What’s the difference between “homestyle” and “restaurant style”?

Many restaurants advertise “homestyle” cooking. So why do many products in the grocery store call themselves “restaurant style?”

At the grocery store everything is labeled “restaurant style”. I go to a restaurant and the menu says “homestyle”. Which is it?

Food you buy at the grocery store is often labeled as “restaurant style”; food you order at restaurants is often billed as “homestyle.”

Years ago, people would eat out and hope to get “Homestyle Cooking”. Now they eat in and hope it’s “Restaurant Quality”. #throwbackthursday

Cooking products are sold by saying they can help you cook “restaurant quality” meals, but restaurants get you to come in by saying they have “Homestyle” cooking.

Restaurants: “Like mama used to make”.
My mom: “Here’s $5. Go get yourself something to eat...”
