Golden Corral Weekend Breakfast Buffet

Golden Corral Weekend Breakfast Buffet

Finally, an excellent breakfast buffet in Springfield that doesn't cost $25!

The price for adults $7.39
Senior adults $6.79

We requested water for our beverage and found that juice and milk was included in the breakfast buffet.

They had I think 8 different kinds of juice there, along with chocolate and 2% milk.

Sadly, no chocolate fountain.

I didn't see oatmeal there, but I could've missed it.

They did have grits, so oatmeal might've been there and I just missed it.

There is soooo much there, my photos only cover a small portion of what is there.

My thanks to my breakfast buddies who waited for me to photograph their plates before they dug in. It wasn't easy for them to wait...Especially for their first plate!

Things I would add to this already fantastic buffet:

cinnamon and ginger powder for the waffles

walnuts and pecans for the salads...and for the pancakes and waffles

Option of pancakes and waffles that use whole wheat flour and ground flax seeds.

(don't worry, I'm not suggesting blueberry waffled eggs)

Unsweetened apple sauce for the pancakes and waffles

Stonyfield yogurt (no high fructose corn syrup that way)

Kefir (drinkable yogurt) - could also make fruit smoothies with it.

Whipped cream for the pancakes and waffles

Really healthy breakfast cereal

Skim milk

Some sort of tofu breakfast thing.

These are just suggestions. The breakfast buffet is wonderful already.

I'm just trying to add more fiber to the mix.

What would Dr. Oz want to add to it? Hmmmm.

Do you have your dinner receipt handy?

  1. Have enjoyed the Golden Corral lunch and dinner in Waukesha, Wisconsin for about 2 years on many occasions. It was Great! Notice I said 'was'. For the past 3 0r 4 months it has been on a steady decline. Salad items not fresh (greens turning brown) many containers remain empty for the duration of our visit - some of the dressing containers are empty and not refilled - likewise with soup pots and many other entree pans - the delicious ground meat patties have disappeared, portions of steak are doled out stingily - dessert bar is sloppy etc. My husband and I have returned about 3 or 4 times in the hope that someone will bring this once delightful buffet back to what it was but 2 days ago was the worst ever. We will not return to Golden Corral but will go back to "Old Country Buffet'.

  2. As a regular visiter to Ryans and Hometown or old Country Buffets, I would like to say. The quality of there food has went down hill for a while now. We eat out everyday at one or the other. But we have found that driving a little long to Golden Corral is well worth it. Why did they move all Golden Correls outside Kansas City? We really enjoy it there.
