The food is excellent and fresh. The service has always been extremely good except for one waitress. I just avoid her. Will not let one disgruntled waitress ruin a good thing. She was very rude an does not understand menu items. Or has minimum understanding of the restaurant industry. When I attempted to explain my order, She raised her voice... More

It was the closest restaurant to my visit ate lunch there several time. Always good food, fair proportions. Good service, one of our group ate soup daily and was very complimentary. Hours are 7-2 they did close 30 minutes early one day but manager was very apologetic. Breakfasts looks good and of fair size but I did not have one.... More

Headed back to North San Diego County from Ventura we needed a breakfast stop. As we left the USA gas station we saw the sign.. BEST BREAKFAST. It must have been fate. When we walked in we were met and shown to our very comfortable booth. Our orders were taken quickly and the food delivered as fast. I have to... More

My family recently moved to Oxnard and found this wonderful diner down the street from us. They're only open for breakfast and lunch but it's the best breakfast or lunch in town. Their menu is varied with regular American fare and delicious Mexican dishes. The green chilequiles are amazing! They have great eggs Benedict! Even their BLAT (bacon, lettuce, avocado... More

This place has changed hands a LOT so it also tends to change in terms or quality a lot. The last time I visited, however, it was perfectly good diner fare with acceptable service. Was it hall of fame material? No. But it had potential to be! Maybe they've found their groove by now!

We were visiting and read the reviews, decided to give this place a try. Drove through a rougher area briefly and found it (very easy). Had the Spanish omelette, my wife had a Delchef omelette, and our son had a lemon chicken (he isn't big on breakfast food) sandwich. When they call themselves "The Best," they're 150% right. Every meal... More

Been here a couple times when in town. The food is hot and comes out fast. Chicken fried steak is very good, nice size and can cut with a fork. Will go again when in area to try the pancakes which looked very good.

I ordered the veggie omelette and a hot tea for brekfast, and let me tell you, I was full until the afternoon... Big portions and good prices make for happy customers, while the quality of the food was still amazing. Kind of an older restaurant/cafe but great atmosphere overall. Our waitress was very nice.

In a not all that great area, this place is the best breakfast. I had the California Omelette and it was to die for. The salsa which smothers the cheese filled omelette is amazing. Wonderful coffee. Good service. Clean bathrooms. I doubt I will visit Oxnard again, but I will still keep thinking about this wonderful omelette for some time.... More
