If you've never visited the Pasty Kitchen, you definitely must add it to your list. Simple and inexpensive but delicious. I always get the beef pasty and a big side of beef gravy to put on it. YUM. Note that there are only a few outdoor tables to eat at. This is mostly a grab and go type of place.

I had seen this place on a TV Review Station... and thought I would try it... today was the day. I'll be going back. There is NEVER a wait... everything is piping hot and ready to go.... You see them making the Pasty's right in front of you as you are ordering... It smells like grandma's kitchen. I had 1... More

I get the chicken m daughter gets the beef wonderful with gravy. No real indoor seating there is tables outside, so not a good place to go to when raining (oh it never rains in California). It's is mostly a take out.

My daughter was visiting me and had hoped to find pasties like she had enjoyed in England. We decided to try this place, and she felt that the beef pasty came close to what she remembered. My son and I loved it, and I really liked the gravy. My son loves potato salad, and gave the potato salad here a... More

Delicious pasties made quickly and for a good price. I also tasted both the cherry and apple dessert pasties. I would definitely go back for the lunch pasties but I didn't think there was anything special about the dessert ones.

Ive passed this place dozens of times and never thought to stop in,however, one day I was tired of burgers and tacos. I ordered one of each; beef, chicken, and veggie ... they were out of veggie. Of the two, I prefer the beef as it had a little more flavor. I did not order gravy on the side... probably... More

My SO's father is in after surgery rehab nearby and asked us to get him a pasty. I had not had one since travelling to the UP of MI years ago. The place is tiny and appears to be family run. The food was excellent and gave me the opportunity to bore my poor SO with tales of my travel... More

I was first introduced to this place back in 2000 . Since then it has been a great place to stop by for a quick bite . It minimal menu Beef,Chicken or Vegetable has made it and easy stop and go . If you decide to go ask for the gravy. Great customer service . Parking in the back !

I used to live on pasties when I was a construction worker in N. Wis/MN/MI, a long long time ago, they`re best fresh, but reheat easy and taste great. Beef, potatoes, turnips or rutabagas,and maybe carrots or onions, all wrapped and cooked inside a pastry shell, healthy too. This place has excellent pasties,

This place has been here as long as I remember and has always been super tasty. Fast service and always warm as they pull them out of the oven when you order.
