Unbelievable. Out of my last dozen visits they maybe got two of my orders correct. First, they blame it on the speaker so I go inside. Well they just can't get my order right. One time two large orders of cheese fries were missing. Another time a hot dog was missing. I ordered an Italian sausage once and asked for... More

Everything here tastes great. I get the Italian Beef dipped. "Love the gravy" with Cheddar cheese and both sweet and spicy peppers. Side of Cheese fries. And for dessert.. Their Strawberry Short Cake can feed two. The Chocolate cake is delicious too. Chicago dogs and chicken sandwich follow second. My wife says their burgers are excellent quality. So flavorful. I...

The atmosphere was cool, and the food was pretty good. If you want a quick bite or a place to sit and visit with friends this is perfect. They have a large variety of food and salad.

Since the recession began, I feel like California's the parks just don't do food right the way they used to. So a block over is where you can find me on a lunch or dinner break the days I'm out at the parks. Great Food, Great price, nice atmosphere. They even have a drive thru, similar concept to Farmer Boys.

This place has never disappointed me. The staff is friendly and helpful.the food is delicious. The beef sandwich is very good, I recommend getting it dipped. The sausages are good , the skin on the sausages has a snap to them,and the flavor is great. Chili cheese fries are tasty. But I think their crowning glory is their chocolate cake,... More

The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. There is something for everyone! It was very crowded when we were there so be prepared for a line and a possible lack of indoor seating. We sat on the patio which was enclosed and had heaters as needed.
