“Good service, good food”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

5 stars mean exceptional to me - and I'd almost give this restaurant a rating of 4 but for perhaps a bit of inattention by the cook. Over medium means (to me) that the whites are firm throughout and not runny. Not the case at my last visit.

Also requesting 'crisp' hash browns got me a better serving that is typical - but crisp and brown on one side and white on the other also suggests being distracted - surprising since there were only 2 other patrons when I had breakfast.

All the same I'll go back again next time - the breakfast was reasonably priced and very tasty. And the hostess was attentive and pleasant.

SLO Coast Diner now - wish it was on Google - they deserve more business.

“Closed - now excellent Slo Coast Diner”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Zaki's is now the Slo Coast Diner. Just had a fantastic breakfast there! Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food & people are great.

“Good breakfast”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Family owned. Very friendly. The owner, Zak, will usually check to see if everthing was good. The exterior could use some work, but it is clean and good inside.

“Good food, Nice People”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

This restaurant appears to be owned and run by a family. They were very welcoming and helpful. The food tasted good and we'd eat there again if we were in the area. Like someone else said, don't judge this place by its outside. It looks like a dive but once you're inside it's nice.

“Yummy food”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

I was sad to hear that the city allowed Denny's a chain restaurant to display a big sign, but would no t let Zaki's display a sign directing people to their restasurant. I wish more people would be able to see it from the road, otherwise they can drive right past it, and miss it not even knowing that it is there.
