Despite some comments made in previous reviews we found the service to be excellent and the owner Gus was very friendly and attentive... read more

If you come here by yourself, be prepared for the surly owner to seat table after table of people who do NOT have reservations before you. He does not want to give up a table to a single diner. He yells at his employees, and is unfriendly to customers. The food is pretty good, but I refuse to put up... More

Within a mile or two of downtown Sonora. Locals recommended the steakhouse to us. It is a multi generational owned business. The staff is friendly. There is a full bar with wall-mounted TVs and seating separate from the main dining room. They have a large menu with several choices of meals. We ordered the steak and ribs.Our meal was cooked...

It was dark, dingy and food was just ok.. Service was excellent and prices were reasonable but the atmosphere and ambiance waaaaaaay outdated (70's) and no pleasant. Food was not impressive or memorable. Friendly staff and great service.

I have eaten here before but the last time we ate there it was horrible. They put us in a corner and never came back. Three times, my husband tried to catch a waitress to get a beer and he never could get second. We couldn't get water either. There were four of us and we finally caught someone to... More

I went here a while ago for the first and last time. The lighting was horrible and my husband had to send his food back several times before the order was gotten right. The waitress was almost impossible to flag down, and was offended when I told her she wasn't getting a tip because of the horrific service. She had... More
