This was not what we were looking for as a place for breakfast. Not a traditional restaurant. No ambience, no wait service, you order at a counter, have to ask for the breakfast menu because there isn't a menu board for it. My over medium eggs were over easy, that can happen. My hash browns were actually cold and not... More

We stopped for a bite on our way out of Mendocino County. Two of the four in our group had burgers which were way over cooked. I would have given this place a Poor rating, however, one person in our group ordered the Carnitas special and said they were the best he has ever had. So, if you are going... More

A nice change from fast food joints. We had tacos, his was chicken,mine beef. Very good, nice workers. Clean, yet reminded us of "back in the day". Will stop again on our way to Mendocino.

The egg sandwiches are good and cheap if you are running low on cash. Splurge and go across the street for coffee, Redwood is really affordable but the coffee has little flavor.

Good food, but the service was less than friendly. It was speedy and a good place to grab a quick meal. Just don't expect to chat it up with the staff!

3* - Non chain fast food It Boonville around lunch time and need a place for a quick lunch so stopped in at the Redwood Drive in. This is an old school “malt shop” or “Diner” as we used to say back in the day – but I’m sure none of you are that old. Places like this were also... More

This is a throw back to another era. A simple diner with full american breakfast to soak up all the wine you tasted the night before, They also offer a full selection of Mexican food throughtout the day and dinner too

I don't normally stop anywhere to eat between Mendocino and Santa Rosa but it was lunch time and my brother (a Mendocino area local) recommended this place. I ordered the Ortega Chicken Burger and a shake. It came piping hot and was excellent. Plenty of veggies on it too. My mother who was a burger freak would have approved.

Our visit to nearby Navarro extended a few hours, so Libbys was closed and I was hungry. The food is simple but nicely prepared. Its a drive-in so we ate outside on a picnic table from trays and plastic. Fish taco was good.

Great breakfast, lunch and dinner, even late night on weekends in the summer. The menu offers a mix of your standard American breakfast foods, burgers and the full range of hispanic foods, all very well prepared. Sometimes on weekends in the summer, they have a late night outdoor taco stand that is a gathering place for whole families, from toddlers... More
