I love this restaurant! This was my 3rd visit but 4th time in the area. The one time I didn’t eat at the Home Place restaurant was because it was closed. Great value and excellent quality. It’s worth the drive if you’re in the region.

First things first expect a wait . This place fills up quickly because it has limited hours and days it is open. Prices are extremely fair - $14-$16 for all you can eat. It is family style which means they keep refilling your bowls for...More
