I can remember eating in the Buellton, CA branch when I was a teenager with my parents, I'm now a septuagenarian, so you can say these restaurants have been here a while (established 1924).. I've been eating at this location since it opened in the 60's or 70's. I like their soup and other food. Soup, salad, and a burger...... More

See title, they do have other food but I have never tried AZ anything else but the pea soup. They do have souvenir type items for sale.

Had always heard about "Pea Soup Andersen's" - so had to stop when driving by. So glad we did! Wonderful food, reasonable prices and speedy (not super friendly, but speedy) service! Enjoyed the soup, but was honestly surprised at how "thin" it is... it's not the kind of soup where you stick your spoon in and it stands up -... More

Delicious Pea Soup, excellent salads. You should not go away hungry from Andersen's. good service. Older and could use some updates, but still a great place to visit.

After a long day of driving, what a wise choice we made in stopping for dinner here. It was quite busy so that's a good sign. Liked that our sweet waitress brought us warm rolls right away. My husband had meatloaf with mashed potatoes/yummy gravy, and very nice fresh vegetables. Portions were large. I had teriyaki chicken, rice and veggies.... More

Stopped by this place when we were travelling back to Palmdale from San Francisco. We had a hearty lunch in this restaurant located along Interstate 5. I chose the porkchops with potatoes and applesauce, and also had a taste of their famous Pea Soup. Overall a great dining experience after a long drive. The restaurant's interior has a medieval feel... More

I stop here for lunch when traveling from Seattle to Palm Springs. It is convenient off I-10 with quality food and quick efficient service! I love their Pea soup served in a sourdough bread bowl. It is as good as I have ever had! Portions are generous prices reasonable with a shop in the lobby where you can buy their... More

Stopped here on the road home and my wife and I had an outstanding lunch. We couldn't decide with all the restaurant choices and are glad we chose Pea Soup Anderson's. We would stop here every time.

We arrived before the lunch crowd and were seated right away! The server was very helpful! The service was fast and the pea soup and sandwiches were very tasty. What I enjoyed was a hot sit down meal and out again on the road in less than 45 minutes! And that included shopping for a few souvenirs. They have things... More

If you are driving between the SF and LA, avoid it during the holiday. But if you can't avoid it, stop at Andersen's. The food is good, the service is quick and polite, and the bill won't shock you.
