Soup was $6.50 EXTRA. At least include a cup or small bowl with the main entrée...that is Pea Soup Anderson's claim to fame...will NOT be back!

Nothing special. Pea soup, tastes canned, very salty. Specialty requests throw them for a loop. Expensive for what you get.

We wanted to stop at A.J. Spurs, but we were too early and they weren't open yet. So we went to Anderson's. The place was realtively empty, but we were greated nicely at the door, and seated promptly. The waitress was friendly and efficient, and even a bit down-home chatty. Hubby had the pea soup and said it needed pea... More

Quaint soup restaurant at Buillton California. Great friendly service and good value food. Worth making a stop for, especially the pea soup. As my husband said "just like mum used to make it! "

Ever since I was a child, my parents would plan many of our trips to stop at Andersen's for lunch. Even now when I am close I try to eat there. I love their "Traveler's Special" which is all of the pea soup you can eat plus a beverage, including a shake. I always have the chocolate shake and I... More

After arriving in Buellton yesterday, my husband and I went to Andersen's for lunch. We ordered the pea soup and were really disappointed. It looked like it had come out of a can and had a greyish dark green color. The soup had a pureed texture. It would have tasted better if it had bits of peas in it. We... More

Since it was New Year's Eve, I called ahead to see if they were open and when they closed. Open 'till 10pm. Great! We were coming from the Los Angeles area & camping at Flying Flags RV resort. Got there at 915pm and were welcomed as if it were 6pm! We were never rushed. My husband & I both had... More

They haven't changed this place from the day it opened. You go for the reason you go to any of these old named historical places--you did it with your parents. The service was very good and the food was adequate--you know what to expect. Would we do it again--no because we can now say we been there done that.

I was staying in Buellton for a wedding at a local winery and our hotel was pretty close to Pea Soup Andersen's. We looked up the place on the internet and realized that it was something we had to do when in the area. How often can you go to the "home" of split-pea soup by chance? We went into... More

This was my first-time eating at Anderson's Pea Soup in Buellton; I'd probably eaten at the 1-5 one ten times or so over the years since it has such good pea soup, and I'm a huge, huge fan of pea soup and Danish pastries as well. I was not sure what to expect, but I was absolutely charmed by the... More
