What is the difference in quality between Home Depot/Lowe's porcelain tile and that from a specialty tile store?

We are redoing a large kitchen (approximately 250 sq. ft) and are looking for tiling options that are durable and pretty. We visited a tile store this afternoon and saw tiles that ranged from $5 (very basic) to $11 per square foot. We then looked at home depot and saw what we thought as equally nice tile for less than $2 per square foot.
What causes such a difference in price? Is there a significant difference in quality? Has anyone had experience with Home Depot tile? Will we regret getting the cheaper tile?
