Please note: This is a sponsored post. I was compensated for my time with a free meal for my time as well as some great giveaways for you guys.
I’m so thankful that I passed my glucose test before heading out to this wonderful event. I met so many awesome people while I was there, and I got to taste some really awesome treats guys. We’ll start with the Cinnabon! Baby craves sweets so we know this was a perfect fit for me. They were delicious of course. Unfortunately for most of you, these are only available in the Los Angeles currently and not throughout the country. I’m sure they’ll be coming to an Ovation Brand near you soon.
As you can see, they are served in these adorable little individual sized portions so that you don’t have to worry about sharing! Of course if you’re hanging out with me then you should probably keep your fork to yourself and away from my food right now. This is definitely not normal for me since I usually share everything with my hubs. I’ll tell you though that he was pretty lucky because they let me bring 4 home, and he got to eat one! He was having a rough day so how could I deny him?
It didn’t take me long to dig in to the one in front of me at HomeTown Buffet though. I really couldn’t even imagine letting it sit, because it wouldn’t be so perfectly oooey gooey and warm. I love a fresh Cinnabon, and I can assure you that these were indeed fresh. The employees at HomeTown Buffet were constantly having to refresh the Cinnabon station. Partially because it’s new and partially because they’re delicious. The great thing about HomeTown Buffet teaming up with Cinnabon is that most people already know Cinnabon so you know what to expect.
Now before you think I only got to try dessert, I’ll let you know that we were also able to try the new Steaktastic menu at HomeTown Buffet. This is their seasonal menu. You see HomeTown Buffet wants to keep it seasonal for you in the same way most of the kitsch restaurants do these days. This allows them to give you fresher foods, right? You betcha!
We started with sirloin over potatoes o’brien. You’ll notice that yet again this is served in individual portions. This is one of the ways that HomeTown Buffet is trying to help with the idea that buffets are giving you food that everyone in the restaurant has touched. It’s a nice though if you ask me, and the serving dishes are absolutely adorable. This also allows you look at the dishes available and pick the ones that best suits your wants in that moment. They’ll probably look mostly the same since you have to appease the entire buffet, but you do get to pick an individual choice of this tasty treat.
Now we are onto sirloin steakhouse chili. What I liked the most about the dish was the flavor. This had a spice level that was just right for most people. It reminded me of eating chili back home before a big football game.
Now we have sirloin with potatoes au gratin. I love potatoes au gratin so I was more than happy to see this coming toward me. I grew up in the South where potatoes are definitely the staple carb and we all know that EVERYTHING is better with cheese. These were certainly an amazingly cheesy treat.
Now we have country fried steak and 1/2 lb chopped beef steak. I know, I know! You’re all looking at the country fried steak and wondering where the gravy is, and I was too. This is when they explained that the gravy is served on the side so that if people don’t want it they can still have the country fried steak. I tested it with the gravy and I was pleased. You know the gravy is super important after all.
Now you know, I wasn’t leaving without more dessert. These individual cheesecake shooters were amazing. They were brownie and blueberry flavored individual cheesecakes. I loved it. Right now I definitely realize that I’d have to be super extra careful not to eat 10 of them.
Now let’s move onto the giveaway! Ovation Brands which includes HomeTown Buffet, Old Country Buffet, Ryan’s, Country Buffet, and Fire Mountain have given me 4 of their Big Book of Savings to mail out to one of my awesome readers! Let me know which of these awesome new products you’d love from HomeTown Buffet. I look forward to mailing you one of these awesome books!
