Great food but hard to find gluten free selections as they are not labeled. Kind of a guess without asking.

The food at this buffet is just average. However, for our group, its advantage is that it offered something for everyone. We had a child, a person who had to stay on a strict gluten free diet, a person who had to avoid both dairy and gluten, a diabetic and some with no restrictions. Everyone found enough to eat while...

We had just finished visiting Salt Creek Falls and on our way to Yachats – the start of our Oregon Coast adventure. We were passing Springfield on the I5 when we saw the shopping mall. The mall is about 66 miles (107 kilometres) from the Falls. After some quick shopping at the mall, we had a choice to make a... More

This is by far my fave place to eat as far as a good budget eatery. The rest of my family is not fond of it as they refer to it as "jail food". Well, lock me up because I love it! Breakfast is heaven! Bacon everywhere you look and an assortment not seen anywhere else!

Love this place, plenty of everything. Service very good. We have to travel 2 hours to get here, but still a favorite place or me.

I hadn't been to this store for a couple years and now I remember why. The coffee and the strawberry bananas weren't bad. Can't say that for everything else. The hot items were all below 160 degrees and the cold above 40. This was pitiful; rubber eggs, WAY over cooked bacon fragments and flavorless"country gravy". I wasn't expecting much but... More

I will never complain about the food, all of the comfort foods you can hope for and lots of desert choices. But this location is in a remodeled mall and it looks rundowned compared to mall. Torn seats and booths. The ladies bathroom was so nasty. No one washes the walls or fixures. They were covered in grim, boogers and... More

This is one of the better buffetts, after a remodel and addition of some food stations. Drink stations now serve Icees, fancier coffees also. Seniors get a discount. Go before the lunch prices end and make it the best all you can eat deal in town.

I think that the Hometown Bufet is a great place too eat, because of great customer service, with great meals. I have eaten at The Hometown Bufet for many years.

I've been to many HBs in various parts of the country and this one is particularly good. Perhaps it's the lack of unruly kids that decide to use their hands to serve themselves or overcooked meats, etc. Regardless, the carving server is absolutely delightful: friendly and almost sounds like he personally cooked it himself and hopes you enjoy it. Overall,... More
