Hard to mess up a breakfast. we visited here in early september, and invited an old friend from back home to eat and catch up. It was a very laid back establishment. Menus in newspaper style, just plain newsprint with offerings and silly articles. Good...More

Come here if you are looking for decent food and large portions. The service is a little erratic. I found the food to be alright and had a food taste. This is your typical corporate chain location and is consistent with the brand

I guess this is a chain of some sort out on the West Coast, but this was our first time. Some things that stood out: 1) huge portions. 2) They had tri-tip on the menu, which is my favorite beef cut, but which is hard...More
