Hometown Buffet – A Giveaway
Posted By Jessica Fisher On September 21, 2010 @ 12:32 pm In Falling for Fun,Promotions | Comments Disabled
One of my children’s favorite memories is a night we spent at a hotel in St Louis several years ago. It wasn’t the newly built accomodations, the Gateway Arch, or the tour of Grant’s Farm that they loved. It was the buffet at the hotel.
There’s something about a buffet that draws kids in and lights up their eyes.
Recently, Hometown Buffet  contacted me regarding some new changes they’ve made in San Diego. We headed out one night for a family dinner at one of the newly-remodeled locations to taste some of the new fresh choices they’ve added to their menu.
The kids were so excited. They’d heard of buffet restaurants and really, really, really wanted to go to one. Really, Mom.
We’d been fighting some kind of flu bug for a few weeks, waiting for everyone to be well at one time in order to go. Two boys and I went on a Hometown Buffet  date one night, as a kind of recon mission. Then we went back a few nights later with the whole family.
Oh my! To hear them say, “Well, I usually start with caesar salad and shrimp when I come here.” What seasoned buffet diners we had in our midst.
The kids had a fantastic time. They were like kids in a candy store with so many choices for dinner, so many drink options, and no one had to do kitchen jobs!
And even though we normally limit sweets, we let them have as many desserts as they wanted. And believe it or not, they didn’t go overboard. But they had a great time crafting ice cream sundaes and rootbeer floats.
Obviously, with a large chain, you may see variation between locations, but overall, our experience was a positive one. The kids enjoyed a night out of food and fun.
