Very clean place to eat, service was over the top. Food beyond expectations and served hot and plated nicely. And they serve my hot sauce instead of just the usual. lost a phone there and they were very courteous on returning to pick it up. Needed more stars to color in.

We arrived at this restaurant after 8 p.m. but thought it was only 7 since we were on PST. Two people in our party ordered the popcorn shrimp and neither really finished them despite the fact we had been on the road and ate lunch at about 1 p.m. The popcorn shrimp tasted kind of doughy and was a disappointment....

Very good food and decent prices. We know the cook and he makes very decent portion sizes. Worth stopping for breakfast if traveling through Ontario.

The breakfast buffet is awesome. Hash browns are from red potatoes, food is great, a fair selection of foods to choose from. I'd rather eat here than Arby's next door at the pilot.

I stopped in Ontario for fuel and decided to get a bite to eat. Becky is far from wait staff material she can't keep order straight I didn't get my soup until my main meal was coming out. She was overwhelmed but only had 3 tables. She also was sweating down her face while leaning over customers to place plates.... More

One of the disadvantages of living in a rural area is the lack of interesting places to dine out. For the past 20 years, Ontario Oregon has--with a few short-lived exceptions--been a relatively boring town in which to dine if you were not in the mood for Mexican food. (There are at least three excellent Mexican restaurants in town.) This... More

We stopped at DJ's for dinner on a Sunday, based on reviews on various websites... it looked like we would be getting good, basic food. We should have known something was amiss when the restaurant was virtually empty at 6:30 PM. The server was clueless, but polite, offering that she had been there since 7AM, she had a difficult time... More
