While we had stopped here before, we had not been for breakfast. We were pleased with the quality of the servings and the very competitive pricing. Our selections were nicely prepared and would satisfy the hungriest lumberjack. We stopped on a Sunday morning and the restaurant was very busy. The service was a little slower than desirable, but understandable based... More

Your typical diner, except for friendly and efficient service. And, of course, the gigantic serving size. I picked a bad day to start my diet. Not! A late breakfast of chicken fried steak with a side of sausage gravy. Nice, peppery gravy, with a hint of spicy heat.

While the house specialty is BBQ and ribs, they have a nice menu with enough choices for the average family. None of our party of four had BBQ and found the variety to be adequate and the food very good. Special salads were excellent and the pulled pork plate was large and rated very well. Definitely worth a try.

My husband and I have driven by this restaurant many times but this is the first time we stopped to eat. We decided to share meals so we ordered the brisket and the Sierra salad. The brisket was delicious and fall-off-the-fork tender and it included 2 sides and a cornbread muffin. We decided to have the onion rings and the... More

I was visiting friends and we celebrated a birthday here. A delightful place, friendly staff and really good food. My companion and I ordered the Ortega Burger, the Mushroom Burger, a beer, some wine, and those wonderful desserts pictured below. Sierra Grill does To-Go Service and also caters your event. There is ample off-street parking, but it fills quickly. We... More

We have been here a few times and been disappointed every time. They say their meats are smoked, but they are obviously boiled and baked in a regular oven. The meat is dry, rubbery, and tasteless, and never has a smoke ring. Also, make sure if you order the brisket that they don't try to serve you the "leavin's" ...

I have driven by this restaurant /bar a few times. From the outside it looks nice. Even going in the decor is dated but not too bad. The service though is outrageously bad. The servers have no idea how to work together. I waited for 30 minutes to get a beer and soda and the bar was not even busy.... More

Went for Happy Hour as advertised in front of restaurant.Ordered the pulled pork sliders and beer special. When the bill arrived and was more than the menu prices, waitress admitted others had pointed that out but did not offer to adjust the price: said the menu prices were incorrect! At time of order, this "error"on the menu should have been... More
