Golden Corral, a new buffet in Bakersfield, has been open for a few months. They serve pot roast, pizza, and have a chocolate fountain to dip fruit into.

The Golden Corral is as busy now as it was when it first opened a couple months ago. Which isn’t much of a surprise since their food is amazing.

The prices aren’t so bad since they do offer a lot in return. The one thing I really disliked was that drinks are sold separately.

Once you sit down the only way to get a refill is for your server to get it. This wouldn’t have been so bad if the place wasn’t packed, but it took a while to get a refill.

First off, the eighth wonder of the world, a.k.a. their chocolate fountain, was a little disappointing because all the hype about it made it seem humongous.

Don’t get me wrong it’s big, just not eighth wonder of the world big.

I did have fun dipping   pineapple, marshmallows and strawberries in it.

All of which were delicious.  They also offer cotton candy and different flavor ice creams, not just vanilla and chocolate. Home Town Buffet can’t compete with their dessert selection.

For the real food, everything I had was good. Their Awesome Pot Roast has a fitting name because it’s one of the best I’ve ever had.  Their macaroni and cheese was just okay but was a little dry. Their sirloin steak more than made up for it.

It has a bright atmosphere, and the servers were very polite. When something ran out, like pizza, they did a very good job of refilling it. Overall, I was very impressed and I can’t wait to go back, when it’s less crowded though. I can’t wait to see what they have for breakfast.

4/5 stars
