Road trip with the girls and didn't want fast food. Saw the sign and took a gamble for lunch. Tasty sandwiches-egg salad and BLT got thumbs up, but ask for extra lettuce for egg salad. Scrambled eggs served more omelette-style, but very good and not greasy. Clean, charming, small family luncheonette. Terrific and friendly service. Spotless restrooms. Good value.Will stop again!

Hubby and I stopped for a quick dinner on the way to CA this evening. Playing if safe, we decided to order the night's special pot roast and chicken fried steak off the menu. The Chicken fried steak came with their house salad, which was a pleasant surprise. It was large enough to share which we did, fresh and loaded with cheese, olives, ham bits and the usual salad fixings. Now comfortably awaiting the main course with less trepidation, we looked around to admire the antiques and books throughout the place. Then came the great disappointment. Right away we noticed the vegetable,corn, was discolored and soggy, obviously reheated too many times. The pot roast was in the form of shredded beef and tasted burnt then overcooked. The chicken fried steak was the worst I've ever had. It tasted like bad meat and the gravy that came on the side was watery with lumps of cornstarch. Hubby ate his and prayed all the way to LA for clean bathrooms. I picked a few fries off my dish and left the corn and all but two bites of the chicken. To add insult to injury, the hand written check was added incorrectly, overcharging by a couple of dollars. We paid a couple dollars over since the waitress was O.K. and left.

When in Blythe we often go to Steaks and Cakes for Breakfast / Lunch. The food is reasonably priced and you get healthy portions. Always good and quick service. Good family atmosphere. Rarely a wait.

We always look for non-chains and this one was a winner . My wife had an excellent hamburger and I Had a delicious machaca -- like A fajita with dried beef. Nothing fancy but good food, reasonable prices, and fine service.

The food is pretty decent (heavy) stick to your ribs type of food. The servers are all really nice, and the locals seem to be pretty nice every time I have eaten there.
