Now I may have a soft spot in my heart for a Golden Corral Buffet. I have been to one a few times. But this was in Idaho when I went to visit my dad after my mom had passed away. This endless array of food was a highlight for him. And for me too. Who doesn't love all you can eat? When I knew we were going, I wouldn't eat all day! Ya know, get your money's worth!

So - what's a state gotta do to get themselves a Golden Corral? I think there are plenty of people who would fill the place. Don't believe me? Try going out on a Saturday to dinner anywhere in Portland WITHOUT a reservation. Good luck to ya!

Come on Golden Corral Buffet! Come to Maine! We promise to make it worth your while!
