If you want good old southern cooking at a reasonable price this is the place to go. They offer daily specials plus plenty of sides. Comfortable seating inside, also has a drive-thru. I usually get the fish and a couple sides and everything is great. They're open for lunch and dinner so plenty of opportunities to eat. Must give it a try...

Home Plate is an excellent lunch or dinner choice. Just like the name states,it's like u are getting a plate from home. The servers are very friendly. I try to stop every time I'm in the area.

The food is good but limited. I'm a huge chicken salad fan but they put WAY to many pickles I'm the chicken salad and potato salad for my liking. But , to each their own. I've been here several times and will most likely go back several more times. It's a restaurant for everyone. You'll see truckers , folks coming from church , kids to grandparents , etc. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a good sized plate for a real decent price.

Food was amazing. Chicken was tender and falling off the bone. Mac and cheese on point and hushpuppies had just the right amount of sweetness. I also had blackeyed peas which were delicious. The staff was very accommodating and they had nice country charm. I felt welcomed and would definitely come back if I'm on this side of town.

There are multiple reasons why I am giving them five stars number one is the great customer service today was my first time visiting this place. Secondly, the food was absolutely amazing. Make me feel like I was at grandmas house. I got a two piece chicken, dark with mac & cheese, green beans, and peach cobbler for about 10 bucks on Matched customer service and amazing prices

If you live in Durham, and haven't come to Home Plate you are wasting your life. I worked this area years ago and it was always a favorite. It's been at least 3 yrs since I was last here and they have not missed a beat. Pork chops and fish are the go to. 10 out of 10 you won't regret it and if you do......something is wrong with you.

The guys who work here are so sweet and polite! 5 stars for service.
Ordering a tiny challenge since the menu is not consistent. You’re better off coming inside, looking at the food display so you can choose your meat and two sides. Plus, you have a choice of a roll or hush puppies.
If you go through drive thru, you should already have an idea of what you want to order. The day I came, there were porkchops, fried fish, baked bbq chicken and fried chicken. Sides were various beans, deviled eggs, and other stuff I didn’t pay attention to (sorry!).
Dessert was banana pudding - $1.25. Can’t beat that! I can’t wait to return here.
Ps: the fish was not my favorite, as the texture was a little tougher than I expected. However, I came late afternoon so the fish may have been a later batch. I’m willing to try again.
The price, variety, and service make me want to return.

Have eaten here for many years now and seen the same faces. Always consistent home southern cooking. It's so inexpensive sometimes I pay it forward for others in line. Makes me feel good!
