Not only that the food is extraordinary, but the service even tops it. Feels like home from the first moment.

What else could you ask for. If I lived closer, I would be a regular customer. We had BBQ sandwiches that were very good. Tri tip was perfectly sliced. We really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere.

The place was packed, so we waited outside by a fountain for about 15 minutes, and it was worth the wait! It's your typical comfort American breakfast food, done to perfection!!

This was our third visit to Bonnie Lu's, but, in the past, we'd always been there for breakfast. This time, we were there for lunch. Hubby still ordered breakfast, because it's available all day and he loves breakfast. I decided to order a cheeseburger with grilled onions and mushrooms. It was delicious, made with quality meat and cooked to perfection.... More

Bonnie Lu's is a friendly place where everyone seems to know each other. The food is comfort food, well-prepared, and fresh. Yummy Monte Cristo sandwich and veggie/vegan options!

I was not expecting good down home cooked food in CA. I was glad to find Bonnie Lu's. The food was great. breakfast is served all day. It was like a little southern cafe. The atmosphere was charming. It takes you back tot he 1950's - sort of like Happy Days.

Get there before noon to enjoy the three piece band. The service was awesome, food was amazing. Not too long of a wait. About 30minutes for a busy Sunday. Well worth the wait.
