    They were super quick to take our order and to bring us our food. The pancakes were some of the best I've ever had.

    Wow.. Stopped in after a flight to SAN heading to LA. Saw it was an old Sambo which I loved as a kid. Was blown away by service, speed and quality of food. Was the best meal of our CA trip!

    20 years ago the Chicken-Fried Steak was big and oh!-so-Yummy. Don't dare do it now. Go for a Frittata. This place specializes in them and has a wealth of variety.73, I'm KM6AW

    Open 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Regulars know to sit at any empty seat at the counter when it is crowded. You don't have to sign in for that.

    Looks divey and worn, but the food is good. Nothing fancy, just good, hearty meals. And you can't beat the prices!

    Get the blueberry muffin with you meal. Combine that with the hot whipped butter and its like eating a piece of warm blueberry cake

    Eggs, sausage, blueberry muffins are huge and the hash browns are amazing!
  • Andria C.
    Burgers greasy and undercooked, turkey melt fab. Menu is huge. Most are $6-$11. Bfast looked a bit cheaper. Super fast service. Coffee ok.

    Big everything. The only things I have found not really really good are their gravy and their chili.

    One spoon of sugar in coffee. Keep it simple. Biscuits and gravy are bland. Homestyle over hash potatoes. I get the two egg breakfast scrambled hard. Not a fan of italian sausage.

    My favorite is the combo frittata. Yuuum. Seriously, the best things on the menu are the frittatas.
  • Abdullah O.
    The services is not at par with their reputaion. The menu doesn't specify the content of meals which lead us to reject 2 dishes contianing pork. Worse they insisted we pay even they were not touched.

    Huge portions, choose something salty like fritata and hashbrowns. Sweet muffin and pankes with salty butter - disgusting.
