Hometown Hot Pot has both hot pot and barbecue - but mostly we come here for the hot pot. It’s about $24 per person, and that gets you unlimited meat, veggies, starches, and broth. If that sounds like a good deal, that’s because it is - and you aren’t the only one who knows it. This place is actually massive (with two floors), but it still gets busy. If you’re with a group of 6 or more, call ahead for a reservation.
