We've been to the Rongbranch for lunch and dinner several times and recommend it to our friends and family to stop by when they visit Julian.

Great service;;large portions;;good food;;right price Julian has many attractions. An active gold mine tour that could be shaky for youngsters since it is a real mine and requires a bit of climbing and they do shut off the lights to show what dark can be. There are many antique store and collectable stores well worth the time. A horse and... More

I would say that this is your average American roadhouse type of place. Very friendly staff and the menu had lots to choose from. We had some burgers and onion rings. They were average. Maybe we should have tried the chicken pot pie that everyone is talking about? We would go back if we come through town again.

One must try its chicken pot pie--the flaky crust is made to perfection, and it has large chunks of moist chicken. The service is exceptionally friendly and sincere.

We had a late dinner on our way back home after exploring the Julian area, and enjoyed ourselves. They were telling us about plans they had to start up dinner performances. Don't know if they did, but we will check them out next time we are in the area.

I ordered the pulled pork. It was tasty but needed more barbecue sauce. The fries were good. Apple pie was excellent. Service was good. Julian was very quiet on a weekday in summer. Not all of the shops were open.
