My family loves eating here as you have so much to choose from as they have a salad bar, fruit bar, pasta bar, potatoe bar, seafood, comfort food, usually two different types of meat like prime rib or pork roast or ribs or all of them. plus desserts that are outstanding. and anything you could think of to drink.

Food was fine, nothing amazing, nothing bad. The iced tea was really bad, I'm not sure how you screw up iced tea, but it was gross.

I always go for the fried chicken. Plenty of freshly prepared vegetables. The cornbread dressing was excellent and they even had fried okra. Salad bar is fresh and many choices. This is our go to restaurant while shopping in Redding.

The food was well prepared and tasty. The salad bar had several things to chose from to make a delicious salad. The hot food was fresh and fully cooked. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was clean.

What can I say? It's a buffet style restaurant which I and my friends usually refer to as "the trough". My visit this week had no surprises that could be called unusual or unexpected. Yes, I did get a coffee creamer that was curdled, but the system is stacked against the restaurant. If they let the bin go empty to... More

Stopped here for dinner. The selection was limited, but hot food was hot, and the food was good. Staff were attentive and cheerful. We also appreciated the business' honoring of military service members. However, we marked this down because there was the distinct odor of urine in the restaurant the entire time we were there. Not sure of the source,... More

They used to be excellent but times have changed. Their menu is less than desirable. The prices have gone up and they charge separately for drinks. If you just ask for water you can save $3.50 per meal. Is a Soda or cup of coffee really worth that much money? They have some good selections and we do eat their... More

We were just visiting California and Hometown Buffet was pretty good. My Wife's family used to eat there when they lived there. Pleasant management and good food. Much better than the chain buffets. If I'm ever back in the area, we will be eating there again.
