Good Pizza - Okay Value

Over all the food was good. The seating is a little crammed. When you arrive its a little confusing. Decent pizza. Okay for the price.

Mostly fried foods, ok pizzas.- definitely not gourmet.. Minimal choices if trying to stay away from fried/ fattening meals Staff try hard.- used to offer home delivery. Great loss to the community when they stopped this service

My partner and I ate at Yancys for something different. I had the fish and chips and he ordered some sort of delicious looking burger that he still drools over when he talks about it. I must say the fish was a bit greasy, but to be expected when you haven't had grease in ages and it being deep fried... More

Many friends rave about Yancy's, but it was just average to me. Food was good, fast service, and food arrived in minutes. I had pizza during one visit and a burger the second. Not bad, but nothing to write home about. Food however was consistent, and you can't really go wrong eating there.

Yancy's is a nicely appointed restaurant offering quality home cooked for with Italian specialties. Soups are good and pizza quite good. However, many of their offerings are pre packaged from Cisco. All in all the food was good.

There is nothing to distinguish Yancy's...a limited menu, average food and value, long wait for a simple meal in a uncrowded plain dining room, but an attentive, pleasant wait staff. Yet, in this small border town, it is worth a visit because there are not many options.

The boarder guard recommended it. Got there 5 mins before closing but they were relaxed and friendly. Food was good. A good stop with good people.

This was my 2nd visit, thinking maybe the 1st time was just a bad day for them. My 1st visit had me waiting about 45 minutes for a club sandwich. This time I ordered a grilled chicken Caesar salad and then waited about 40 minutes for it. While it did taste ok, it was served in a tiny bowl and... More

We had a starter salad, lovely, mozzarella sticks, deep fried, not to be recommended, and then my husband had a small delicious pepperoni pizza and their sphaggetti and meatballs was really delicious. Was hilarious as brought our own wine, but they did not have a corkscrew to open it, so my husband had to get into our hired car and... More

We went to this restaurant and were very pleased. I had the clubhouse platter, those with me had a hot turkey sandwich platter including a salad and the meatball soup. The club I shared as it was so filling. Everyone enjoyed their meals and will go back

Thank Brenda I
