Imaginative servings of good food

We had dinner here before an event and service was quick and convenient. Order at the counter and they bring the food to you. There is a black cherry marinated beef that is used in a variety of dishes. My wife had the tacos, my father-in-law the burrito and we also had the wrap. The main ingredient... read more

This place has an awesome menu of Chile lime chicken, Cherry beef, Barbacoa, and fish that go into bowls (for those who do not like tortillas, enchiladas, burrito's, Boccadillos , and salads. The Beer selection is the best in that area.

Quick, casual really good food. Basic Mexican items like tacos and quesadillas with a unique touch. Good selection of beer and wine, especially liked the Irish Vineyards Chardonnay. Great place for a quic meal.

Fair selection of Mexican style food. Very excellent with very good service. Beers and ales excellent but only fair selection. Able to receive generous sample of whatever is available. Two choices of hard cider is unusual and very commendable.

This is a very casual restaurant where you order in front and your food is brought to your table. We sat at one in front of the window looking out at the street. The window was greasy and the table was not clean. We had a two year old with us and the high chair was encrusted with grime. The... More

We have visited the area several times but had never stopped in Angles Camp before. The front desk staff at our hotel recommended Sidewinders and the name alone intrigued us enough to check it out. The ambiance was wonderfully historic gold country! There were couples, families, & mixed groups, 20-somethings and middle-agers, when we were there and they all seemed... More

This place is in an awesome building in historic Angels Camp. I had been lukewarm to the food on my previous two visits. Today I tried the meatball soup with warm cornbread. I thought it was great and had just a little "kick." I would definitely order it again. I will now give the fusion style Mexican dishes another try.... More
