Visited and took pics of pics on walls. This place has been in Tehachapi and family owned for many years. Still styled like a 1950s diner. Wonder pictures and artifacts on walls displaying the history of the town. Worth a stop in when passing through the town.

We ate here while visiting family in the area. Back in the day, my grandmother was a waitress here! Been here several times over the years as a family gathering spot. Food was great too - we ate here for breakfast. Staff is so nice and the portions are huge, it's a must do in Tehachapi

This is a cute little family restaurant and it feels like the locals frequent here. The wait staff call some of their clientele by name.

An old diner that has been maintained but not modernized. Lots of menu choices, clean tables, pleasant service. We ordered sandwiches and enjoyed them. Interesting displays of Tehachapi history.

What a great little place right in the middle of a great little town. Food is hot, fresh, home made and not at all expensive. Good for date night, family outing or just, like us, traveling thru.

My friend ordered the meatloaf and she ate the the whole portion thinking before hand when the plate arrived that she would take half of it home. I ordered the... More
