Tho the wait staff is excellent and the menu extensive, some of the meals just didn't measure up. If you ever wanted to dine in a doll house, this would be the spot. I know it is a favorite of the locals, but not a favorite of mine. It seemed the menu was overpriced and the food taste just so-so.... More

We went here in August, which even by locals is deemed "the worst time of year to come" to this part of California, Shoot, heat don't scare me. So we looked for a place, a special place to get breakfast before church. We were a little concerned that the place was packed, but they took is right on and we... More

Consistently good food, good service and a feeling of being welcomed. The breakfast is always a real winner and you can't miss with it. There is a lot of it, and the hash browns are the best in town. The servers are always attentive, but not too much. We recommend it without reservation.

This diner has been around for years, and generally the help has also been around for many years. The food is good for the most part, and the prices are about normal for their home cooked type food. When Don and Sweet Sue's is busy, parking has been difficult. Service is generally good.

Hear this advertised on the radio so thought I would check it out for lunch as didn't want to eat fast food again! The service was very good and the menu huge! I heard a couple of guys rave about the Patty Melt as they were leaving so I gave that a try with a side salad. The salad was... More

We went her twice for Sunday Brunch. Both times we got seated right away, on the patio. Nice Menu. Food was good. As was the service. They let dogs on the patio, which was so nice cause we were missing ours. Parking is good, may have to go behind but that's not too bad. You want good food, good service,... More
