We really didn't want to eat fast food which seemed to be the only options on the east side of Interstate 5. When we were headed back to 5 to try a different exit we noticed this "cafe" sign a ways down the road on the west side of the highway across from a Walmart. It looked pretty old and we weren't sure we would even stop but, after seeing three trucks parked in the lot and about 6 other cars, we decided to at least look at the menu. The server gave us a menu immediately.
We noticed that about 1/4 of the menu was comprised of beef dishes (burgers, steaks, etc.) and we don't eat red meat. However, there were a number of other options for us so we decided to give it a try. I ordered the gluten free Bombay chicken lettuce wrap and my husband ordered the Broasted Chicken dinner. The server informed us it would take 20 minutes for the chicken because they cook everything fresh. We weren't in a hurry so were able to wait. My Bombay chicken lettuce wrap was ordered with the sauce on the side since I wasn't sure I would like it. It was a mild flavored chunky tomato style sauce. The chicken was grilled to a light golden brown on the outside but still moist on the inside. The onions and bell peppers were a little oily for me. It also had white rice inside. It was tasty. The broasted chicken was very hot when it was served. Since my husband doesn't eat the skin, there was only a small amount of chicken remaining after he picked off the skin. We both received cole slaw as a side and he also had corn bread, french fries, and a salad as part of his dinner. The food was good and definitely better than fast food. They don't appear to salt anything when they cook it so nothing is too salty. You can add however much you like.
If we were in this area again, we would choose this restaurant over the fast food joints. However, it's not a restaurant that we would make a special trip to visit. The servers were all very friendly and it seemed clean. It is an older building so you feel like you have gone back in time.
