The food was mediocre at best. If all you want is a large quantity of food available this place is okay. Once I noticed how filthy the carpet was I could not help but wonder about the sanitary conditions elsewhere in the business. The dirtiest carpet I have ever seen in a place of business. (Carpet is not practical in... More

A good stick-to-your ribs breakfast. We had plenty of protein options, with eggs and bacon and sausage on the menu. There is a breakfast buffet with fruit and cereals and other options to boot - more than a person can or shold eat. Virginia is not the deep South, so the grits were the weakest part. The sausage was great.... More

This restaurant provides good food for your money. The night we were there was a seafood buffet. You could also order from a menu.

The restaurant is very basic but the food was varied and well cooked. We went on a steak and ribs night and had a very good steak cooked to our liking as well as helping ourselves to the buffet. Good value and good service.

We got there thinking it was like a Hometown Buffet like the chain restaurant, we got seated and to... More

Terrible buffet with greasy chicken and many unidentifiable items. Menu items were not much better. Big mistake!

Tried Hometown buffet for lunch for first time yesterday. The food was great and the price even better. For $7.50 we had a great selection of meat and vegetables. I did not try the soup or salad but it looked fresh. There were multiple soups and a large selection at the salad bar. I had the fried chicken and meat... More

To be fair, we visited pretty late when they were about to close down the buffet. Some food was a bit old and stale. But our server was friendly and over-the-top helpful, and the food selection was good. We got a discount of 10% because we were staying next door at the Red Roof. The building is a former Shoney's...
