We stopped by on our way home to Ojai with 2 small hungry kids. Tina was very warm and friendly, and was super accommodating with our orders (vegan😳). The decor was fun and funky- kids loved the shark teeth collection. We had a great meal...More

We stopped at the restaurant because we prefer to try local places when traveling. This little run down place is not very clean nor is it kept up but it has its charm and the waitress/ cook was super friendly. If you can over look...More

Tina is hostess, waiter, cook, busboy and dishwasher. She welcomed me as I entered the restaurant. I took her advice and ordered the chicken dinner. The soup was excellent. The salad was huge. It appeared to be a pile of iceberg lettuce but underneath the...More

Got stuck in a horrendous traffic jam when mudslides closed the freeways back to SoCal, stopped and went into this establishment. Food was mediocre, but the atmosphere and the friendliness of the locals made up for it.

Tina is a very nice lady. This diner is in the middle of nowhere like the hotel. Tina gives an abundance of food. Not sure if she normally takes credit/debit cards. The food is average. Quaint/Country Diner. Tina is a one woman organization.

This restaurant is definitely one of a kind. If you like fast food or a stainless steel environment, keep going. However, you will get super friendly service and decent food here. The owner makes you feel right at home. A bit of housekeeping would improve...More
