Meat left outside beside the dumpsters to get past inspection.

Some of the smorgasbords down in this part of the state are pretty damn awesome. Now that you are in Plymouth Meeting, Shady Maple Smorgasbord is less than an hour away from you.

lol Golden Corral is commenting on the YT in defense:

In regard to this video currently being circulated by an employee of Golden Corral please note the following:
1. The food in the video was never served to a single customer.
2. All of the food was thrown away immediately.
3. The employee in the video participated in disposing of the food.
4. The employee in the video, through his father, offered to sell the video.
5. The manager at the restaurant was terminated.

What is the problem with getting rid of old food before an inspection? I'm sure its worth disposing of your older food that is still perfectly fine rather than have it there during an inspection.

That said, Golden Corral is awful.

I went to GC once. I felt genuinely sad being in there. It's America's feeding trough. Not a single person there wasn't obese.

In a broad sense, no, the food was not terrible. It was MSG infused goodness. However, I personally have 2 different viewpoints on "good food". 1 would be stuff like GC. Nothing but carbs, MSG, tons of sauces, cheese, etc. A stoner's meal if you will. The other would be more refined. A nice cut of NY Strip, seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, and thyme, grilled to medium rare perfection, served with a slow baked potato and sauteed asparagus.

Well, what he was alleging is that they weren't getting rid of the food, that they were keeping it out by the dumpster until the inspection was over and then bringing it back in.

That said, you get what you pay for at those places. Might as well just eat at McDonalds.

If they were just throwing the bad food out for inspection then why did the manager get fired? I don't get it.

As soon as I saw they all added a "Chocolate fountain" I just pictured all the disgusting fingers that would be inserted into it. So yeah, no GC for me.

Thats exactly what I was assuming. I have trouble believing that they actually put that out there with the intent of bringing it back. I would bet anything against that being that location's policy, much less a company wide policy, for handling inspection time.

Haven't been there for years but have had mostly bad experiences every time I've eaten there with rude staff or patrons.
