Place is a mess most of the time

I'm sure they try to up keep this location, but they really need to invest in up dating and keeping the buffet cleaner. The food doesn't look as appetizing as the advertising. This place has room to improve.

Food selection was average. Some food dishes were cold, others had not been refilled in a timely fashion. Cleanliness is not a priority at this location. Price is average. Noise level is very high

We went here for dinner on Friday night at around 18:30. Paying was easy and we chose our own table. The choice is massive and the quality seemed good, I started with a small salad and then moved on to jacket potatoes, I had three of these as they tasted really good. I didn't try anything else as I'm a... More

Home Town Buffet is the place to dine when you really do not know what you want to eat. I always start with the soup as appetizer. The first time there I had the corn chowder, the next time the sea food chowder. They were both good. Since there is a wide variety, one is able to sample as many... More

They just don't care about the quality of the food they put out, when you say something about the food they just look at it

The staff is great here and the manager was so kind and friendly. the food presented was a bit "raked through" and they were trying to keep up with keeping the pans clean and full..but this is a popular place with families and thats the problem really.

Home Town Buffet is Home Town Buffet. If you've been to one, you've been to them all. Cheap, lots of food, huge selection, located in high traffic areas, but the quality of the food is about what you'd expect in such a cheap place. On the bright side you'll never leave here hungry!

I know Home Town does not have a great reputation but after visiting this one I see why. The place is right inside the Mo Val Mall which is bad in itself. The booths are dingy, sticky, and just gross!!! The buffet itself leaves something to be desired!! There are children running around just doing whatever! I have a son... More

Tucked away on the bottom floor of the east end of the Moreno Valley Mall near the transit center, the Home Town Buffet (HTB) beckons the truly hungry and gives Mom - or Dad - a chance to please nearly everyone without having to do the dishes. You'll need to arrive early to get the freshest buffet offerings and the... More
