My husband and I stumbled across this place on a Monday afternoon, it was quiet and we immediately felt welcome by the staff. Service was prompt and very friendly, my husband had the Philly Steak sandwich and I had the BBQ Bayou Burger, both were delicious and very reasonably priced.

This place also appeals to lawyers, plaintiffs, defendants for the nearby courthouse. Can't say I really loved the food but its decent.

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.

I heard that this place was good so I wanted to give it a try. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich and I was not very impressed with it. it was a bit salty for my taste. I had french fries with my sandwich and I think they were ok. My friend had the 49er sandwich with potato salad, and... More

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!
