“Needed a 2nd Stomach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We ate breakfast here and were not disappointed. The applewood smoked bacon was thick and delicious. The biscuits were fluffy, the gravy flavorful. The sweet cream pancakes were delicious. I only wish this chain was close to home so we could go more often!

“Decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

It was nothing really memorable. I actually prefer dennys myself. The inside has a nice charm to it but besides that the food isn't much better than another breakfast place.

“Very Good! Wish we had one in San Diego.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We read up on this before heading to Tulare and were not disappointed. I had the bear paw (lite) chicken fried steak (lite...hah!) My husband had the full order. The food filled the huge plates that were more like platters. Everything was great including the friendly staff. Hint...if you are staying at the Best Western in town, show your room key for 10% off. We only wish there was a location close to home in San Diego area. Will make a point to stop here anytime we are in the Tulare area!
