“Hit and Miss”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This place used to be terrible but under new management its not to bad now, Friday they have a real good clam chowder thats probably as good as you get inland away from the ocean, you can get a burger cooked the way you like it within reason @ a bit pink instead of burned to death like most places.......prices are so so...............and stay off the prime rib.........sad to say the least.

“Hometown Diner”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

We stopped at Ryderz on our way home from Yosemite National Park. It's a local eatery with basic diner food. They sell breakfast foods all day and my kids enjoyed the waffles and pancakes. Very tasty burgers, crispy onion rings and the best sweet potato fries. I loved the huge slices of sweet potatoes fried to perfection -- crunchy on the outside and smooth on the inside. Delicious!

“Surprisingly good food”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We stopped here after riding the Oakdale Christmas Train. It was after 8 pm and there weren't too many people in the restaurant but we enjoyed the friendly service and the food was very good. The burgers are especially good and the kid's meals are adult sized. Their chili is good and spicy. Their special of the day was prime rib and wasn't bad either with hearty portions. Definitely worth stopping to eat here.

“Great diner with small town feel”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

I spent a week in Oakdale on business. I had the opportunity to eat at Ryderz a few times during that week. Ryderz had a small town diner feel. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The food...bring an appetite! The food is great, albeit diner food. Diner food with a twist. I am not much of a diner fan but the food was great. It seemed like most of the food was house made not just prepackaged junk that you get at many diners. You certainly get a lot of food and the price is a great value.

If you're in the Oakdale area, or just passing through, make sure you stop in to Ryderz and see what they have to offer. As always, thank you for reading.
