This is the way bacon should be!

We impulsively stopped for breakfast here on the way to Arnold CA. My husband raved about the bacon flavor most of the day. We think that we would like to head for the hills again next week. This time. We will leave Modesto with a breakfast planned at Hillbillies. The service was fast & tasty.

Great food and very accommodating staff. We were a large group for breakfast and they were very helpful in taking care of us even though we arrived at different times. The scramble in the bread bowl was terrific.

I went for breakfast and found the hash browns should have been crispier. Otherwise, the food was good. I did not like the strange art on the wall. There are three masses of plastic bottles and kitchen utensils painted each in red, white, or blue. This isn't hillbilly, it just looks trashy. The rest of the walls, with pallets and... More

We were here for a late breakfast on a Friday. The restaurant was about half-full and we were seated by the hostess right away. The waitress seemed a little stressed. I don't know why, but she wasn't happy. We ordered Meat Lover's Omelets. My wife ordered hers with egg whites, and wanted onions added to mine. We ordered sodas, and... More

For whatever reason, this place was recommended by the front desk staff where we were staying. The atmosphere was depressing, food mediocre at best, and the flies were the coup de gras!!

We came for lunch and were super impressed with the food. The portions were plentiful and the flavor was amazing. However I agree with the other comments about the service, it was just so so. The smiles ? felt perfunctory and not genuine. I had to ask for a refill on my water. We will probably come back but with... More

We've had breakfast at Hillbillies 3 times, and each time our meals were excellent! We hadn't eaten there prior to the makeover from the tv show Restaurant Impossible, so can't compare the before and after. But the before is water under the bridge, and after is simply delicious! We've tried different items on each visit and have had nothing but... More

The food was awesome but the service was meeh - it took forever for the waitress to refill our waters and we had to get our own sugar & hot sauce after waiting for 5 minutes from another table because she forgot about us. The decor was pretty cool too!

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to the caverns. As we walked in we were greeted by the waitress and I begin to tell her to please seat us away from the other 4 occupied tables, because our toddler was being a little bit cranky. Before I could even finish talking she "says well I'm here all alone... More

Wanted to order a Hamburger and fries. They had no hamburger meat period. I replied that the next and only other table with customers appeared to have a burger and fries? Her reply was it was a frozen patty and wasn't very good so I ordered chicken fingers with sweet potato fries. When my order came out the chicken was... More
