Hubby ordered enchiladas with green sauce while I ordered a BLT. BLT was fine but hubby said his enchiladas were awful and much too spicy. He ate only a few bites.

We stopped for a meal while traveling and it was fine. The service was friendly and fast. The tender pot roast was indeed tender. My burger was huge and good. I must say the jalapeño popper appetizer was the best. I don't think they were frozen and they were very crisp but not greasy.

Average, average, average. Feels like a diner in a drive through town which is exactly what it is. Nothing outstanding about the service, and the Mexican food was okay, just a bit bland. My turkey sandwich was okay. Beats fast food. Thought it was slightly overpriced. Not an experience to write home about,but no complaints either.

The sweet tea was good but how can you mess that up? Had the wet chicken burrito. Dry bland chicken wrapped in a tortilla with some cheese & sauce on top that's it . My friend had the chicken fried steak dinner, obviously out of a box. Pretty nasty. One saving grace the service was good.

We stopped in recently for dinner. We had a big group and the greeter was very perplexed. He said we should have made a reservation and I said I tried but no one answered the phone. It was busy but there weren't very many waitresses. We waited quite awhile for drinks and it took even longer for our food. The... More

Serves Mexican now, same location, closed Sundays, rundown looking. They fry everything on a flat grill, so if you want a fried steak (!) you can get thet here.

I've eaten here four or five times...the best entrees (often Mexican or unusual combinations) are as good as La Posada...have also had bland, blue-plate diner food absolutely unexceptional in any way. Sometimes, as when my son and I stopped there, he had a wonderful Cuban sandwich and my blue plate turkey made me long for Bob Evans in Ohio. Ask... More

Not sure of other choices in Santa Rosa, but there is a McDonalds. Went here at hotel clerk's recommendation. Not great. Just average food, overpriced for taste and quantity. They do have a large menu but judging by my fetucinni alfredo and husband's sopapilla, I wouldn't expect any of it to stand out. First impression when we walked in was... More

We were one of two couples who walked in the door at the same time. I was a bit surprised to see a turning Christmas tree in the corner all lit up. There is a older man standing at the reception/pay stand who just looks at us, does not say anything, just kind of stares at the four of us.... More
