Skip it. Don't go. I first enjoyed a Golden Corral meal in Atlanta, GA. I thought I died and gone to heaven. Fresh beef cooked to order with the grill man standing the grill. Green beans done three different ways. Potatoes whipped, braised, baked, fried, sweet potatoes, turkey, chicken my oh my thought was in that great Smorgasbord in the sky. Desserts were still in the pie plates and cake platters, enough to fill to pool tables. mmmm...mmmm. This was in 2005 and every Golden Corral I tried in the South was the same caliber. Got back home and started looking for one on the West coast. The only one in Calif was over 200 mi away, so when one opened within 120 miles I could not wait. First time was 2011 and was I disappointed. The din of the music and patrons was deafening (the music was sedate in GA, the people could talk in quite whispers at their table). The meat was over cooked and dried out, no where near the choice of in the South. The dessert was in a carnival atmosphere. I tried again in 2012 and could not finish my meal. This buffet is not a one star...it has no where near the class of the ones back South. Go to Hometown Buffet, better food though very crowded.
Bud's never disappoints! While it's not a buffet, the portions are huge and you won't leave hungry. I order the same thing every time and never tire of it: a French dip ($8.99) with dipping sauce and a side of fries ($2.49) with seasoning salt. Their meats are all hand-carved to order and hot. A good choice if in the mood for comfort-food. The place isn't fancy by any means -- cafeteria-style with trays to pick up your items.
