Too expensive for the quality of food you get. Kids left hungry because the portions of their food was very small. Staff was nice.

I liked the milkshakes here, and the fries were good! Everything I got tended to be greasy, but DID have some flavor to it! You can build your own burger, and the soup/salad bar was good!

I wouldn't make a trip for this one! It takes a long time to get the food, and it's nothing special when you get it. I'm really annoyed that they charged $0.50 for two glasses of tap water.

Ordered cheese burger and BBQ. They accidentally charged for cheese they took that off. When the food came, the buns were smashed my burger was a bit burnt and the tomato on it was the end close to the stem. So that's what I had the stem. Yuk!!! Last year when we were here it was fantastic, don't know what... More

I ordered the Chicken special dinner for $8.39. Fried chicken, mashed pots and green beans. I asked for butter for the pots & beans. "We don't have any." Needless to say I was surprised. Chicken was really pretty good, pots average and beans from a can. Basic meal...NOT special...NO butter ???

We stopped by San Dee's for dessert. Although they were closing in 10 minutes, the staff took our order and were very curtious. Good dessert and a friendly environment.

I at lunch here with my grandsons. They are hard to feed due to their quirkiness about food. This is not a fancy place but the food was good. It is definitely better than most fast food restaurants you may choose to dine at. We ordered grilled chicken sandwich, grilled cheese, and a Philly cheesesteak. All of the sandwiches were... More

Service was slow, food was bland. Everything was priced about 30% more than it rightfully should be, probably won't be giving this place a second chance.

San Dee's is one of those restaurants you like to find in out of the way places. Good food and good service. We ordered their Cheeseburgers with fries and salad bar. The burgers were great, great salad bar but the fries were skimpy. They offer a good selection of cheese for the burgers. Many other items (subs, pizza, sandwiches, etc.)... More
