The St. Joseph Golden Corral is open from 10 to 6 serving traditional Thanksgiving favorites.
"It's a big privilege and an honor to feed people on a holiday, especially Thanksgiving," General Manager Chris Jones said.
The restaurant expected nearly 1,500 people over a six hour period.
Some that were eating at the restaurant decided to eat out to save from having to cook.
"Well my Nana was going to cook, so then my mom gave (her) this idea so (she) wouldn't have to if we went to Golden Corral," customer Dalton Mitchell said.
The restaurant also had a carry-out option for those wanting to take their meal home.
