If there was one word I could use for this place, it would be ...filthy. The girl at the messy front counter was really nice.

The place was not busy at all and there was no excuse for how dirty it was. The bathroom had trash strewn all over the floors. The dining room had numerous tables that were not cleaned after the last guests left - so many that a customer had to ask someone to clean a table so she could sit down.

There was bits of debris all over the dining area carpet and under the tables.

One of the employees was sitting in the dining room eating and talking on her cell phone.

The selection of food was very disappointing. Most of the vegetable selections seemed to be canned food. I had to walk around the food a few times before I found anything that I wanted to eat.

There was a man running around telling employees to fill this food and that food and to make sure the hot tables were clean but what about the rest of the restaurant?

There was also a stench somewhere that we could not pinpoint.

Unfortunately this was a dreadful experience.

On a whim we decided to go to HomeTown for breakfast this morning after having not been there for a significant time. We had stopped going there for several reasons, change of policies, declining quality, general cleanliness. We were pleasantly surprised as changes for the better seem to have been made. The food tasted fresher than we remembered, the staff was friendlier, and the general condition seemed to be better than the last time we were there. We'll have to see if this is a continuing trend or if it was just a "lucky" visit.

Any food that has to sit in ice or warming trays and wait for people to come serve themselves, is going to suffer. This is an above average cafeteria experience. The staff do make an effort to refresh the foods, clean the tables and answer questions. There is a large variety of different foods to choose from so you can probably find something to your liking. Good place for children who are picky eaters. Tables and chairs are comfortable and interior does not get overly loud. Clean nice restrooms. Good place for families to get value for their money.
