I just visited this place last week with my parents as we decided to try it out for the first time ever. The menu is actually pretty big, so I was a little undesive on what to other. The menu included breakfast food. I ordered a double burger, my dad a chicken burger, and my mom single burger. The double... More

Tellys is no longer here. New owner. Have not tried it under new ownership. Tellys used to have a car show here on Fridays,but that faded out. There is another Tellys on Boquet Canyon. That one is still open. Used to have great car shows,but no more. May be because of other tenants in the same area complaining.

This restaurant is under new management and is now known as Papaz Grill. We went there for breakfast on Mother's Day and had delicious 4 egg omlets with generous fillings. The only negative about the place is that you have to order at the counter. They bring your food to you and check frequently to see if all is OK.... More

Tellys , now called Papa Z's Burgers. Still the same employees and menu. They have breakfast lunch and dinner. They have a variety of desserts and shakes. My favorite is the grilled ham and cheese on thick sourdough.

There are some plusses to the place, the girls are friendly and helpful, the place is actually pretty cool looking, the portions are generous, the prices are fair. The food is inconsistent. Sometimes cooked okay, sometimes a bit blah. It's just not very good, but I stop short of saying it's bad. The two times my wife and I have... More

This place has really good food and large portions. The zucchini sticks are sooo good, and even the small size is a large portion.

Locally owned. Small town feel. Place is clean and well kept. Good honest American food. Onion rings are good. Big portions, so share. Omelets are good too!
