When we arrived, the place was packed, but we were seated at the counter in no time. We were served efficiently and quickly! Both the corned beef hash and the eggs, sausage ( delicious) and hotcakes were terrific. I'd return for any meal!

Quaint, family owned restaurant in old downtown Temecula. Very rustic and great family atmosphere. I ordered the country fried steak, eggs over easy and well done hash browns. The country fried steak was perfect and not covered in breading and the hash browns were crunchy!...More

We stop in here at least once a month. The best hash browns, and biscuits and gravy. Hash browns are toasty on the inside and tender and moist inside. I usually have eggs with them but not this morning. I had their oatmeal for the...More
