This place is a very typical coffee shop/diner, reminiscent of Denny's except the menu doesn't change that often. It's not bad; it's not great. It does get pretty crowded however, because a lot of locals eat here. It's dependable, the service is pretty good and they do have daily specials. Overall... read more

Had a banana cream pie to go and the pie had no flavor at all. It did have fresh bananas and whipped cream but even the whipped cream had no sugar or flavor. Definitely not going there for pie again.

Paul's is a one owner restaurant so it has the small diner/restaurant feeling. Busy, homey, friendly. We frequent it often.

My husband likes breakfast type foods and I would rather have a lunch type of food. Paul's has there whole menu all day. Not only that it was very good.

Paul's Place was full of locals the evening we ate there. We were seated quickly and asked if the draft was too much from the door. The food was fresh, crisp and delicious. We had very nice side salads to start, followed by prime rib. The prime rib was nicely seasoned but not overly so. The horseradish is mixed by... More

Had ribeye steak and spare ribs. Good value for money, especially with the bread, salat and potatoes served. Steaks were a bit chewy. Would recommend to increase meat quality over quantity. We were seeved very quickly and staff was very kind.

This is an extremely popular place in Merced and has been for many, many years. Went there yesterday for a breakfast with a friend and received the same courteous service as always. Their food is good and the senior menu is excellent. Don't hesitate that there won't be enough food on your plate and go and order from the regular... More
