Don't expect anything real fancy here as Toni's specializes in just plain good food. We ate here twice whilst we were staying in the nearby RV park.

Note -- Credit cards are NOT accepted!

We enjoyed the hamburgers, Chef's salad (huge) and chicken fried steak (huge). The hamburger meat is fresh and they make the patties by hand. The only thing that was disappointing was the Mozzarella sticks which looked and tasted like they came right off the Sysco truck :-(

The milkshake made up for that though - it was really delicious and made from real ice cream, none of that powdered junk.

Everybody there was friendly and helpful but boy that place is *busy*! We noticed several locals who had called in their orders ahead of time. We had short waits each time but nothing terrible. The restaurant is nice and clean and has a back room that is a bit less noisy. There is outdoor seating.

They also have a Thai food truck right next door but we didn't try it. The Thai truck is open every day but not 24 hours.

There is ample RV parking as the lot is very large. It's an easy on/off from the freeway at Guintoli Lane / Janes Road exit. Toni's is on the west side of the freeway.

We'll be back :-)

Toni's is quality old school Arcata diner. It's located adjacent to the spot that was once right on the old highway (now on a frontage road adjacent to the "new" highway alignment and is next to what was once (until the early 80's) the site of the Arcata Drive-In Theatre. Quality home-made diner fare - the burgers are good and hearty, good milkshakes, and they have homemade pies galore. This place is a longtime hangout for the local ranching community and also a regular spot for generations of late-nite post-bar grub seekers.

The food is good - you can find better burgers in town if you want to hunt around but this sort of establishment is a dying breed in this Country, so enjoy it while you still can.

We always visit Toni's when we are in town. The burgers are made from the freshest ground beef and the fries are always hot and not greasy. The milk shakes are second to none in Humboldt.

Although Toni's is a bit pricey, the food is totally worth it. Toni has worked very hard over the years to make this the best burger in Humboldt! Go Toni!!!

The one thing you need to know before stopping at Toni's is that they DO NOT take credit or debit cards of any kind. They do, however, have an ATM that will gouge you for another $2.

I've only been here one time and I doubt I will return. The staff is somewhat surly, the prices are too high for what you get and the food is just ok. Their food looks nothing like the pictures shown here on Trip Advisor. Very disappointing.

One of the all time best secrets in the rain forest. The cobbler is killer along with everything on the menu. Check It Out Aj un Arcata
