Warm welcome

Walked in there near closing time, 2 kids and 3 adults, made really welcome, not rushed. Best french fries I've ever had and a tasty homemade burger plus interestingly round hot dogs for the children!! Really enjoyed and will happily return when next in Placerville.

Really enjoyed this, small local and 100% authentic. The staff was very friendly and the food was high quality. Really enjoyed the burger and fries.

The owner is a world-class chef and is cooking at the grill almost every day. The burgers and fries are the best and I order them every time. My friends order the sandwiches and the salads and say they great too. It's a small place with a cozy atmosphere. You order at the register, and then sit. Extremely high quality... More

They offer lots of specialty meals--including healthy salads--but their hamburgers seem to be their specialty. It was moist, thick and full of flavor. Their chefs take pride in their work and the taste of the food was proof of their efforts.

Great bacon cheeseburger and the fries were fresh (not frozen) and to die for. Check out the daily specials before ordering off the board. Friendly staff and prompt service.

Have been eating Owner/chef John Saunders food for years. It's always great. In addition to the regular menu, there is always half a dozen specials each day.

Very casual and order at the counter, then food is served to you in gold mining pans. Standard burgers, but always something interesting like elk burgers or stuffed burgers and so, so tasty. The staff was so friendly and helpful and food was very prompt.

Sandwiches, salads, specialties, all done by a world-class set of chefs (daughter Jenny is working along with Dad John and Mom Debbie). Their catering business is thriving and I've never had better catered cuisine.

Great lunch Burgers, even Emu, sometimes Buffalo, always grass-fed beef. Old-time grill atmosphere, or the back patio-type tables. Real hand-scooped ice cream milkshakes - yummy!
