We were staying 4 blocks away at Monterey Bay where a few of the staff recommended River City Cafe. We had just arrived after a 12hr drive from NJ and wanted to eat at somewhere close. It was around 8pm when we walked in and was seated immediately. My wife and I ordered Buffalo wings as an appetizer, and a house salad each. She ordered some kind of chicken sandwich and I ordered a jumbo hot dog. While waiting for our food, we enjoyed looking at the HUNDREDS of license plates on the walls. Kinda neat. Our wings and salad came quickly and both were a bit more then we expected. The salads were fresh and the bbq wings were excellent. When our main courses arrived, I was not impressed with the size of my "jumbo" hot dog. A bit on the small size but covered in chili and onions. Since I'm pretty sloppy to start off with, I ate it using a knife and fork. My wife enjoyed her chicken sandwich and whatever toppings were on it. After filling up we asked for a take out box for what we didnt finish. We decided to have another drink while eating some peanuts, just so we could throw the shells on the floor. That's what this cafe is famous for. As we were getting ready to go, our server suggested we take a bag of nuts with us. He poured 3 large scoops into a bag saying "enjoy. No charge" COOL!!! Now we dont have to buy snacks in the hotel vending machines. All in all, it was a nice dinner for a reasonable price. We enjoyed it.
