Went to a show earlier and now it's time to eat. We decided to go to Golden Corral for prime rib. It was so good! This location never skips a beat. Buffet stays well stock even will all of the bus traffic they have. Great, friendly staff to match.

We used the branson guest card to receive a discount on a couple of our adult buffet purchases for breakfast. My 6 year old enjoyed the chocolate fountain.

We got to this place right before a large bus Group came in. There were lines everywhere you looked. Lines to get through the buffet area, especially near the grill area. The poor guy cooking steaks could not keep up. I think it one time I even counted that there was close to 14 people waiting for a steak one... More

I have enjoyed eating at Golden Corral in Branson. The restaurant was clean and offered a tremendous variety of food to choose from, buffet style. I would plan to eat there again.

We have eaten at several Golden Corals around the states and this one ranks in the top 5%. Clean, neat, good food. No fish on this particular night. Very satisfied with experience.
