Old Country Buffet is apparently the same company as Hometown Buffet, as well as "Fire Mountain" which sounded a wee bit gay. Aside from one unfortunate trip to my local Shakeys for lunch buffet (also my sister's idea, now that I think about it) I hadn't been to a true buffet in years before yesterday, and to be honest, although Hometown certainly ain't great, they're better than the ones from when I was a kid.

"Royal Fork" and "King's Table" are awesome buffet names, although I'm betting they were called "smorgasbords" back in the day. That's what we had here, it was a big term in the '70s and '80s, and they had cooler names than buffets lately.
