I've gone here for breakfast before and it was all really good food, and the service was nice as well. Recently I went with a friend for dinner here, as I found out they have a 10 dollar dinner deal, which was worth every penny!

We had an excellent broasted chicken dinner for two last night which cost under $13.00 with the purchase of two drinks. The meal included soup, salad, bread four pieces of chicken and potato or mixed vegetables. All the dishes were simply cooked and simply delicious, and one cannot beat the price! The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable as one would... More

If you like chicken or fish, sandwiches and full meals at an affordable prce, along with a friendly, comfortable downhome atmosphere to boot, check this place out. It has been in Chico for decades. It is clean, quiet, and relaxing, but they also do takeout if you want to eat at home or elsewhere. They are very accommodating to the... More

Lots of locals, good parking, clean bathrooms, friendly service. I had not planned on desert but the bread pudding called me. These puddings are so different place to place and this was a good one like my Mother made

On recommendation of a young man at the hotel we tried this for dinner. It was much better than a dennys or a Black Near Diner.our dinners were both very good. We like it so much we went the next day as we were leaving town to have Sunday Breakfast. The breakfast was just as good.

If Mom made , they have it. The prices are very resonable and the food is great. It can get crowded so drive by first if you don`t like large crowds. Even when crowded the seating is fast and the noise level is very muted.

I'm giving this review an average to be positive. Personally, I was not impressed with the food or the service. It did appear that they would be a good take-out place as the pricing and quantities looked like a very good value. The restaurant appeared to be well occupied with diners who appeared to be happy. Perhaps my expectations are... More
