lost a lot

It has been six months since we have eaten at this Golden Corral. It used to be the best in a multiple-state area; we’ve bragged about it for years.
What a difference six months make! It may have changed managers and the new one is bent on cutting costs. It is the only explanation, unless corporate is also pushing lower cost.

The dessert bar is very much worst. Substituting little dried out tarts for full blown pie slices must save a lot of money, but it drops the desserts into a skip-this-feature.

There used to be sliced steak pieces for salads, now only dried out chicken slices were available on the salad bar.

The Asian food bar has new orange-chicken pieces which are pretty good; the rest of the items are skipable as in “how long have these sat here”. Spring rolls were particularly awful.

Grilled steaks used to be fork tender, now you definitely need a steak knife to attack them.
We ate about five-thirty pm, right in the midst of the supper service. One would expect fresh service at that time, not the consistent dried food that was served.

Golden Corral must have changed the oil used in cooking—-there was a definite unpleasant after taste as we walked away from the restaurant.

I do not remember seeing the assistant managers who used to “hover” on the floor. Maybe they are gone, lost to cost cutting? We had one dirty-plate-picker-upper who saw us once during dinner. Either she wasn’t pushed [by the missing managers] to do more, or cost cutting eliminated the other picker-uppers and she was working to the best of her capacity.

All in all the food was mediocre enough we will not be back to this restaurant!
