I went to Golden Corral once. Never again.

And this is from someone who loves Old Country Buffet. So clearly I have a low bar.

I'm assuming you got it at the Portofino Restaurant? They used to have very good food 10 years ago, but I've noticed their quality went way down since. That used to be my go to restaurant at the park. Now, I won't even eat there.

Golden Corral's are usually pretty good in the Phoenix area where I live. Definitely better than Midway Market. We still like to hit Midway Market as I have picky kids that like the food there.

We know most parks are not making gravy from scratch, and that's a problem. It's like the sushi place at Great Adventure... I would laugh at anyone for even considering buying sushi from a Six Flags. But on top of that Italian food is just generally so heavy... I can't imagine eating a bunch of spaghetti and then wanting to do anything other than sleep.

I completely agree with you here, but the NE doesn't have a monopoly on good Italian food. Chicago and St. Louis both have a long history of Italian immigrants that has created a strong Italian culture in these cities.

When you come to St. Louis, eat at Favazzas. You're welcome.

I don't think the argument was whether the food was good vs great vs palatable... regardless of how good it is, it's just weird to me to eat fast-casual spaghetti in an amusement park. Like... who craves amusement park spaghetti? Obviously some, since they exist. I dunno. Then again I never understood the concept of Fazollis, either.

Dear god I hope golden corral would be better than Midway Market. I haven't been to one since I was a wee lad. Don't plan on changing that anytime soon.

Damn, now I want some Lasagna.

That's probably what I mean. The place down on the lake... I thought it was really good. Perhaps I just had a taste for spaghetti.

Well, no one ever comes to St. Louis... but yea. Favazzas is great.

I'm also laughing at the use of "quality" and "Golden Corral" in the same thought. Emily and I call it the hog trough.

Trust me, I think Golden Corral is complete and utter garbage.

It's also a step or 3 above the quality that was found at Midway Market. That's how low my opinion is for what was served at Midway Market.
