Rogelio Perez took over as our server last night, after a female co-worker, who was ready to go hone rudely handed off our table to him. Mr. Perez went above and beyond to get what we needed and even went to the other end of the restaurant to get more sweet tea for us after we were told by the female server that there was no more Mr. Perez did an amazing job serving us, with a smile on his face, at the end of a long day. There should be more employees like him. He turned a bad service experience into an excellent one. Thank you Mr.. Perez :)

Love going to breakfast on the weekend, wish it was available during the week as well. The price point is reasonable for the options available, if it were any higher then it would be unreasonable. Servers are generally polite and attentive. One thing I’ve notice is that there are barely any fried chicken wings in the batches of chicken that they put out. Overall this location great!!

Great Thanksgiving dinner. Super busy but they had the staff in place to deal with the crowds. Food and selection was outstanding. Prices very reasonable for all you can eat buffet - $17.

Very busy day! Thanksgiving Day! I enjoyed my visit today...I especially enjoyed hearing BUTCH the manager encouraging the staff telling them "Good Job Team ... we're doing great." I was very thankful to have experienced that...warmed my heart. Butch is great and certainly an asset to your team of great folks! Happy Thanksgiving 2021!

Food was nice and hot and delicious. Atmosphere was warm and inviting, clean and they kept the food coming. The table service was very good, so that made tipping no problem. I don't mind a good tip when the service is spot on

Good food and good prices! We were too early for the grill in this location, but we still enjoyed it. Loved the employees, they were kind and helpful.

The food is good for such a massive array of food cooked in bulk. Unlike home cooked or custom cooked food which is cooked to your specifications and has your preferred spices etc. added. This Golden Corral was so packed this past Saturday morning a week ago that people walking between our table and the salad bar were bumping my wife's chair which was disturbing. This Golden Corral doesn't serve steak for breakfast. At the Roxboro Golden Corral we have the opportunity to pay a nominal extra price for steak.

I love steak,and that's the main reason I go to Golden Corral,is for the steak. The steak was cold, a big disappointment. I usually go to the one in Raleigh off Capital Blve, but today I came to this one because it was closer to me. Other than that it was great. My waiter Juan was AWESOME!!!!!

Please update this place. It is one of the few around. Great food for the price but the items seem to be getting less and less. Food sit longer and tastes not as fresh. Had to have a Mgr change a Carrot cake last time I was there cause it was hard and stale and crumbly. Se salad it's are where the real food should be. Chocolate fountain is only for show due to covid. Less of a variety it seemed for dinner.

My "go to" place for pot roast when I don't cook it myself at home. I love to pick up Take Out. I was in the mood for vegetables, so I got their green beans and sauteed cabbage -great! On that day, they had just put out fresh yeast rolls, which are always great with their honey butter. I picked up an extra chicken leg since there was a fresh batch of fried chicken, too. Honestly, I ate tooo much! It was all fresh, hot, tasty!

I have been a pescatarian for the last four years. Going out to eat can be a challenge at times. I love being able to have a salad bar and buffet with loads of different options. Every time I go to Golden corral, I find several different fish options and many different vegetation options and salad choices. Even if you’re staying away from carbs, there are loads of items that you can choose from. They have a great variety of cold items on the salad bar and lots of different dressings to suit most anyone.

I really like this location because they have the best food. I live within 10 miles of two other locations and will gladly pass them, going 20 miles out of my way, to eat at the one off hwy 55&54. They definitely have the best salad bar of all the locations I've ever visited!

Pleasant as usual! Only place that could accommodate my party of eleven. Also, great variety. Everyone could eat whatever they were in the mood for. Waiter Alphonso was not very attentive though.

I love coming here just for a salad to go. But most of the time the salad is either old and not fresh looking or its very low. There is usually no one working over in this area.

Did not have gloves for buffet. Had to use napkins to handle spoons, it was a disaster with tongs...was surprised at limited selection. Table condiments came in a hand crate...wondered if it was disinfected between tables...Had good customer service in terms of table wait staff.

Love the staff. Hate that I almost always eat too much. But that's the way it goes. I didn't even save room for my fav dessert, their bread pudding made with their classic yeast rolls.

Went here during the reopening/ post-pandemic, They now serve you, tables are 6 feet apart & there's special walkthrough to the food. All employees have on masks. Food was fine, only thing I don't really like is having to be served. It would be nice to just put on some gloves & serve myself, then change them each time before goin back up 🤷🏾‍♀️

The buffet was kept clean and well stocked with lots of variety. There was one man who it appears that his job was to keep an eye out on people coming and going. I appreciate that as I usually don't do buffets because people can be inconsiderate and nasty sometimes. Attendants were friendly and worked constantly to keep the food coming out quickly. The food was delicious and warm. They could use more waitresses or waiters. Ours was friendly but was all over the place working. It took him a long time to get back with drink refills. Other than that, I recommend this location.

Friendly and attentive wait staff on our visit buffet stayed stocked and fairly stocked throughout our time there!!! My fiancee 😍 Tiffany Godfrey, her mother, her brother and I greatly enjoyed our dinners and were able to seat ourselves in a quiet nook where we had plenty of room and privacy to eat and conversate with one another without interruption or straining to hear what each other was saying!

It had been quite awhile since eating here. I was quite pleased! The food was fresh and the service was friendly. The restaurant was clean as well. I was more impressed with the 96 rating from their inspection!! That says a lot especially for a buffet restaurant. Keep up the great work!!

It was packed, the waiter was able to help all 8 of us fit in a table. We had to ask for them to put on the A/C (it was a hot day in winter). Fried chicken and the Fresh made to order steak is on point!

I ate there last weekend and enjoyed it. The prime rib was very good, and all of my vegetables were fresh. The restaurant was clean, and the staff was friendly. It was all I could eat for around $14.00.

We stopped here for dinner. It was buffet-style and there was a large variety of food to select from. The meat consisted of ribs, chicken, prime rib, turkey, and ham. We also had seafood: fish, shrimps and crab legs. There were all types of desserts also.

It's Golden Coral. It's not a fancy or upscale dining establishment. It's a low budget eatery. It's a buffet. Unsupervised children. I did witness a staff member correct an unsupervised child from continually eating directly from the buffet. That was good. The food was ok. Again, its Golden Coral.

Would have been five stars however they stopped refilling food containers a hour and a half before closing. Also watching them through water in the air to land on the floor near the food discouraged me from returning to the buffet. Other than that what I did enjoy was the yeast rolls and yams.

Travelers, this is a good solid food choice. The salad bar was great. The food was very fresh. There was a tremendous variety of things to choose from and they had a lot of vegetables on the buffet. The service is friendly with a smile. Quick and easy to get on and off the highway. Check it out. We recommend.

This is one of the better golden corral restaurants which I have been. The only thing that could have made it better was if the rolls had just a little more color. They were soft and completely cooked though, just not the color I would have preferred.

The server was great. The food was fine. I expected better fried chicken as I love Golden Corral's fried chicken and this did not meet that level of expectation. The popcorn shrimp was great, as was the salad bar. The meatloaf had a bit too much ketchup on top for my taste. For the price, I expect a bit better from the food. The dining area and restrooms could use a deep cleaning.

The food was tasty however I didn't like people picking all over the food I was about to eat. Unsupervised children playing over the desserts. I saw a woman with Daisy Dukes shorts hovering all her stuff over the food. A worker was cleaning the counter space between the entrees and hitting the chicken with his dirty rag! I did not like the carnival/amusement park like entrance with the big yellow chain you had to pass through after you paid!

Food ( broiled steak), salad n desert bars are always fresh and very tasty. For the price it's unbeatable!! What is always disappointing to me...is to see so many people waste so much food. Some parents need to be more responsible with children filling their plates and eating very little....then going to desert bar. 😤"Take what want, but eat what you take". This helps keep the price down as well folks

What I love about this place is the steak. They are usually juicy and delicious! There are a lot of other choices as well, from salad bar, Chinese entrees, pizza, fried chicken and not to mention the dessert choices. The place can get really crowded though on Sundays lunch time.

This is by far the best Golden Corral I’ve ever been too. The steak here is amazing. The food overall was high quality. I’ve been to others and leave there feeling grossed out. I stopped here because there was nothing in the area to eat (I don’t even like buffet food) and this location exceeded my expectations. The steak station was 5 star ⭐️. I even tipped the steak guy because he was amazing. This place has changed my view on Golden Corral. Coming back for sure and highly recommend.

Good food for most part but they need to consider lots of folks don't go cause too much salt in some things. Meat loaf esp, chicken little better, baked fish too much. Folks would like to get the foods that's supposed to be healthy not loaded with salt. Love the staff for most part

My mother and I were debating where to go and settled on Golden since everybody could get what they wanted. Absolutely a great value! The steak was juicy and better than steaks you buy at most steak houses that cost much more. They also have a take away option if you don't want to eat there.

I love this place, when we moved from the north this place was a great place to come and eat healthy or not, but on a budget for a family of 3 my sons 2 so he eats free! That’s $40 for me and my husband. That’s with all the refills on your drinks, and all you can eat. I’ve been to about three different locations in NC. The food and dessert are good and the staff keeps the place clean and are wonderful people!

Food was pretty much good. The chef who was cooking the steaks was not to friendly and had to speak to a manager about get a steak cooked right. Plus the waitress did know english and had to get help to understand what was being asked for. So she had to go get help after getting a few things wrong.

I was an assistant manager here, when I quit I chose not to write an angry review. Instead I am here to tell you all the behind the scenes of Golden Corral. This one in particular has some of the best kitchen staff you will meet. The food is actually pretty great compared to other Golden Corrals, however that kitchen staff is very much underpaid! Then we have the cashiers and servers, when I worked there as assistant managers I made sure our cashiers worked hard, the servers as well worked very hard. Again, underpaid staff here as well (when I was there). Customers should take note to be a lot more kind to these people, they deal with a lot of racist, angry, and hateful people. As much as I do not love to here how a manager has spoken about me :) , I will leave a great review for the employees! This place (when I was there) always cleaned throughly and cooked food correctly. I wish Butch, Miguel, Vidal and even Erica :) the best of luck. Can’t wait to visit again !! -This is a review of when I was working there, I can not account for anything that has happened since I’ve left. However I was very truthful in my writing.

I’m not a fan of buffets but promised my partner we’d go. Glad we did. A lot of fresh food & wasn’t any piles of filler deep fried beige stuff, canned veg & cheap meat that we are used to from our previous State. There was a great selection - You name it they had it. The place was packed - it was 530pm on a Saturday. A massive rainstorm had made it extra busy. There are 4 dining rooms so it didn’t feel like you were all in one big room. The decor is basic but comfortable. The servers were amazing. The brisket was out of this world, but the very best thing was the steak. I couldn’t believe it. I think it might be the best steak I’ve ever had! including many amazing steakhouses in Europe, the Caribbean, Britain and America, over decades. I’m not kidding it was that good. There were good choices of fresh veggie accompaniments. We finished with some really good soft serve ice cream topped with chocolate dipped strawberries. Even the coffee - which was made fresh, was outstanding. This change my mind about buffets. The price was pretty good, drinks are extra & ordered with cashier before sitting down. We left a tip at the table but didn’t see much of that going on which i thought sad as the staff were really amazing & couldn’t do enough for you. Everything was the temperature it’s supposed to be, the plates etc were extremely clean. Everything was topped up and if anything was out (like the strawberries) just ask and it appears in minutes. I’ve given 4.5 stars as the seafood section was lame & the bathrooms were a nightmare, half the stalls were out of order & the others I’m pretty sure were housing the possessed. The soap was out. I don’t know if I can really blame them for the loos, they were hit with very heavy traffic but still, I might need therapy after that.
