For the price that you pay at Hometown Buffet, you might as well go any place that you really want to go to. I hate coming to the one in Rialto, Where people let their kids act like animals at the zoo. Kids yelling, running around, standing on chairs, When does it end?. Makes me just want to get up...

Well, I did try the new stir fry they have been advertising. it's pretty dry and pretty plain. Way worse than I thought it would be. I even asked for beef And chicken. It was just O.K.

Had not been to an Home Town buffet in several years and they still haven't improved. Steak was cold and tough. No fresh vegs- only can corn and green beans. Denny's would have been better

Tired but has quite a variety of food. Some of the top line of meat is either "wait for it to come out for a while" or has been under the lights for some time. Looking for an inexpensive meal with variety? This place is for you. Good on your budget

Parents letting their little ones run around, grabbing food with their bare hands, making messes and running into people, etc, just makes me angry. One child did this after sneezing and wiping his nose with his hand. I just left, couldn't take it anymore. It's just gross. I also witnessed one girl putting food wrapped in napkins, into her mother's... More

Although we had read a negative review one person in our group of 4 wanted to try it. We were so glad we did. Starting with the Clam chowder soup- creamy, clammy and a hint of a spice we loved. The Bourbon chicken continued the nicely seasoned surprises. My wife found the baked chicken very good when usually it is... More

More of a fun place to pig out than anything else. Foods ok. The desserts are good. Cheese cake is the best

I had to give 4 stars because of the value and the fact that it is my son's favorite eatery place.

My husband and I went here one night when we were really hungry. The food was a step above cafeteria food. The steak cuts were rubbery, small, and unavailable most of the time. The food was greasy and chewy from being under the heat lamps. I would never go here again.
