Still just quite average food, butterbeans and cornbread are pretty good, but I have to give credit in that the portions have gotten a LOT better and the servers are a LOT LESS STINGY with 'em, perhaps the TripAdvisor site has helped with that, lol......More

We went there to eat lunch after church. Hamburger steak and country fried steak are some of our favorites. Everything was delicious. I am taking off one star because the country fried steak wasn't hot, but barely warm.

The food was good. Not the greatest. It was set up like a cafeteria and one could pick a meat (or 2) and vegetables. They had pineapple casserole which is a unique, southern find!

I enjoy going to a buffet where you can see and select. There's a special bonus when you see that you've selected tasty food. I've never been disappointed at Home Plate Diner. It's always good food--just like good home cooking without the bother.
