“old school”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

40 years ago I first ate at Latifs. Its very basic old style food. The restaurant is now considered retro in design. They are famous for their pies. I love the banana cream. If you want basic American food and a piece of pie try this place!

“comfort food”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

This is an older cafe with large counter. Food was excellent. Home baked breads and pies. The elder president Bush and his wife ate here back in 1988.

“Classy Old-Style Diner”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

The servers are personable, the food is delicious and the decor is definitely 1950's. See the chair that President George H.W. Bush used when he ate there.

“Blast from the past”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

I go to Turlock for business and my clients took me here. It's got that classic diner look & feel that's quickly disappearing from America. This place is legit. Yeah, the food isn't cutting edge, but it's decent. I last got the breakfast burrito and it was downright yummy. Now about those pies . . . . I'm yet one more reviewer to rave about them. The lemon meringue was soooo good I'm still thinking about it.
