A different burger place

Nice place for adults, but not so much for kids or family. The burger was okay. I didn't think it was anything special. There were home made chips which I didn't care for at all. A nice place for adults to gather but not a place I'm in a hurry to eat at again.

We stopped here after driving a segment of Route 66. It was an off-peak time, and there weren't many people here. We ate outside, and they gladly lit the heaters nearby for us. We split a Buffalo Burger with their chips; very tasty! Just beer and wine here, and there was live music from a guy with a guitar.

I started going to this place shortly after it opened as the Buffalo Inn in 1980. I was a regular there until moving out of state in 2000. Over time places change, hopefully for the better. Unfortunately this is not the case with this establishment. On a short trip to So. Cal I stopped in for a burger on my... More

The building and outdoor seating have character and atmosphere that can be hard to find in the Inland Empire. Unfortunately it is poorly managed, with expensive drinks and no outreach. The college students half a mile away have never heard of it. The place is often closed by 9:30 or 10 at night.

This place is fun to visit. Be sure to eat outside under the trees. It is like a picnic ground with food, beer, and entertainment, (on weekends). However, this is not a place for people with walking problems since the eating area has uneven footing. It is usually covered with pieces of bark. This would not work for someone with... More

Back when this place was the hot spot to go for food and outdoor music, it was fantastic! Now, it's sad to say but the service has gone down and the love that place had died down. I still love going there for a fun time, just wish they had better service. Their chips are amazing, ask for the salsa... More

Stopped on here on our route 66 vacation. The coolest part was the patio. Buffalo burgers are not that great and they will not cook them to order. Also beyond her control but only one waitress on a Saturday and there were about 9 other tables on the patio so very slow service.

We visited this place with friends. We sat outside to listen to the band, Kim Martin Band. They were pretty good, and had lots of people up dancing. The service was slow but adequate. The server was not very friendly, but did give us enough attention, until it came time to pay the check. Then she was nowhere to be... More

Fairly loud music at times. OK burgers, not very special. Funky old décor. Plenty of free parking. Can sit outside and listen to the traffic noise.

Always a different and fun experience. Brought the family to try this place and everyone enjoyed it. Out door seating, music and good food.
