Excellent Home Cooking

We're on a long road trip and searched yelp to find a restaurant that was decent in a strange town. This was fabulous all around. The people, the food, the service. Loved it. A very pleasant change from most food we encounter while on the road.

It's hard for me to look past the creative (and always delicious) salad menu, but my husband loved their Reuben sandwich, and the lunch specials have all sounded and looked tempted. If you have any room left from the bounteous entree, the buttermilk pie is better than grandmother used to make! Arty decor, homey atmosphere, great service all combine to... More

We stopped for lunch here while in Sonora. We had salads which were both excellent. My husband had a deviled egg salad, and I had the Lola salad (mixed greens, sliced almonds, chicken, mandarin oranges with a homemade raspberry vinaigrette. Yum!

Stopped in for lunch on our way from Austin to Marathon. Food was delicious. Portions were huge. Hubby and I were glad we had decided to share a sandwich. Our traveling companions were likewise delighted. Service was friendly and prompt enough. We will definitely make it our regular stop on trips along IH-10.

We had lunch there before we visited the Sonora Caverns and it was excellent. The one thing to be aware is that they are only open till 2pm and lucky for us the tour guide at the caverns let us know because we were planning to tour the caverns first then eat. I would have been sad to miss this... More

I've heard about this restaurant for a couple of years and never could remember to visit. Only 20 miles away, my friend and I took a road trip Thursday and were amazed that this beautiful place was within our area. The next day I took my son and husband. Everyone was pleasantly satisfied with their meal and experience.

On our way down I-10, we stopped in for lunch on a Thursday around 12:30. The lady who greeted us said we could seat ourselves. The dining area was about 3/4 full. We sat at an empty table and waited, and waited and waited. No menus, no glass of water, no one came by to say "be with you in... More

We decided to drive the 60 miles to Sonora for lunch. Trip Advisor indicated this could be worth a try. We were especially pleased with the waitress who suggested we split the daily special because it would be more than my wife could eat. An excellent suggestion and paired with a side we had a very tasty lunch. The atmosphere... More
