    :blech: We haven't eaten at a Golden Corral for many years as we thought the cleanliness had gone down.

    I can't see me going back either :nono:

    Yeah, Golden Corral is not really a place anyone should be eating. I honestly don't know how they avoid food borne illnesses there. The public side of the buffet is bad enough with kids handling food with their bare hands and running their fingers through the chocolate fountain. Nasty to say the least.

    In this day and age where it seems some people have no regards for standard sanitary practices, we avoid any buffet at all costs. Just not worth it.

    You sure can. I worked at a quite famous local hotel as a chambermaid when I was 17/18 and it was an eye opener. I wouldn't stay there now! It charges around £200 per night!

    Yep! People always talk bad about The Waffle House around here. It may certainly employ some sketchy looking people but you SEE everything they are doing.

    This is very true Robert. The only reason I'm not a fan of buffets are that I ALWAYS see a patron do something gross. Never an employee.

    We now have. A star system in this country for hygiene ranging from 0-5. Before I eat somewhere I generally check that out. Food poisoning is a pretty serious thing, it has the potential to be so much more than just an upset tummy

    I agree that's the really scary thing.

    As Robert says, very hard to know what goes on in the back and would we eat anywhere if we knew :/ but when I see kids, and to be fair some less than clean looking adults, playing with the food in the buffets, that's very hard to ignore

    Most restaurants in the US are required to post their county health department inspection rating somewhere in a conspicuous place. Usually somewhere around the cash register. Around where I live, the scoring system is from 1 to 100. We generally won't eat anyplace that has a score less than 95. Because it's got to be prominently posted, the places seem to try to do a good enough job to keep their score up. Since a low score equals lost business. We had a place here in town that got a low score one time and it actually almost drove them out of business.

    Of course, none of this is a guarantee but it certainly seems to help. :shrug:

    Tom :)macwave:... your mileage may vary...)
