Variety at the Golden Corral

The Golden Corral is featuring a different theme every night of the week. This is a special promotion and may or may not be continued, but it is worth a visit while it lasts. Each day of the week is a different theme feature.

Sunday is Carver's Night and the feature is carved meats - turkey, ham, chicken, roast beef, and then they add seafood, ribs, and smoked sausage. Monday is Shrimp Night with shrimp prepared in many ways. Tuesday is Family Night and the menu is hotdogs, steakburgers, three kids of pizza, meatballs, and Italian sausage. Wednesday night is Mexican Favorites Night and that means tacos, enchiladas, tomalles, fajitas, and chipolte chicken. Thursday night is BBQ Night with pork and beef ribs, brisket or pulled pork, smoked sausage, pork chops, and BBQ chicken. Friday is Fish Fry Night. There is breaded and fried fish, shrimp, and clams. Saturday ends out the week with Steak and Steak Night. Of course, there is steak, but there is also pork steak, chopped steak, and chicken fried steak. If you don't like steak there is also turkey.

Old Country Buffet and Ryan's both vary their menus nightly, but not with this theme idea. When OCB has a featured theme it is usually for a month or two with the season - and that means summer at OCB. They have had barbecue themes and tex-mex themes. This new promotion at Golden Corral is putting it all together in the week - every week. It may not last long, but it does look good right now. (Too bad the nearest Golden Corral is about 400 miles away from me.)


Old Country Buffet is having special promotions for Valentines Day. There will be photos taken of you and your Valentine (or your whole family). There is a special vacation drawing and a free lunch for married couples of 50 years or more (not so out of the ordinary if you have ever had lunch at an OCB and seen who is eating then.)

Ryan's website also mentions Valentine's Day but specifies nothing special or any promotion.

All of the web sites for these restaurants are located at the side of this article.
