Service excellent and attentive. Portions are outrageous. We could of split one plate with four people. Enjoyed my breakfast for three meals. Pay the $1 and split your breakfast. Comfortable atmosphere and worth the visit.

Average food and service; not anything to "write home about". Had heard so much about what a great place with awesome food but from when I ate there about 5 years ago it has gone down hill considerably.

Googled to see what would be the best place for breakfast on our trip from Tehachapi heading northbound. Have to say this was definitely worth the stop.... EXCELLENT food!

My chili is the most requested dish by my millennial kids and their friends. Cope's chili is better than mine! Packs a heat that keeps me scooping another spoonful in my mouth!

Had lunch; open face turkey with mashed potatoes. They serve real sliced turkey breast and real mashed potatoes. Huge portions and great food. I'd definitely come back for lunch or breakfast next time I'm in town. Salads looked good as well.
