Meat and three. Very busy and have been for years. Food is alright but I wouldnt say it is anything really special. Fried Green Tomatoes are the highlight.

We went there to eat lunch after church. Hamburger steak and country fried steak are some of our favorites. Everything was delicious. I am taking off one star because the country fried steak wasn't hot, but barely warm.

The food was good. Not the greatest. It was set up like a cafeteria and one could pick a meat (or 2) and vegetables. They had pineapple casserole which is a unique, southern find!

I enjoy going to a buffet where you can see and select. There's a special bonus when you see that you've selected tasty food. I've never been disappointed at Home Plate Diner. It's always good food--just like good home cooking without the bother.

Food is OK, a bit bland for my tastes and a lot of fried items. Cobbler pie is good. Lots of seating space and quick service. We go only occasionally, when someone else suggests it.

When I went there, we ordered chicken fried steak, fried okra, mashed potatoes. I couldn't believe how good it was. Little surprised at the prices though. We paid about 10 dollars per person.

I would normally rate this diner a 4 out of 5. However, it just happened that, the last time we visited, the regular cook was in the hospital. The fill in over seasoned the food with too much salt for my liking. I wish their cook a speedy recovery. Again, I do think this is a 4 star diner! The... More

My wife and I stopped in for the first time last Sunday mid-afternoon. We were surprised by how many folks were there during what we thought would be an off time. Lots more came while we were there and everybody was promptly taken care of. The steam table line went very quickly and we found a dining table right away.... More

The usual meat + three type of menu that is okay. Problem is they seems to not give some of the dishes time to cook properly. Squash casserole is usually runny/soupy. Some days they have more bean choices than actual vegetables. The dinner rolls need more time to rise and their corn bread is sweet and seems more like dessert... More
