The BBQ chicken sandwich I got had no sauce. Thats weird. It had little cooked in but almost none. I asked for some hot BBQ and they gave me some over the top hot (but good) sale with 30+ chiles including ghost.

The guy that seated us was not friendly, no smile or how are you doing tonight. There were many seats available in the front and he sat us back in a cove with a older couple that were drunk and acting like teenagers and needed to get a room When we left he didn't ask anything about our dinner or...

We had never been here before but we heard they were having Thanksgiving dinner and there's just two of us, so we thought we'd try it... we were SO SURPRISED!!! The food was EXCELLENT-- easily the best food in Modesto (which is not saying much since everything in Modesto is a chain restaurant), but it was also easily the best... More

This restaurant has been around a long time. I like it for their prime rib dinner. It is the best. They also have a great salad bar too. If you just want a beer and appetizer's the bar area is great too. Live music on Thursday nights brings in a lot of locals. Enjoy the food and sometimes entertainment.

We stopped here for a late-ish breakfast on the way from Alameda to Yosemite. It was a pretty busy morning for the restaurant yet the service was still pretty quick. Coffee was filled up on a regular basis and the food was quickly prepared. It was also very pleasant - the pancakes are really good. If you're heading East on... More

Love their salad bar and sandwich and/or soup lunch. Great place for the girls to have a lunch outing. My husband really enjoys The Fruit Yard also. Good menu for any meal. Nice décor inside and very pleasant grounds outside for a little walk after your meal.

I guess they pack them in every day at lunchtime. So said the hostess and it was true when I visited. Don't think I'll be one of their patrons in the future. Service was pretty quick. Waitress was friendly enough but overworked. When I came in and when I left I was snarled at by the person at the register.... More

Was in town visiting family and they suggested the place as there is a variety of food to satisfy a group of 7. (With children). Some had the buffet and others ordered off the menu. Everything was delicious. Make sure to leave room for dessert!! You will not be disappointed!!!

Stopped by to grab some bar-b-q for lunch. While waiting for food was able to buy some fruit and almonds. Could not believe the selection of dried fruits and seasoned nuts. Lunch was delicious. I highly recommend the blue lunch special!

We ate lunch here and they have an extensive menu from which to order. I had a chicken breast club, and it was quite tasty. My husband had a French dip. He said the sandwich was very dry, but dipping made it fine. The French fries are average. Our waitress was very good and kept our drinks full. This restaurant... More
