Good homemade food

We stopped here for lunch with friends. Unfortunately they had just taken a very LARGE takeout order and everyone in the diningroom was forced to wait for their food. But a good recovery by one of their wait staff convinced us to wait another ten minutes and once the food started rolling out we... read more

Yancy's has decent pizza, with crusts that taste like they're made from scratch. I wish they had green olives as a topping option, though.

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

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.

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
