Ten bucks. That's it for my handmade burger with pulled pork, country bacon, BBQ sauce (just the right amount) fried onion strings on a delicious bun that didn't fall apart with a choice of side. Delicious! Inexpensive. Fun and friendly service. Definitely going back there next time I'm in town. Can't lose here, folks.

A cute restaurant in the heart of town. I ordered the Festive 49er sandwich with potato chips. The sandwich was simple and pricey. Server was polite. Restaurant was clean.

Visiting Sonora for the weekend, lots of little places to eat but there window caught our eye. As soon as we sat, the pretty waitress came over took our drink orders. We ordered and to our surprise the food was out in no time. It was delicious and fresh. Would definitely stop here again!

On what is probably the busiest day every year in Sonora, Ca. the "Roundup Parade" before the rodeo, we were amazed to receive outstanding service and delicious food. It was not obvious by either of those two things that they were swamped with customers and orders. Highly recommended!

Good quality, tastey lunch for our family lunch. The price was sensible. Might not be right if you are in a hurry.

I get a sandwich there at least once a week. Good value, great service, good food. I just call in, walk down a few blocks & pick up my sandwich.
