffy, and NOT TO BE UDNERESTIMATED”. These all-caps were taken directly from a critic.

Other options include:

  • Burritos with egg, chorizo, or sausage
  • 6 types of cereal
  • Different types of eggs are available, including eggs benedict.
  • Pancakes in chocolate chip or blueberry varieties
  • Breakfast pizza (yes, there’s such a thing)
  • There are four types of quiche
  • Oatmeal
  • Grits can be served with cheese.
  • Hotdogs

Low Cal Option

It’s annoying how you’re supposed to watch your calorie intake but there’s no way to know how many calories you’re actually consuming for each meal. Golden Corral eliminates the uncertainty by providing detailed nutritional information for each dish. They include the amount of calories, fat, cholesterol and sodium as well as the carbohydrate, sugars, and proteins.

So what should you order when you’re trying to watch your figure? Here are some low-calorie options at Golden Corral

  • Salisbury steak beef There are at least 20 options in the beef category alone, and that’s not surprising when you consider that Golden Corral started out as a steakhouse. Salisbury steak beef is a low-calorie option. It has 70 calories per serving. Other low-calorie beef options include Asian beef (110 Calories), BBQ beef (120), roast and carved beef (1110), and taco beef beef (110).

You can also find smoked short-ribs beef (340), Mongolian beef (295), Oriental Pepper beef (290), and prime Rib beef (280).

  • Pork. If you’re into pork, you also have some low-calorie options as well. A 3-ounce serving of smoked ham has 110 calories. You also get 2 pieces of grilled chicken ham steaks. Each ounce of pork sausage crumbles and the BBQ boneless pork tenders have 120 calories each. The pork sausage patties are also available with only 80 calories each.
  • Seafood. Most of the seafood items here aren’t all that heavy with calories. The Crispy Battered Fish Tacos is the exception. Each serving has a staggering 360-calorie intake. However, the shrimp dishes have only 210 to 220 calories. If you’re really trying to cut back, get breaded flounder fish for 120 calories, fried breaded fish for 90, or a serving of shrimp fajitas for 70 calories.
  • Side Dishes If you’re on a diet, you may want to avoid the sweet corn pudding and its load of 340 calories. The ravioli breaded pasta also isn’t a good idea with 370.

You can order green beans casserole at 80 calories per serving, or okra-tomato stew at 60 calories per serving. Diced sautéed onion also work great with diets since it only has 70 calories. Even better are the onions and peppers, which only have 30 calories.

  • Salads. When you’re trying to lose weight, you may want to concentrate on salads for the moment. Some of the salads here at Golden Corral can be quite filling and yet they’re low-cal enough that you can keep to your diet.

The fruit salad is an excellent option, with only 35 calories per portion. That’s the same number of calories you get from marinated vegetable salad. The strawberry spinach salad can be eaten with 40 people, while the tomato and onion salads are good with 40.

Some salads can have high calories. Although the Chicken Southern Style salad only uses half a cup, it has 280 calories. The macaroni salad is the same.

  • Desserts. Golden Corral has a long list of dessert items. Many of them are very low in total fat, cholesterol and sodium. What about calories?

It’s true that some of the items here have lots of calories. The Vanilla Pound Cake, Chocolate Frosting and Chocolate Chip Morsel has 350 calories per slice. A slice of pumpkin pie contains 300 calories. Pecan pie is even more unhealthy, at 410 calories per piece.

But it doesn’t mean that you can’t indulge your sweet tooth here, since some of the desserts aren’t too bad. If you want cake, there’s the sugar-free pistachio cake with only 100 calories. Pies may not be suitable for your diet. The Fruit Mini Pie is the lowest-calorie pie, with only 100 calories per slice.

  • Beverages. If you’re on a diet, you may want to stick to water. But if you’re hankering for soda, you have various “zero sugar”Diet Coke, Diet Dr. Pepper, and other diet varieties are available here.

You may have noticed that the local Golden Coral has a new look. While the new design aims to maintain its homey feel, it also aims for a more sophisticated appearance. Its curb appeal will be improved by its large windows, red-awnings, stacked stone towers and wood accents.

The new design also addressed the choke points in previous interiors, and they’ve changed the blueprint to make sure that patrons can enjoy a more seamless experience.

The buffet area is now located on one side, with guests sitting at another. This change alters the original design, which had the buffet area in central place with diners all around. The new design features more visually appealing items such as the carvery and smoke house areas, as well as cake decorating areas.

Some items like fryers aren’t things that diners want to see, so the new design keeps them out of sight in the kitchen. The kitchen has been redesigned to be more efficient for staff.

The dining area now has a more airy feel. The larger windows and more space between tables help keep diners from feeling claustrophobic.

Finally, each location will have a unique banquet space. These areas can include local elements, such the art of nearby artists. These banquet spaces can be used for private functions.


With lots of dishes to sample, great locations, and a reasonable cost, there’s no good reason not to visit Golden Corral. Visit it soon, and you’ll probably make it a habit to return again and again!
