    We went to Ruth Chris in Mexico cos it said USB there and it was delish, But but but and you're gonna kill me.... I hate paying for stuff if I know I can get it cheaper and just as good at Corral. The steak here is like shoe leather sometimes. Our rump steak is awful, always hit and miss as to if it's going to be tender or not and I don't like bashing it to make it tender as it seems to leave it tasteless. We stick to sirlion or fillet here but fillet is so expensive here.

    The first time I had steak in America I was absolutely stunned.... it was the best steak I'd ever had in my life, you seriously don't know how lucky you are. Pity you can't bring it back to UK cos you have to declare it

    At least you've had some decent steak! I can't compare the two (GC and RC's) but if you are happy with it, that's what matters.

    we tried a Golden Corral in Brunswick Georgia for the first time when DS was training with the Feds. It was wonderful!! Sooo, I assumed in my ignorance that all chains are created equally, so to our joy on the way home we spotted one in Pennsylvania and eagerly stopped to enjoy our meal. SO NOT!! It was dirty, disgusting, awfulll!! We were horrified. Out we went and headed to another place, Blechh! lesson learned, they all are different but I imagine that the ones near Disney are kept up better.

    I'm such a picky eater that I love buffets, as I know I will find something that I can enjoy, even if it's just a salad.

    GC has some of the best bourbon chicken. Yes, there was this chinese place that I use to go to in Indiana that had the BEST, but GC is pretty close. I fill up on that as I can never find bourbon chicken.

    We go earlyish as they are putting the trays out fresh and we love being able to get mash and veges and gravy. I guess it's something you have to try to know whether you like it enough to go back or not.

    We ate breakfast at two different restaurants last year and were very happy with what we got, much better than Ponderosa. Claire had tea there one day aswell and was happy with her meal.

    Well I'll give you that, Jodie! Golden Corral beats Ponderosa and Sizzler hands down!
