Not that meat loaf is all they offer... Oakdale may not at first glance appear to be very cosmopolitan, but it offers a surprising variety of dining options. We have a couple of favorite Mexican & Chinese places, but we wanted something else the other night, and were pleased to be greeted with cheerful service, handsomely redone decor (since an... More

They have a great Senior Menu plus daily specials. They are very attentive to your needs. I love going there on Friday's for their Prime Rib Special. The dessert is good too!

Stopped here for dinner with my wife while on vacation. Nice full menu of American and Mexican favorites, however, the feel of the restaurant is consumately American. Nice relaxed atmosphere and the food was tasty and hot...cooked to order! I recommend the beef enchiladas...using seasoned pulled beef...YUM! The pies are 'insane' here, as well! Service is fast, friendly and accurate.... More

Always a good meal and sweet service. Daily specials are my favorite way to explore their menu. Had the shrimp this time and prepared juicy though breaded. $3.50 home made pie! Even senior plates are plentiful.

I am not sure how this place stays in business. I have been here three times and we are usually the only ones in their if not a couple of others and we still have to wait too long for the food and they got our orders wrong a few times.

Travelling from San Francisco to Groveland, Yosemite, in need of a coffee, we spotted Cindy's sign and decided to stop. This was the best decision we made that day as this is an excellent family owned diner with a varied menu. We decided to eat and enjoyed good service, good food and free refills of coffee. We would thoroughly recommend... More

We pulled in for brunch on our way to Yosemite from San Francisco. The staff were really friendly and it is obviously a place where the local residents eat. We just had a sandwich but they were really nice and tasty and it was perfect for what we wanted.
