“Rude and uninviting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

As a frequent traveler to this area I wanted to try some place I hadn't been and thought this place looked very "roadside retro". The service was painfully slow from being seated to ordering to food delivery, in fact the only time we had speedy service was when we paid the bill. The food was average and the restaurant is in desperate need of an update. Turns out it is not retro, but dated. Such a neat little town with nice folks and a brilliant location ... I'll be going anywhere but here again.

“Disgusting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Went in to r&f and was completely disgusted. I waited for a short while to get helped and the waitress looked annoyed that I was there not to mention that her personal hygiene could have used attention. After studying the menu we made out choices after waiting about 15 mins for our good the waitress soon appeared and let us know that the item i order was out of stock she dropped my companions food and walked away. Just as I was about to ask for a menu we noticed a bug on the plate that was served to us. Horrified we got the attention of the waitress and she was not surprised she then took the plate flicked off the bug and set it back Down we left rite away

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

After having an awful experience in MD ranch cookhouse with an extremely rude waitress R&F was a haven. We visited on a Wednesday when it was 'Mexican' night, the main menu looked good but the Mexican food was really good and fantastic value. The restaurant was really busy but service was good and the whole place had a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. It seemed like it was well used by the locals which is always a good sign.
I would highly recommend to anyone staying or travelling through Monticello.

“Don't go”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We walked in about 1:45 not realizing they close at 2:00. Nobody said anything so we sat down and ordered. The waitress who the hostess and probably the cook too did not seem very happy. There were 8 of us. When she took our drink order she mentioned they closed at 2:00. We offered to leave because we could tell she was not happy we were there. She said we were fine so we stayed. The service ended up ok. The food was ok. The worst part was that she included the tip in the bill but failed to mention it to my husband when he paid. So she got a double tip and didn't say anything to him. I'm sure that's not the first time that happened with her. We won't be back. Bad vibe from the very beginning.
