This place is so convenient - we have been stopping here for many years. It is a great place to grab a bite when you want convenient, fast food with friendly service.

Just stopped in on our way up to northern cal! Our waitress was great, very friendly and attentive. Wish I had her name to post but she has curly hair in a top bun. Good food, not super special but good and would recommend it!

If you're looking for a quality Subway experience this is not it. If you're looking for good food friendly people and a nice setting this is it. One of the few places left you can get something really good to eat for a great price. Lots of parking for both big trucks and cars, easy on and off the interstate,... More

I first ate here as a teenager (mid 1970's) riding desert bikes out on El Marge dry lake. and have been back many, many times. The Old Outpost has never delivered to me a bad meal. Always fun and a walk down memory lane. My wife and I were married at The Outpost wedding chapel (1979).

This is a great little truck stop diner. A must-stop if your passing by on the 15 and hungry, as it is easy on/easy off access, only a few minutes for one of the best fresh-cooked real meals you can buy. Omlettes always good, anything from the grill, and something everyone will like. Good food, great price.

It's very seldom I can't finish a meal. The servings here are so large my wife and I could have shared her Chicken Fried Steak dinner. I had the Cobb Salad with Chicken and we both left enough food for a second meal, and it was GOOD.

The sign on the highway brought us in, but the food and service we received will make us repeat customers. Yes, they are located in a truck stop plaza and it's nothing fancy to look at, but what we experienced was a good ole American style diner with homemade food. Hubs had chicken fried steak with garlic mashed potatoes, gravy,... More

This is an excellent little restaurant, the food, service, and atmosphere are fantastic. They have their grill flavored perfectly for steaks...the flavor that you get from every bite just makes you want more. I can't say how great this place is...you just have to try it yourself.

Honey pointed to a Wendy's I didn't even give it a second thought when I saw the A rating on this big little café. We were greeted by Lori with a lot of smiles, chit chat and a real homey feeling as we looked over our choices. Honey had a grilled chicken salad I had double hotdogs with EVERYTHING. It... More
