Golden Corral Buffet & Grill
5071 Northwest Loop 410, San Antonio, TX 78229, United States

Review №1

Went here on Thanksgiving day and ordered the buffet to go. The food was excellent and we were in and out pretty fast considering it was such a busy day. The staff was patient and you could tell they were trained for the holidays. I also noticed that most, if not all, of the employees speak Spanish, which is nice since I have family that isn't from San Antonio or doesn't feel comfortable speaking English yet.I'd honestly love to go back and eat there on a regular day.

Review №2

They're doing a good job having buffet with servers so there is social distancing. The bacon was not good and they have no salsa, hello you're in San Antonio but the rest was pretty good. Hubby really enjoyed his omelet.

Review №3

Solid value Buffet. We paid $10.99 / Buffet but we were able to get breakfast and lunch include a steak. Food is fresher there now than it used to be. Some of the selections seem to have gone down but in today's pandemic environment a good value for a buffet. And the workers are friendly.

Review №4

I don't like the fact that they have all the deserts just sitting out there openly especially during covid. I was watching all these kids touch the desert plates and no employee was paying attention. Grosses me out.

Review №5

Service there is very horrible! Food is way too salty and poor flavored. they made me and my family feel very uncomfortable

Review №6

Buffet food here - very good. Super tasty. The staff was friendly and sociable. The place has a great feel to it. Atmosphere is similar to a cafe in San Jose I loved.

Review №7

Not so good. The food was just not good quality. Bacon was so salty you could not eat it. The gravy had a bed flavor. And the oakmeal cookies tasted like there was to much sugar. Johanna did a great job serving. Thank you Johanna.

Review №8

Great food would have been 5 stars except for the service. Needs to be better, and the wait staff needs help in customer service. Asked for a high chair as soon as we got to table, had to go get it myself because the lady looked like she didn't understand English

Review №9

They are charging the same as always but the menu is reduced by a third. It takes 15 min to wait in line for the buffet and that's after you pay at the register. It's like a huge cafeteria line. Staff loads your plate, very messy. If you get 2 plate to avoid the line the second plate gets cold while you eat the first. Most don't speak English so you have to point at what you want like a 3 year old. I speak Spanish but its hard to hear thru noise and a mask so everyone sounds lile they are mumbling. They are severely under staffed for the way they are doing things. Staff gets mad because you interrupt them prepping food because they also have to plate your food.I am not going back until I can serve my own plate again. It is not worth going to anymore I left and was still hungry.

Review №10

Buffet food and the feeling at this location is super good. entered near ten, it was not crowded. looking forward to coming back with my coworkers. the place has a good feel to it. ambience reminds me of colorado springs area I will come back here again.

Review №11

Buffet food and the feeling here is great. Very savory. It has a cool feel to it. Kinda of like a cafe in Phoenix that I enjoyed.

Review №12

Review №13

Very good food as always; clean, neat & organized. Buffet tables chained off to maintain a safe distance from food & designated servers plate food selected by customers.

Review №14

The food was way better than the one on military I did not get sick it had good flavor and the waiters and waitresses were very punctual and polite and very clean environment

Review №15

Cafeteria style buffet. Not all the food they use to have but still a decent amount to get your moneys worth. I did see they charge for jumbo shrimp and sirloin steak separate now. Staff was friendly and attentive and tables were separated a good few feet from each other the only thing was had 2 sections opened only which filled up so you do pass by all the other customers. That's my complaint that and the extra charge for steak.

Review №16

Gotta love golden corral. Food is always good. Much cleaner now because of covid and the lack of messy guests!

Review №17

Food was fresh & delicious as always. Service was awesome & the only down fall was no food vouchers for Veterans available on Veterans day.

Review №18

Buffet food and the atmosphere at this location is great. The food was tasty. The staff was very helpful and observant. This place has a great design.

Review №19

Buffet food, yeah, so tasty. Great food with quality ingredients. Next time I'll be back with my friends. The bill won't shock you.

Review №20

A top place for tasty Buffet food. do yourself a favor and give this place a try. certainly worth a return visit. this place has many good reviews for a reason.

Review №21

Good friendly staff, the food is always hot and fresh. It can get very busy so keep that in mind. Parking is normally not an issue. Like I said it does get busy because of large groups at times.

Review №22

Very clean. I like how they have changed it. They now serve u. It's like a Lubys but with more selection.

Review №23

Good good I love the new way o FCC seg ing I hope they co tis to see e t.c he fox fod you e da was he we are ex do e with TV his la deme t

Review №24

Tasty food. Good prices. Friendly staff. Clean.

Review №25

The prime rib was very least most of it. The catfish, which I am not really a big fan of, was very good; a lot better than some restaurants I have been to. The shrimp was fairly tasty as well. They could use some asparagus on the line and some arugula as well. The big disappointment was the steaks. My wife and I ordered medium and they were well done. Not a hint of pink. We tried again and were greeted with the same results.

Review №26

Great Buffet. Clean. Awesome service. Lunch time was wonderful.

Review №27

I understand we can't serve ourselves so it's important to tell them t he amount otherwise you wont have effort space to add other sides overall food was good alittle pricey

Review №28

Shortage in choices not as good as it used to be we loved this place but my ladt experience I'm rethinking about it i know that this pandemic has hit hard alot of people but the way i see it all the food is covered correctly as usual but this measures were to ectreme for my point of view i will check it again ive been going there for the past 15 years sometimes twice a week and furthermore i live 60 miles away fortunately i wrk in town .i will keep tabs .

Review №29

The food was good as usual & the servers are great. Today was a lovely day out with my Aunt & this is one of her favorite places.

Review №30

Great food and great table service. Went here with my buddies from work. We had a blast and ate to our hearts content. Lots of delicious food varieties and sweets.

Review №31

We went here on a Sunday and its packed, no wonder why - because they serve fresh food. Imagine having steak or ribs cooked to your preference in front of you. I love their salad bar, my daughter can't help coming back to the dessert area for the choco fountain, cakes, and ice cream. The staff assigned to my table was very pleasing and sweet.

Review №32

Fine spot for tasty Buffet food. Visited about four, it was not full. Nothing but great experiences here.

Review №33

Buffet food, my preferred treat. Visited Fri evening I think. It has a great interior.

Review №34

If you want life to get back to normal you have support our businesses. Specifically if they are doing a good job. After weeks of no work and worry these restaurateurs are ready to provid a good product at a good price. Clean restrooms and constant wiping and sanitizing of the restaurant. Good job.

Review №39

Very bad service i waited for bake fish for 43 minutes then it told to manager he told to of the guys what he put the fish on the grilled and burn the fish and put sauce and he told its a bake fish I am not going to that restaurant any more.

Review №40

My top spot for quality buffet food. Very savory. Fast and courteous service.

Review №41

In Covid times the restaurant has more space between tables and instead of self-service its cafeteria style. The hired more people to serve, the things looks good in this place. It's well adapted to Covid times.

Review №42

Food was old, been sitting quite a while. Service people seemed annoyed. Used to be a fantastic place, it's gone significantly down hill.

Review №43

Good food. Open for dining. They serve you. Good sections and our waitress was in fire...

Review №44

Great food and great service!

Review №45

How you all going to give a selected amount of voucher out..... you all sad I won't be eating there anymore#veteran

Review №46

The food was decent it was very crowded it was hard to get around cuz I'm handicap people were seem to be in good spirits and the waitress waiter was pretty nice

Review №47

No question as 2 why this establishment is doing so well in every state of our union. It is clean, very good service, and most important the food was very good. We are not affiliated in any way to this place . I must say they never let our family down. Keep up the good work Golden Corral. We had lots of choice.

Review №48

Love the fact they have healthy options such as salads first thing in the morning. Our waiter was very attentive and kind. Looking forward to return for some prime rib.

Review №49

The absolutely best goden coral ive been to. I go to the corral in California and Vegas...first time to one in Texas...what a difference...the selection of food was great but most and i mean MOST of all it taste good. Everything i ate was prepared well. I actually felt like I've been cheated all these years in Cali and Vegas. Go here...enjoy here...good choice for the money. Golden corral managment if you read this you guys really need to fix this...there should be consistency because ill never enjoy your other locations now. The selection in Texas is just wrong in comparison to the afore mentioned states and this is why and only why i took a star....SMH!!!

Review №50

Buffet even while Covid! Great selection served by staff

Review №51

Amazing they have alot of foods and really good ice cream they were nice.

Review №52

Good visit. Hadn't been to buffet in quite a bit

Review №53

I love so much this place. You can take a delicious food for a low price. In this place you can find meat cuts, salads, stews and a delicious desserts. A very good option.

Review №54

It's my favorite place to go every time I go from Del Rio to San Antonio ️ Most definitely will visit again soon ️

Review №55

Buffet food at this location - delicious. It has a nice feel to it.

Review №56

The foods are so good and place are great. :)

Review №57

Five stars. I plan to go again soon.

Review №58

I recently visited this Golden Corral location for the first time and was not disappointed. The employees were friendly, the dining area clean, and most important, the food was great. Everything I tried was good, fresh, and hot. There was a pretty wide selection of food as well. I'll definitely eat here again in the future. Cheers to the staff!

Review №59

It's okay just some changes on the food but I will not go back I don't really recommended don't have very much variety as they used to be could be better

Review №60

Didn't have baked chicken or white meat in the fried chicken. No omelets, that's what i go for. I think I should get a refund for my last visit and all the sides were cold.

Review №61

This place is just ok, the food is not cook right, some of it is to salty! And the pot roast is dryed out, over cook. Substandard..

Review №62

Employees behind steam table dish up your selection. Seems to work just fine in my opinion.

Review №63

Eh. For the same price, I much prefer Asia Star buffet. Better selection, much better food. The only reason our group goes here is because they don't give us grief over some of the group having (very well-trained) service dogs.

Review №64

Food was no little of sub-par, would not try again.

Review №65

Went there on Thanksgiving...didnt like much of the food...good price

Review №66

Because they have good food thanks golden coral

Review №67

Great food .or should I say great staff.

Review №68

Food was excellent today but waitress was not attentive or short handed. Not really sure if we ever had a actual appointed 1 to our table

Review №69

The food is ok, it was our first time but don't think will be back

Review №70

Good food, due to the covid 19 restrictions, there is a limited menu. The food is still good though and they have the popular food items.

Review №71

Good food, ready to eat at a good price! Refills on water and soda came quickly upon request. Definitely will give this place a thumbs up and a second look!

Review №72

They wanted to charge me the adult price for my 13 year old son and it said that it was $7.99. The rice was also cold. I have always been eating at the restaurant when I was living in Utah, and this location is different.

Review №73

Quick to help me and the new way with social distances improving the serving process is the way it should be forever, so much cleaner and better organized

Review №74

The food tastes homemade. Would definitely come more often

Review №75

Great Service, Lovely People, Wonderful Food.

Review №76

The servers did wear face masks but there was no table closed in between each table. there was a party of four setting to my left where I could just about reach out and touch the table and there was a party of four sitting behind me that I could reach and touch their chair. The food was cold. We always like the Golden Coral but I was very very disappointedWe won't go back

Review №77

Pricing between noon and 4 is best and if come closer to 4 you have chance to eat the dinner menu at their best price too. Steaks are great on dinner menu. Generally the food is great too though there are times where it seems a lot has been sitting too long. Ironically it seems to be when they are busy and you would think being eaten quickly and fresh but maybe they make it before hand to prepare for busy hours. But there is a great selection of food and I love asking for a half cup of root beer to make root beer floats.

Review №78

I've eaten at all the Golden Corral restaurants in the Alamo City area. And each has a strong point. Recommended, especially for the pot roast, the spaghetti sauce and the music choice (Christian!) the last night I was recently there!

Review №79

It was great, not sure why the service was horrible today

Review №80

Change is strange. Food was good thou.

Review №81

The food was surprisingly very good. I had the steak with mushrooms, some green beans and mashed taters. For dessert I had some kind of blueberry pie sort of thing.I would give it 5 stars, but I saw some little kid coughing directly on the candied yams. DIRECTLY on them. I stopped a lady who scooped some yams onto her plate and summoned the manager to remove the yams and the two food trays adjacent to them. The manager did remove the contaminated food.I think Golden Corral needs ro do a better job of monitoring who goes up to the food... there is no reason some nasty little kid should be up there coughing on food. Shame on the lazy parents for not monitoring the kids. Golden Corral might need to install something to deter little kids from being able to reach the food.Good food.... don't think I'll be back though. Not until I'm assured that kids cannot access the food trays.

Review №82

Reasonable price. The steak was amazingly tasty. Very friendly staff. Kids love the chocolate fountain at the desert area. Overall, we had a great experience.

Review №83

I like visiting this restaurant. They have a wide variety at the salad bar & their main entree bar also has a variety of good selections. A trip to the dessert bar is always a nice way to end your meal.

Review №84

Great time enjoying the time with family members love it all together. $$$

Review №85

Good food, but it was honestly great for me to be catered to instead of being watched.

Review №86

When I went here, I truly understood the expression 'starved for choice' in a way I never have outside of a grocery store. There's so much here and it all looks good. You can make your own gosh darn tacos. I had some mac n cheese and cornbread, which was very good. Amd the dessert, oh my god. I had chocolate pudding and ice cream and a smile on my face and in my heart.

Review №87

Went for the first time in years. It's been slightly updated but the furniture still has a way to go. The food was fresh and tasted pretty good. Kinda like a fancy hotel breakfast I guess. The kinda hotel that delivers the food to your room on a tray not the buffet family kind. I'd eat here again, I'd rather try their dinner and lunch options. Those would probably be better. Over all good food and a friendly staff

Review №88

So far the best Golden Corral we've been to. Fresh fried fish and never the crispy burnt leftovers. My go to has always been the roast, its tender and not so much fat. I've been to plenty of GC were you have to "find" the meat, not here. PERFECT. Many options (unlike 2301 Pat Booker Rd...stay away)!!! Great staff.

Review №89

"Excellent service and quality food."

Review №90

Just visited june 7 2020 for the first time since covid started here, and I'm sorry but it was Terrible.They have a Lubys cafeteria style of serving in which you have to stand in a long line everytime you want a bite.The fried chicken seemed to be refried not fresh.I understand that everyone is trying to play it safe with this whole "Covid-19" thing but honestly if it was out here in that way it would be better to stay closed

Review №91

Its good, they do their best to keep it clean and safe.

Review №92

Always a big selection to choose from..fresh and taste delicious..

Review №93

I liked the food much better than before. And that 25%of was wonderful.

Review №94

This location is incredibly dusty. The service was great for it being really busy and the deserts and entrees were as expected but the green beans and other vegetable side dishes were obviously from a can. For a person $13.99 for dinner I think they could spring for fresh veggies.

Review №95

Little pricey on weekends , but lots & lots & lots of food to choose from . staff pleasant.

Review №96

The food was so good and nice .

Review №97

My favorite buffet. Great selection. Clean. Efficient. The rolls and desserts are my personal favorite. The price is affordable and I've never gone home hungry. Thanks for being there.

Review №98

I am a disabled veteran then going to Golden corral and veterans day for years went to one here in San Antonio for years they didn't have a car they didn't say they had a limit so we went there to get it tonight cuz it's kind of hard to move around during the day and we were denied service because they didn't have a card so I'm going to have to mark Golden corral off my veterans surprises and plus today's my Marine corps birthday I was a Marine thank you.

Review №99

I've never been before, lol. I will be back, it's pretty good. Breakfast was dank. Way better than cooking myself with all the choices.

Review №100

The food and service is just PERFECTION but the bad thing is that they changed grill cook ,the last one was a great guy ,he used to serve me THE BIGGEST BEST STEAK POSSIBLE ,and I gave him extra money ,but besides that yeah I recommend this place ,always worth the 2 hours of road ,I dont get why this doesn't have all 5 stars ,oh yeah ,it does ,people don't know what they're missing out on ,5 stars thanks!
