Glad you made it out safely. I’ve never been to one, but knowing it’s an all-you-can-eat, I figured it’s probably cheap generic food.
All I’ve heard is the horror stories about their chocolate fountain. People sticking their fingers in to dip their food, instead of using the tongs.
I may have gotten lucky but yeah, I took one look at that chocolate fountain and give it a hard pass. Without even hearing any stories you can just imagine how that could go wrong in a restaurant that was SWARMING with little kids.
Being a Brit, I’ve never gone to a Golden Corral, but we have some terrible chain establishments too, which survive for years, despite nobody ever admitting to having eaten there.
So I get the riffs, by proxy. I just mentally translate “Golden Corral” to “Harvester” or something similar.
Sounds like it’s time for Golden Corral to jump across the pond and introduce you to a bad example of American food.
We have a fair few US imports already in the bad food & drink sector, just not that one.
I have lived in the US for 9 of the last 10 years, and I think I know what Golden Corral would be like, but I’ve never actually been to one. I’m picturing Dennys but with a western theme and a buffet? Am I close?
The one I went to (Tucson AZ) did not have much of a western theme. It’s just a really big buffet of mostly American heartland food. Not one big line but different sections, like a fried food section and a desert section and a fried food section and a salad section and a fried food section. Lots of carbs.
If you’ve ever been to a Sizzler salad bar, like that but bigger and with the ratio of fried food to salad reversed.
Looks like maybe you missed one of the fried food sections. I think there’s one further down the hall past the restrooms, right beside the marshmallow fluff fountain.

I made a few long-overdue updates to the list (in bold).

Eventually, we’ll be able to move on to Denny’s jokes.
There’s one of those exchanges from a South African bargain-basement action movie which MR_Potroast and I are compelled to reenact every single time we drive by that establishment. I don’t even remember which movie it’s from. I just know it from someone’s RT highlight reel.
I remember a few that have combined both Golden Corral and this guy in the same joke.
