This restaurant has been in this area for probably over 40 years. It is in a low key, country area, although not that far from highway 1. The food is dependably good for breakfast. (I have not had their lunches). Staff is friendly and accommodating. This is a very casual place, which I understand can be extremely busy on the... More

I had an omelet and an enjoyable experience. A friendly local morning breakfast spot that is great when you want to get out of the fancy hotel offerings. They are cash-only, so be aware of this.

An old cowboy hangout from years ago. Decorated with cowboy and horse photos, and other mementos. Open for breakfast and lunch daily. You can always relay on good home style cooking and friendly service. One can never go wrong here for a good meal. I eat breakfast here very often and it is quality.

The Wagon Wheel is a great local spot for breakfast with friendly service. If you are looking for either healthy or vegetarian options - this isn't your place. If you want pancakes , eggs, and bacon - you are in heaven. Feels like Texas, but in California. Great service, good sized portions and lots of butter. Farmers Brothers coffee and... More

I have eaten here three times with a friend and never been disappointed as I have been with another home-style restaurant in the village. The food is always excellently prepared and delicious. That tiny kitchen of theirs is always humming. And the wait staff is very happy and helpful, with just enough sass to make it fun. This is no... More

Typical dive but acceptable food. Very small with folksy waitresses with a collection of memorabilia hanging everywhere.

We've been to this place a number of times, a couple of times when we still had our dogs traveling with us, and we were able to sit at one of the little tables outside with our pups. Now that we're empty nesters, we're able to sit inside, and the place has it's own charm. I enjoy the vibe and... More

The Wagon Wheel was always worth the extra drive. Top notch breakfast, lunch, brunch! Homey atmosphere, clean, great service. Love this place ever since I was a kid.
