This cozy little diner has the best meat loaf, mashed potatoes with gravy and garlic toast. My husband had the pork chops, and he said they were over cooked. He would rate them 3 out of 5. Order the meat loaf! It’s scrumptious!

Been here several times over the years while in Chester (usually on way to LassenNP). Good sized servings, OK prices, friendly, locals' favorite. Had four star and two star breakfasts; I'll average it at 3 star. My advice is stay with the basics.

It's a small restaurant with good food, specially the salmon! For those who enjoy different things, there's liver with onions.

We both had burgers, fries and drinks late in pm after hiking in LassenNP. Hit the spot for both of us. We're satisfied with the experience and will return.

This restaurant has been in Chester for over 50 years. Although it changed hands 15 or so years ago, the new owners kept the same traditions as the previous owner. You can usually split an order and the cinnamon rolls are large enough for a...More

The pot roast was the only item in the menu that attracted my attention, and it didn't disappoint. It was so tasty I almost finished the whole enormous portion, which could easily feed three adults. It came with a meal-size side salad, choice of potato...More
