They open at 7 am and serve a variety of high calorie breakfast options. The breakfast meats and taters were prepared in the old time diner tradition.

The service was rather slow and the food pretty average. I wouldn't rush back. The guy in front of me waiting to pay obviously felt the same way based on his attitude to the cashier. I didn't see any tips being left!

On our way home, we were hungry and stopped in for breakfast. Walls are covered with western pictures of movie stars and other memorabilia. I had the corned beef hash with country pots and biscuit. Country potatoes had green peppers, onions and mushrooms. The potatoes were sliced longwise. They were good. The biscuit was a little to dense. Would have... More

The restaurant walls are covered in western memorabilia. We had breakfast here which are large portions but lacked some condiments. The omelett ($11) was served very bland and tasteless.

We arrived in Lone Pine about 2.30pm today and we were starving. There is a huge range of burgers and they allow you to chose from a range of patties from vegetarian to buffalo, ostrich and elk or just regular beef. You get a choice of sides to have with your burger (onion rings, fries, soup, salad or cottage cheese).... More

I stopped here for an early dinner. I was in the mood for a chicken fried steak, so that's what I had. It came with a fresh salad, mashed potatoes and vegetable. For the vegetable, I was given a choice of sliced tomatoes or deep fried corn on the cob. I chose the corn on the cob. It was good,... More

We returned to Lone Pine for the festival this year and as usual stopped here for lunch. It's been a couple of years and the menu seems to have grown to include more items. We ordered the chicken fried steak and a chicken fried chicken. Both orders were served with very tasty potatoes and gravy, comfort food. We have always... More
