Happened to stop for lunch at Lauren's because it was the first place we came to while driving to spend an afternoon of wine tasting. What a wonderful surprise !. They use as much of the local products as possible. The inside of the restaurant wasn't much but we ate on the wooden porch in the shade under the porch... More

Used local produce. Seemed authentically part of the community. Friendly service. My beet salad was excellent.

Had lunch with friends and family at Lauren's while visiting Boonville. The food was not fancy but very good. I would return to Lauren's again for another delicious meal.

Love the low key "locals" atmosphere. Eclectic menu with some difficult choices to make. Pork and tomatillo stew was delicious. Cheeseburger and fries would make any roadhouse jealous. Lauren was very welcoming.

Lauren's is a great spot for a casual and inexpensive dinner. The food was unbelievably fresh. We went back two nights in a row for the salad because all of the vegetables were so delicious. I'm a nutritionist, and my job would be a lot easier if all vegetables tasted like they do at Lauren's. Bonus: at the end of... More

Driving through Boonville at lunch time. Found the oasis of Lauren's. Had a great tuna melt and quiche. Excellent home cooked food.

Don't miss Lauren's when you come to Boonville or drive through on the way to Mendocino. Lauren's is a large, casual, local favorite and every menu item is delicious. Fresh ingredients from appetizers to desserts (be sure to save room for dessert). I love the Asian Big Bowl, the pork sandwich, best french fries ever, tostada and the veggie burger.... More

We were so hungry and stopped at the first restaurant we saw, and are glad we did. It is a very unpretentious place with a come in and feel at home attitude. Our waitress radiated happiness and helpfulness. The food was simple, but well prepared. My husband had the black bean soup and turkey quesidilla, and I had the delicious... More

We were driving through Boonville, early evening. We were kind of shocked to see that many of the restaurants were closed -- in fact, many looked *shut*, as in permanently. We just wanted something simple and noticed Lauren's was the only place open. It was Trivia night, and was obvious this was a popular local hangout. The waitress kindly told... More

Enjoyed the delicious home made meatloaf with potatoes and green beans. Wife had a hamburger and thought she was traveling light until she saw it. Nice size! Everything was tasty and while you may be tempted to high tail it out of there because of the bar and pool table - Don't! Excellent people to talk to and it appears... More
