Variable Results. We ate there three times. First time the service was OK, and the pizza excellent with perfect crust. Next two times, the pizza was so-so, and the service again was somewhat poor both times.
No management. We live in the area and have been a regular (weekly) customer for 3 years. Most employees recognize us because we go so much. Tonight we waited 45 min for 2 hamburgers. We asked about our food and got a condescending response in return. We complained and decided to get it to go. Then we asked for a comp and to speak to the manager. The manager hid in the back and had the waitress tell us we could only have 1/2 off. This is not the way to treat a regular customer. They have decent food because it's inexpensive. The service while dining in has steadily declined over the past 2 years. We are done with this restaurant.
Best local pizza!. I have only tried the pizza and garlic twists at Home Grown but it is my favorite local pizza place. I don't like eating there since it was loud and overrun with kids the couple of times I've been there so we usually just order and pick it up. The staff is very nice though and our pizza is always very hot and delicious! The greek pizza is our favorite.
Family Friendly and Delicious. I have worked in the restuarant business for over 7 years now. Although Home Grown Pizza was rather busy on nights like Friday, I enjoyed it very much. The food was outstanding, the service was admirable, and my friends and I truly enjoyed it. The only bad thing i saw about Home Grown Pizza were the rude people that were complaining constantly about little things. They made their servers run around like they weren't human beings in reality. I felt horrible for how these servers were being treated, so I was extremely nice and respectful to them, especially since working at Home Grown Pizza is probably how they make their living. Overall though, i truly enjoyed my experience at Home Grown Pizza, and will defintely return for another visit.
Good food but slow service. We have been going to Homegrown since we moved here 2 1/2 yrs ago. Its always good food but the service is slow. I dont know if they are just always short servers or what. Expect a long dinner because from the time you sit down, wait for someone to get your drink order (can take 15 minutes or so) then order your phone, wait for your food (have waited 30-45 minutes for a sandwich) its an all night deal! Food is decent though so I'll give it 3 stars. If we get more restaurants in the area this one will not last..
Good Food, Very Poorly Managed Restaurant.
Food is always good, but poorly managed (Coming from someone who has restaurant experience).
There are like 6 guys on the line and 2-3 hostesses, yet you can easily wait an hour and a half for take out, when they tell you 20 mins for pickup. The hostess told me the other night she had no idea how long the wait would be when we wanted to dine in. No one ever looks in a hurry and the staff seem to be getting no direction, and don't seem to care one way or the other. Unfortunately, it is one of few places to dine in Holly Springs, so it will survive, even though it shouldn't.
The Calzones are the best I've ever had - anywhere ... and I've been everywhere, man!. A locally owned, very kid friendly, independent pizza restaurant, offering an interesting assortment of beers. Using locally grown ingredients the owners, who are transplants to the south, bring both Chicago and Philadelphia tastes to the area. Home Grown Pizza has become a favorite place to go for lunch and dinner in the Holly Springs area.
Great food and Friendly staff. overall, Homegrown Pizza has great food, and a friendly wait staff. They offer half price appetizers on Monday through Friday until 6. sadly, i have seen people come into the resturant wanting the same discount after 6, when they have clearly entered 30 minutes or more later. This upsets me because people should understand that they are late, so they dont get the discount. i think it's only fair. I've lived in the area for 12 or more years now, and i'm glad that such a resturant has opened up to the community. Homegrown Pizza does a lot fo the community, including donating items and meals to certain fundraisers and to the schools in the area. The pizza is unbeatable, and the staff is very friendly and open to conversating with their customers. I enjoy having a waitress talk to me instead of just getting my order. It shows that they care about their job, and enjoy working there. That says a lot about a place's character. The fact that the wait staff enjoys working there, and they take time out of their busy work schedule to talk to you, shows that they care about the customers. The blue cheese and ranch dressings are home-made (i'm pretty sure) and are completely worth trying! I've enjoyed pretty much every time i've come to homegrown and i would recommend it to anyone who asked. I've even dragged my friends from places as far as wilmington, and southern pines just so they can try the food...and of course, they love it just as much as i do! actually, my friend in wilmington wants the owner to open one there! So, as i've said, Homegrown pizza is a great experience for anyone who is willing to give it a chance. I recommend it!
Family friendly at its best!.
Our family loves Homegrown Pizza in Holly Springs. It is consistently good... food and service. We have 3 young children and Homegrown staff will always meet our needs. The specialty mushroom pizza is the best pie I've ever had!!! We always take out-of-town guests to eat there. It's convenient, friendly and delicious!
Try it, you'll like it.
Great food, great service!!!. I truly love Homegrown Pizza! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, modifying the menu to meet my unique (and yes, picky) taste. From the delicious steak and cheese sandwiches, the mouth-watering burgers and specialty pizzas to the avocado sandwiches, antipasta and mixed green salads, the menu is diverse while remaining reasonably priced. The specials of the day are a "must-try", ranging from baked ziti to chicken salad, all of which are made fresh. There really is something for everyone! It's a smoke-free, family friendly environment with warm and welcoming staff that are always ready to serve you!
