I love the variety of foods. They change the food frequently so you don't have to wonder how long it's been there. Plenty of seating and easy to find drinks, condiments etc. Some buffets feel cramped but this is spacious so you are not sitting in someone elses booth.

I am not fond of buffet restaurants, but my 14 year old grandson is. He can easily eat three plates of food and remain very thin. He loves the fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and potatoes. He enjoyed the salad bar (made 2 trips), and of course, the dessert table. This is definitely a place to take children.

This is your typical buffet style place. Prices are fairly priced and the food was good. Service i received was good as well. If your looking for a buffet style meal for lunch, brunch or dinner it doesnt hurt to check it out

We go here about once every six or eight weeks. Hometown had fallen down in our ratings because the meat was dry. But I'm sure they have gotten a new cook in the last couple months because the meat is wonderful. The last time we were there the dessert menu was pretty bad. They do offer non-sugar desserts, but I... More

Got coupons and decided to check it out. It was our first visit and upon entering we were greeted and given an overview of everything. There was a mirror so I thought it was larger then it really was. Salad stuff was great. I loved the soup. The meats were ok not so exciting. Desert was fine. I may visit... More

Check the paper for coupons and head on down for a very nice selection. My favorite is the steak (when available and med-rare) and shrimp. Huge salad bar, plenty of drink selections, and desserts are plentiful too.
