“Great selection and cheap”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We are currently visiting the NJ/NY area and were looking for somewhere cheap to eat. This place sounded good from the two reviews. It is only a 10 minute drive from our motel so off we went. Easy enough to find but Google Maps has it very wrong. The HomeTown Buffet is located on Fulton Street, Edison - the map on the HomeTown Buffet website is accurate but the address is a bit misleading. We arrived at the restaurant just after 6pm on a Saturday. There were an awful lot of cars in the carpark. Inside there must have been at least 200 people. There is a great selection of foods, something for everyone. Salads, Mexican, pasta, roast, chicken, fish, very fresh bread rolls, baked potatoes...you name it and it is probably there. There is also a really nice range of desserts. For the two of us with no drinks it cost $25.59 including tax. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast costs $6 something plus tax. Can't remember how much lunch is.

“You must go here at least once, what a place”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We found this place by accident as it is tucked away behind another eating-house. We paid under $26.00 for the two of us. The place was packed (it was fathers day) but many staff were clearing tables and sweeping the floors therefore the whole area was clean. I have been to buffets before but not one like this. I headed for the roast meat area (5 different meats) and as I the server was slicing meat for me I was asked if I wanted a steak to go with it silly question I said with a grin moving on to the veg I found a vast choice and my wife enjoyed the salad later. In addition various other types of food was available. I guess I came off my diet and had two meals. Then the dessert bar came into view hot and cold what a choice.

To sum up really good food clean place eat as much as you want. What else can you ask for OH yes low cost. This place is a must

“Lots of food choices”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

This restaurant is buffet style and usually crowded but the wait isn't more than 10 minutes if there's a line. Good selection of food. I love the fried chicken and mashed potatoes. The salad bars (2) are really yummy as is the choice of usually 3 soups. Very reasonably priced, especially if you sign up on their list and get coupons every so often.
