“Good change of pace”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

This place is locate in a very busy truck stop area surrounded by various diners. If you like a change of pace and are tired of eating at Denny's or greasy spoon places then this is the place to go to. The inside ambiance provide the traveler with a variety of items to shop, lots of nick-knacks, books, toys, delicatessens to choose from. The food is good, the portions are just right, the price is reasonable and the servers are friendly. I don't like the seating arrangement or the layout of the dining room. There is no space for some sort of privacy. I don't particularly care to be staring at the people sitting at the next booth over or to the side of me. The ambiance in the dining room is okay. The servers are very busy and sometimes unable to be attentive as they want to be or should be. They are hard workers, nice and friendly.

The Travelers Special is always good. We've eaten at the original in Buellton but like this one better.

“Nice place, nice staff. Food was okay.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

Hey, you gotta eat right? I can't say I would trek out to here from somewhere just to have dinner here with friends of family, but for a decent meal that's very easy on the wallet, with friendly people serving, it's worth the stop.

“Over-rated and Over-priced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

This road food stop has atmosphere and a menu that smacks of Denny's or Shari's, except at double the price. Their pea soup isn't all that amazing either. Next time I'd dine at Harris Ranch Inn near Coalinga and overnight at Hotel Mission de Oro in Santa Nella.
