I've been here many times over the years and stop here when visiting this area of California. The place is always packed so expect a little wait. It's usually breakfast, but this time it was around noon and I had a plain cheese burger and...More

Nice food, nice taste and good service. This is anything but an upscale date location but that is just fine - good old fashioned food at very reasonable prices. Interesting decor with movie pictures everywhere. Went twice while visiting and would go again. About $10...More
