Golden Corral returning to London in March

Mar. 1—A favorite family eatery and meeting place is returning to London later this month, joining three other new restaurants.

Golden Corral is under new ownership and management and is looking to renovate their 50-year-old concept with new and favorite menu items. Located on Kings Way off KY 192, it will offer a remodeled building with a new exterior, larger windows, stacked stone fireplaces, a redesigned buffet serving area and multiple seating areas to give customers a relaxing and fulfilling dining experience.

This is a new prototype for the business, which will also offer a healthy food section in addition to their long-time favorites. The new and improved Golden Corral is slated to open in late fall.

Pizza lovers will also have a new treat later this week. The Pizza Station will open on Friday, March 3, in the former Heavenly Pizza spot beside Regency 8 Cinema off KY 192.
