Excellent staff, attention to detail, and Clam Chowder on a Friday is unbelievably good! Thickest chowder I have ever had anywhere! Will definitely return to Cindys on future visits to Oakdale.

One of the things we love about California is that the state has retained its local restaurants, those quaint family owned places that have survived the spread of generic chain restaurants across the country. This is one of those places. We were driving to San Francisco on our way back from Yosemite National Park and decided to stop in Oakdale... More

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.
