    Ryan's closed.... Golden Corral???

    My mom said that when she went to meet with some family for dinner at Ryan's they were hauling out boxes of stuff and a work crew was removing the big Ryan's sign...


    Now I have no idea, but my inner food lover is saying maybe Hattiesburg is finally getting a Golden Corral?

    Never have figured out how Ryan's stayed open as long as it did.

    Don't know about Golden Corral opening, but I wish someone else would open here that does a decent breakfast.

    Give the Bagel Shop downtown a try. The best omelet in town and their loaded breakfast sandwiches on the bagels are great too.

    Thanks. I will. The Pastry Garden does a breakfast menu, but only on Saturday morning.

    Re: Ryan's closed.... Golden Corral???

    I truly dislike buffets to unless there is a super high food rotation. it is a phobia I developed during my last pregnancy. I will honestly gag at the thought of eating food off of one
    I hope, that when I die, I've lived my life in such a way that people are sad to see me go.

    I agree, buffets are gross...

    The only buffet I will consider eating is Boom Town's.

    I can't get past the thought of people coughing or sneezing on UNcovered Fooods....or nasty children reaching up and grabning a fistful of something and putting it back.... slimy, snotty dirty children (I have two, I can judge)
    I hope, that when I die, I've lived my life in such a way that people are sad to see me go.

    Buffets are for when you're hungry and not at home and you don't have much time. Movie Star in OG and Mom and Dad's in Petal are exceptions. Those are for when your inner fat kid takes over and you want fried chicken and peach cobbler. Even in the buffet world, places like Ryan's and GC are bottom of the barrel. I worked at a GC when I was about 17 and there ain't nothin special happening in that kitchen. I did make some good cinnamon rolls from scratch there. That's the only thing I remember that was any good.

    I like Golden Corral. We love the one in Mobile, I think one in Hattiesburg would do well. ... Boom Town buffet is good too.

    We eat at Golden Corral in Gulfport fairly often...sometimes it is good, sometimes not. However, that can be said for most restaurants.

    I also like the Golden Corral in Gulfport,but to me the best little buffet around here is Mom and Dad's in Petal. There food is always great now that the original owns have taken it back. All of you that have not been there should really try it soon. you want be sorry.

    The most obese state in the nation definately needs another buffet.

    You have been to Flowood one haven't you? That's a true gathering of the swine. Nobody has ever eaten at a buffet and not eaten way too much. Famous words, "gotta get my money's worth." A Golden Corral in Hattiesburg will probably do well.

    Golden Corral is just Ryan's with a cowboy hat. Bring a fly swatter.

    They need to tear that building down and start over. It was a health hazard the last time we went there a year or two ago. Actually heard a waitress say "he forgot to use soap in the dishwasher". Yeah, I know, any buffet could be considered a health hazard with the germs and the amount of fatty/greasy foods.

    If you want to see Mississippi at it's finest, go to Golden Corral in Flowood about 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon.
