I typically take the salad bar at any restaurant that has one. I do it, not for the all you can eat, but for getting exactly what I like. Then, then, then going back for the best of the favorites. Buttercup Pantry was right at...More

I went with a friend, unfortunately either one of us was pleased with our meals. She had fried chicken, it was so dry that it felt like hard candy. I had a salmon salad and I had much much better

We like this place for breakfast and lunch. Good omelets and other breakfast items along with lunch menu. Senior menu available. Soups are not very good the times I've had them. Salad bar is just OK.

The perfect place to eat if you like the old school diner feel. Experienced waitress, even though she had blue hair. Insert eye roll. The chicken fried steak was very good!

If you are quite hungry and are looking for standard fare, this would be a good place to go. They also have a good assortment of pies, maybe to take with you to Tahoe if that is your final destination.

I am sorry for the delayed response but yes, they are open for Thanksgiving with abbreviated hours. They do not take reservations. I would envy your dinner.
