great food with a new name

Tellys , now called Papa Z's Burgers. Still the same employees and menu. They have breakfast lunch and dinner. They have a variety of desserts and shakes. My favorite is the grilled ham and cheese on thick sourdough.

This restaurant is under new management and is now known as Papaz Grill. We went there for breakfast on Mother's Day and had delicious 4 egg omlets with generous fillings. The only negative about the place is that you have to order at the counter. They bring your food to you and check frequently to see if all is OK.... More

There are some plusses to the place, the girls are friendly and helpful, the place is actually pretty cool looking, the portions are generous, the prices are fair. The food is inconsistent. Sometimes cooked okay, sometimes a bit blah. It's just not very good, but I stop short of saying it's bad. The two times my wife and I have... More

This place has really good food and large portions. The zucchini sticks are sooo good, and even the small size is a large portion.

Locally owned. Small town feel. Place is clean and well kept. Good honest American food. Onion rings are good. Big portions, so share. Omelets are good too!

This is a local favorite. It is a 50's style place with great food in a new clean building. Breakfast lunch and dinner, shakes, deserts, and a fun time. I believe that they have a carshow in their parking lot friday nights. They have a great grilled ham and cheese on thick sourdough. There are many breakfast choices. There are... More

I stumbled upon Telly's on my last trip home from Southern California last January. I stopped in Castaic (where? Just a few miles north of Six Flags Magic Mountain on the 5) for gas and saw a sign for it on the off ramp. I took a chance--and was pleasantly surprised! This charming little diner was so nifty-fifties fun and... More
