“Wish I had gone someplace else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Arrived in the area after lunch, but well before dinner hours on a Fri; so after reading some reviews thought this place would have a variety of offerings to find something good to eat (hopefully I just picked the wrong item). I was shown to a table right away, but didn't realize it was right next to where the waiters put in their orders over the wall from me so it was rather noisey. My waiter was attentive, but not hovering (a plus-good job)! I had started out from Santa Barbara in the early AM with only 2 cokes on the way (but I'm not a big eater), so I debated on pizza, or salad and pasta, or a special; but then looked over at a table AND saw the saw of a pasta plate served and thought oh my that's four servings for me. So, I settled on one of the chicken/bacon/avocado sandwiches. It arrived on toasted bread (which fell apart upon the first bite), the special mayo didn't exist, the tomato slices were so thick they overwhelmed everthing else. As the sandwhich fell apart I had to eat it with a knife and fork. I had a few french fries and half my sandwhich before I was finished.
On the up side, although I couldn't get a parking space near the front of the restaurant; one doesn't have to pay for parking in the shopping center parking area (what other cities don't charge you now a days?)
