“Ughh!”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

I was excited to find a buffet in this area, but it failed miserably. There were plenty of empty tables, but all of the booths were dirty and had not been tended to by the staff. We went in shortly before the dinner hour and got the lunch price. I was glad we didn't pay more for this. The further in we walked towards the opposite wall, the worse the smell was. As we reached the last aisle, the smell was like a rotting corpse. My husband walked to the additional room they had and it was much better, as far as smell. I still had reservations about eating, since they obviously didn't care about the cleanliness of the dining room, I would probably be horrified to inspect their kitchen habits as well. I can not imagine how a company would stay in business when they put no effort into cleanliness, and the management obviously did not care. I have never written such a scathing review, but this was beyond disgusting, no seconds chances from me on this one.. I will not return.

“A good find”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

While shopping at a near by clothing store I happend to see the Home Town Buffet in the same strip mall. The service staff was very pleasant and the restaurant was clean and cozy.
I especially liked the way the sections were partitioned. It made you feel you were dining more privately and the acoustics was good so you did not hear a lot of noise.

The food was average but it was ample. I later found that Home Town Buffet has a club that you can enroll and they send you special offers. That is a nice perk which will bring me back.
