We decided to stop here at Pollart Flat and have a quick bite to eat. My patty melt was one of the best I've ever had! Typical diner food but really good.

This used to be our favorite spot at Shasta Lake to eat. Sadly, it has gone downhill. We ordered a tuna melt and it was a weird brownish tuna meat with little cheese. The smell was strange so it went uneaten. My 3 friends didn't like their food either. One said he poked his head in the kitchen accidentally trying... More

Great truck stop diner breakfast, served fast and reasonable price. Nothing fancy, but better than a boring chain restaurant..

I’m sure the cooks here have many goals and passions, but one of them must be making the best pies humanly possible. To me, it rivals Marie Callendar’s best efforts. And that’s Marie’s main business. One of the cook’s husbands brags about his wife’s pies that at first I dismissed as biased loyalty. I’m so glad to report that the... More

They are not open on Sun! And we were running with about a quarter of a gallon of gas! Luckily they were inside doing some work with a new fire suppression system and turned on a pump. Saved. Their restaurant was closed also but they were making coffee for a truckers religious service in the parking lot and we were... More

Eveny once in a while you stop when travelling, seeking only a sandwich and coffee and wind up coming away with far more than that. You arrive a stranger and leave having made new friends, you arrive hungry and leave well satisfied. Pollard Flats Food and Fuel is one of those places. Corporate chains like Cracker Barrel and Bob Evans... More

Staff was wonderful and food was delicious. So glad we found this place. Had both breakfast and dinner last trip. This is not fine dining - this is road trip diner food but among the best. Will definitely be back.
