I visited Paul's Place this morning for my friends bday. Ok long story short, I've been here many times and always enjoyed the food but today was their off day.

Imagine going to your grandmother's house in the 70's. It's not low fat but everything tastes better with butter and gravy! They will make you anything and listen to any request to modify your meal to make it healthier. There is meatloaf, and hot turkey sandwiches, veggie burgers piled high with avocado, giant milkshakes, and fresh pie. Our family comes... More

Went there to a Christmas breakfast and was very pleased. Seating was very fast in view of the fact there was a wait. Waitress was very pleasant and thorough and took our order and delivered it to us in record time. Always made sure our coffee and drinks were always full. Very clean and family concerns taken care of immediately.... More

This place is great. The staff are personable and charming. The food is anything you would want and it's relatively clean. Nice atmosphere. Keep the coffee coming here, great for long breakfasts for enjoyable conversation.

Stopped for a quick lunch on our way to Yosemite. Ordered hamburgers and fries and couldn't finish either. From reviews I thought I would be getting a fresh made hand pressed patty. Greatly disappointed--not even close to what I expected. The highlight was meeting and chatting with Merced residents, the wait staff, and bus boys.

This is a place to run into people you know. The food is just average--ok at best. The prices aren't bad but they could use a menu and food quality update.

The lunch specials were really great. Nice soup selection and the sandwiches and everything else are fresh made. You can even get a fresh slice of pie with any meal that are displayed in the case as you walk in. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Prices for everything is adequate. Great place for all ages and meetings

The staff greeted and sat my party quickly. The food was wonderful and arrived quickly. The staff asked several times if we needed anything and if our meals were satisfactory. On a scale of 1 to 10, the meals we're all 10's!

Paul's is known for its breakfast and has very good food for lunch and dinner. Nothing particularly fancy or gourmet, but good, solid and tasty food -- with great staff and friendly service.

Paul's place is a go to place in Merced. Great location and easy parking make it a favorite. Another one of my favorites is the Chrispy chicken salad for lunch and the Bacon Avocado Burger for dinner. Enjoy
