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

We were staying at the adjoining motel and were given breakfast coupons for this restaurant. Expectations were somewhat low. However, the next morning, unable to shake the absolute, inescapable responsibility that comes with reviewing for Tripadvisor, we chose to use the formerly mentioned coupons. From a rather limited list you are allowed to choose 3 items. I asked for a... More
