Having started with one small steakhouse, Golden Corral Corporation has grown into one of the nation's strongest family restaurant chains. The ability to adapt to changing tastes allowed Golden Corral to continue growing during the 1980s and 1990s as changes in eating habits and increased competition brought drastic change to the family steakhouse business. Success continued in the 2000s as well--by 2003 the company operated and franchised 467 restaurants throughout the United States, serving 167.5 million guests that year.

  1. My wife loves golden corral broccoli cheese soup. So I found this recipe and she said it was dead on. I make this in my instant pot with the slow cooker for 4 hours.

  2. Instead of using my slow cooker, I made this soup on the stove-top and we were eating soup 20 mins. later. Delicious recipe. Fast and easy. I'm always skeptical of copycat recipes, but this soup is just like the Broccoli Cheese Soup at Golden Corral.

  3. GC broccoli cheese soup contains pork. It says so on the placard. Weird
