Maybe we should have tried the chicken pot pie that everyone is talking about? We would go back if we come through town again.

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.

The fried dill pickles were not very good. My salad was large but not as good as most places. The food server was friendly and attentive.

Tourists visit here due to location... Not the best in Julian. Plain Jane and not consistent in taste.
