Went there a few times while in town. Being with a few meat eaters I was concerned about how hard it would be to find something good. The salad bar rocked it. Lots of veggies, and then soup too. I didn't go hungry at all. And good beer choices too.

After driving for three days in a row, many hours, couldn't take one more truck stop. Followed the billboard to the Apple Shed in Tehachapi. Home made food. Wonderful, friendly people. The salad that came with the meal was a trip to their incredibly well stocked and well varied salad bar. The soup appeared to be home made and the... More

Tehachapi is turning into an artist's colony, so the settings tend to get picturesque. This is the case here, and the food is quite good to boot.

My wife had the nice buffet, and I got the last pot pie that was available at lunch. Nice selection, friendly service, reasonable prices. They also have a gift shop with some interesting local items. I bought one, an obsidian and antler knife, and I'll attempt to attach a picture of that.

Town locals recommended this place saying it was under grey new management. We had burgers and desert and loved the homemake buns. Interesting building and a very good soup and salad bar with 5 different home made soups! Will stop again traveling through!

Stopped off for lunch while driving from Sacramento to Palm Springs. We like to find other than fast food joints and the Apple Shed didn't disappoint. Chili and ciabatta bread were very good and the BLT was as well. Very generous portions. Server was friendly. There is a small gift shop attached to the restaurant but it was pretty slim... More

Stopped in one afternoon for a quick lunch. Everything we had was great! I will have to do this again.

Good food. I had the pot pie. Nice waitress. Cute town. Cute atmosphere. Unique home-town restaurant with good cooking. It was fun watching the trains going by as we ate lunch.

Large servings for breakfast, great soup and salad bar at noon, and well prepared sandwiches the rest of the time. Lots of good "comfort" food with generous proportions. Their soup and salad buffet at lunch is a local favorite with constant variety daily in the 5 or so soups they offer every day, well-stocked salad bar and daily changes on... More

BBQ was dry a far from Texan standard. Buffet had soup/salad/pasta selection but not good either. Food was plain and not tasting. Better grab a sandwich next time!
