I had the roast beef and mashed while my friends enjoyed the homemade biscuits and gravy and omelettes. The service was fast and friendly and very accommodating. The country ham was a bit salty to the point we couldn't finish it. That was our only complaint. Just a good down home place!!

I have been looking for a meat and 3 nearby...this was great...reminded me of Arnold's country kitchen...i mean this isn't fine dining but for a homestyle cooked meal...southern style... this fit the bill. Close to Madison, Rivergate area...also a cute like outdoor patio great for summer!

Found by accident and glad we did. A good breakfast for $5. Bacon and eggs cooked just right. Super friendly staff. Family owned. Kid friendly. Offer daily lunch and dinner on Friday. Excellent coconut cream pie (all home made daily). So nice we went back Friday night for dinner.

I don't know how anyone could say this place is worth a second visit! I ordered grilled chicken spinach casserole & yams. Everything seemed as if it was cooked days ago & just kept on warmer since! Nothing even looked good & taste was far far worse. I has been told it wasn't what it used to be & its... More

The Hometown Cafe is now Ruby's. It is not owned or managed by the same people. Only open now for breakfast and lunch. Prices are better than Hometown. Food is southern cooking. Meat and three for lunch. Typical breakfast fare for the south.

This restaurant has been through a lot of changes. Since Papa has taken over, he and the enire staff has worked very hard to make it a place where everyone can come at any time to enjoy great food in a homey atmosphere. I visit several times a week, either by myself for coffee and a quick lunch, Saturday breakfast,... More

Well, it's really kind of hard to mess up breakfast, but it's probably not the place you want to go if you don't like eggs for breakfast (like my breakfast companion), as other selections are fairly limited. We opted for French toast with strawberries. The strawberries were previously frozen, so not great, but all in all, it was a very... More
