Been going here for years. After change in ownership a few years back, the quality of food and service at good prices keeps us coming back. The staff is always on top of their game, keeping the beverages filled and the plates cleared after the entrees are consumed. It's a bit noisy, but a reasonable place to get classic american...

wait staff was very nice, food was good. It is formost a bar, so you have the bar noise. But still a very nice place to meet friends for lunch or dinner.

If you want a harty breakfast and want to eat with the locals try Purple Place ...easy parking and prices you can afford. Good breakfast menu....I have had great fish and chips for lunch too. Lots of groups eat in the morning over coffee and breakfast. It is off the road, so keep your eye open toward the Folsom Dam... More

Not fast food by any means, but grilled and simply delicious burgers. Made to order and cooked to perfection. There are other things on the menu, but we never bother with them so I can't tell you anything about them. A little out of the way and off the beaten path, but well worth the side trip if you are...

This would be perfect for an episode of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. It's a homey diner that serves some amazing food. The quality and quantity are over the top and prices are very reasonable. The wait staff is super friendly and organized, and they would have to be because PP is always packed. They do have a diner counter and... More

We went to the Purple Place for dinner for the first time. I had a grilled chicken salad and my hubby a cheeseburger. The portions were large and food was good. It was a comfortable atmosphere and very family friendly. I will definitely go back.

Neighborhood landmark. Great burgers, salads and other food at a reasonable price. There are reasons why the parking lot is always full of cars. Great casual family dining and exceptionally kid friendly.

The Purple Place has been here a long time, and we finally got around to going there after reading all the good reviews. Yeah, the outside is painted purple and could pass for a message parlor from a former life, and it's a bit rustic and worn in a lot of ways, but the rustic ambiance makes it comfortable too....
