Nice place

I would eat here again. I was across the parking lot from the hotel so I ate here. Staff was nice. Food was good. This place has regulars and the staff will sit and talk with them during slow time. Nice place.

We were staying at a hotel nearby. the food was very good, quite inexpensive and the service excellent. Hilari, our waitress couldn't have been friendlier and what a smile. We would definitely eat here again if in the area.

We live here in Salida and eat here all of the time. The food is consistently excellent and the staff is friendly and will make you feel like one of the family . . . Don't pass up the chance to eat here. Great selection at a reasonable price.

I enjoyed this place - and was pleasantly surprised. The place was quiet, the food was good and served hot. It is a great value. I had the teriyaki chicken it was fresh and hot and good. Enjoyed the salad and soup as well. Service was friendly. Walking distance from hotels in the area. Will definitely come again!

The menu at this Perkos is predictably the same as every other Perkos. What sets this store apart is the staff. It's like a local family owned place where the servers treat you like family. We are regulars, but have noticed that those that are not are still treated as though they are.

Friends of ours invited us here a few weeks ago while were temporarily living in the area. "One more restaurant," I thought. Fortunately I was mistaken! Everything to the old Farmal tractor parked outside to the signage inside was inviting. The food was great and the service was excellent. I had a delicious burger and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Ate here while on business in Modesto. I enjoyed the old county dinner feel to the place and the servers played the part well. Very friendly service and really good prices. I ordered the steak and bake special which was ok, but the steak was over cooked. They have an open style kitchen, which I always like, but I could... More

Friendly staff, great food, good prices: 20% senior discount any day & early bird breakfast before 8 am for less than $5. Just a comfortable neighborhood restaurant.

This little place is cozy, family oriented and friendly. The only sad part is the service is very slow and poor- They leave one waiting minutes at the table- The customer had to head down the waitress and tel her about taking the order I guess like various places they have their favorite customers, which they indeed catered to in...
