Fun In Louisville #1-HomeTown Buffet #Giveaway

Last week our family took a trip to Louisville, KY. Our main reason for going was to attend the National Quartet Convention Spring Break event, but we also enjoy shopping in the Louisville area, and eating at some restaurants that aren't around the small-town midwest! One of these is HomeTown Buffet; I believe our closest location is over 2 hours away, so when I learned there was one literally right across the street from our hotel, and they offered some guest passes for review (and a giveaway!) I was excited!


Upon entering the HomeTown Buffet we were greeted by a young man who "took our order" (asked if we'd like beverages with our meal, etc.) and then seated ourselves. Our server was a very friendly lady who introduced herself as Granny, and proceeded to chat for a couple minutes. Not all restaurants have servers this polite and friendly, so we enjoyed someone who did more than just grunt when you ask a question!



For most of us, the first stop was the salad bar. I love a fresh salad, and HomeTown has so many ingredients to include. The lettuces and veggies looked fresh, which doesn't always happen at buffets. We did have a small mix-up with dressings that were labeled wrong, and 2 of us had to go remake our salads with the proper dressing after getting a taste of what was definitely not ranch dressing.

After the salads we moved on to the meats and such. I was hoping for a pot roast skillet, as D had tried one and said it was very good, but unfortunately they wireline when I reached the buffet line, and were not refilled at all during our meal. I did enjoy the grilled fish though, and broccoli with cheese sauce-mmm! Other items on the buffet our family enjoyed were create-your-own tacos, Chinese chicken, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and of course some dinner rolls. There was plenty of variety for each individual taste.




After finishing my meal I headed over to the dessert section, and found something new since my last visit to a HomeTown-dessert "shooters". These are mini desserts in little cups, and include banana pudding, various cheesecakes, and a couple other pie-style desserts. I tried a blueberry cheesecake shooter and a banana pudding shooter, which was topped with a vanilla wafer. The flavor was great, but unfortunately the dessert itself was room temperature-almost lukewarm-which did lessen the enjoyment a bit. 



Overall our meal was good and enjoyable, other than the few things I mentioned. I do like all the variety at HomeTown Buffet, which even includes the beverages. White and chocolate milk, sodas, coffee, and tea...pretty much whatever you're in the mood for!

In Clarksburg WV, but more likely we'd use this further away as we are getting married next month and will be visiting my fiance's family who live four hours away more often. :)
