Reviewed December 29, 2012

The food that was supposed t be hot was cold and the staff was busy talking. Cleaning by food was a little scarry.

“Quality Buffet”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Very good quality food with a very large selection to choose from. You have the choice of American, Oriental, Mexican plus a great salad bar.
Very large variety of deserts also. If you leave this place hungry, it's your fault.

“Not bad for a buffet”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

I don't like buffet restaurants because the food is usually like something out of a school cafeteria. But I was surprised, there was the usual stuff and there was some really good food like the chinese spare ribs and the meat loaf. Don't disregard this little spot in Turlock, it's worth the money and the staff is really nice.

“My Favorite Restaurant”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Home Town is my Favorite Restaurant. Aside from the great selection and reasonable pricing, the staff are friendly and to see them eating the same food they serve (while on break) gives me confidence. About a year ago someone reported a fly in the jello and the manager had the entire thing throw out which is how it should be. Restaurant is kept clean and was recently remodeled - and we love the new Family Night each Thursday with Balloons for the kids and prizes for the whole family.
