I saw a local newspaper article featuring this location, I like buffet restaurants, but under current conditions they are an endangered species. Here, they still allow for "all you can eat." But the servers get everything for you. The offerings are nothing really fancy. But...it was very good. I wondered how the service would be, since they now have significantly more responsibilities. But it was also outstanding.More

A really overpriced buffet where the food is just average or worse and dries out quickly. Once was a great place but no longer.

It was mine and my fiance's first visit to Home Folks restaurant and I will say it was delicious. The food is good hot and plentiful and if you leave there hungry it's your fault. We will be going back as soon as possible. They...have made repeat customers out of us.More

This place is always busy and has pretty good southern food. I am not sure it is 5 stars worthy though. The fried chicken was good. The orca was very good. The Salisbury steak was quite bland. Cornbread was dry and hard. Wait staff was...friendly. For $12 a piece for lunch, I guess I was expecting a little better food and maybe higher quality environment.More

For the value and variety of food, you can’t beat Home Folks restaurant. Mostly southern comfort food is served. There is always a crowd.

Truly, Home Folks wasn't bad. It just wasn't great. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant. The fried chicken was fine, not great. Believe it or not, but the sweet tea was too sweet. Okra was good, as were the desserts. Overall, it was....fine.

I looked back to see when my last review on this restaurant was: Two years ago this April. No change from the last review. I fail to see the attraction of their food OTHER than there is a lot of it. See you in another...two years.More

We always go to Home Folks as a family of about 10 and they always make room for us to sit together, or at least close together. The food is WONDERFUL, Southern, home cooking - as my brother-in-law says, "It's what Cracker Barrel tries to...be." The staff makes you feel right at home, they never rush, and the food is always fresh, no matter what time you arrive.More
