Food like mama used to make. Stopped after church, before cranking up the motorhome to head home. The food was great with fast, friendly service. The place was packed for good reason. This is possibly the friendliest place we stopped at on this trip.

It was very busy when I went for breakfast. Luckily I had lots of time to kill as the service was quite slow. Initially I got someone else's order but that was resolved quickly. My breakfast was fine but unremarkable.

We stopped at the Squeeze-In for breakfast after spending the night at one of the hotels across the street. The food was really good once we got it. The restaurant was really busy and the wait staff was overwhelmed. They apologized profusely for the inconvenience.

We go through John Day one or twice a year and always eat at the Squeeze Inn. The food is not exotic, but it's always good and the service is always friendly - the staff make you feel like you're a valued local rather than a transient tourist.

This cafe simply has very good food, with ample portions, at a very reasonable price. Along with the food you receive excellent service.

If you're hungry for a great American breakfast--this is a great place to find it. Basic in decor, the dining room is spacious with ample space between tables. The wait staff was very nice and attentive--even helping us with directions. We had corned beef hash with eggs, pancakes, etc. All was tasty and well prepared. Good value too. I'd go... More

Diane was our waitress and she was so friendly and helpful. We weren't sure at first when we walked in but we had a dog and 3 hungry kids so we went for it. We sat outside on the patio and she made sure we had everything we needed. Drinks always filled, orders taken quickly and even the dog had... More

For lunch a BLT sandwich was fine. Santa Fe salad was disappointing. For breakfast food was stand fare with good eggs and bacon. Basic food, basic service with nice people.
