Cheeseburgers were underdone...had to send back for fresh ones. New ones were over cooked. Southwestern salad was tasteless. Fried onions were very large and fries were very salty. A lot of flies inside the restaurant. Staff were pleasant. CASH only...not good for travellers.

A typical American Diner with usual fare, ribs, steaks, burger, hotdogs. A large barn-like building with plenty of seating. Staff were a little slow even though the place is set up as a fast food outlet. Food was ok but nothing special.

We ordered take-out from here this past Sunday while in Cambria. We enjoy eating with a view of the ocean so we took our food back to a bench overlooking Moonstone Beach. The onion rings were awesome and the ribs were huge, tender and full...More
