Paul's is known for its breakfast and has very good food for lunch and dinner. Nothing particularly fancy or gourmet, but good, solid and tasty food -- with great staff and friendly service.

Paul's place is a go to place in Merced. Great location and easy parking make it a favorite. Another one of my favorites is the Chrispy chicken salad for lunch and the Bacon Avocado Burger for dinner. Enjoy

We have been dining at Paul's for over 15 years. It is a mandatory stop when we are visiting family. The food is always great and served with a smile. Not the speediest service though.
