Haven't been here for a while though it's a seven minute walk. However, my student came by and wanted to go to lunch. The place we walked to across the parking lot was closed so we headed over. I had a burger and he had a hot platter. The food was fine and my student left with take home for... More

My wife and I were introduced to the Waffle Shop in Jackson, CA when we visited a relative. Friendly customers and staff, clean, obviously well liked by locals. Had a fine menu, wide range of selections and reasonable prices. Their coffee was good and hot ... and the waitresses kept your mug filled without asking. The customers were children, young... More

We have been here many times. They usually have very reasonable priced specials on a board as you enter the restaurant. We have had several of the breakfasts and lunch specials. All have been very good. They have a nice selection on their menu of breakfasts and lunch.

We were on a road trip and happened to drive by this little gem. Plenty of parking. Friendly servers. Hubby had meatloaf with mashed tatoes, veggies, salad, and dinner roll for $7.99. I had steak sandwich with fries for $6.99. Can't even get fast food for that price. All was plentiful and yummy.

The worst breakfast I've ever had out. Even the coffee wasn't drinkable. Shockingly bad! I'd like to give them a second chance one day as I normally have a 3 strikes policy, but I haven't been able to do it yet. It was that bad.

Been going here for many years. Always eat the chicken-fried steak (w/3 eggs) or the pork chops (w/3 eggs). Okay, it is a lot of food, be prepared. Comes with biscuits and gravy, sausage chunks in there. The service is friendly, local folks that take time to chat. Location is a bit hard to find if not a local, behind... More

Older restaurant located in strip mall adjacent to Hwy 49 in Jackson, that was recommended to us by several local as a place to get a fine breakfast. Place is a throwback to another era. Dark, older inside, with naugahyde booths and small tables/chairs dot this establishment. It is obvious after just being here a few moments it is a... More

This place is frequented by a large number of local retired folks. The servings are generous and the prices fair to low. The waffles and omelets come in many combinations. The coffee is good.

We have eaten here several times. The food is really good and service is always friendly. The location is easy to reach but if you don't drive up 49 you will miss it.
