This particular diner is next to a Tesla charging station and I often eat here as the car charges. It's classic diner food and I've found that both service and food quality varies as to whom is working at the time. This visit i ordered links and eggs with well done hash browns and links. The plate sat up on... More

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch, but that would be it! The dinner menu is coffee shop quality food. Barbecue chicken dinner was a small chicken breast overcooked, with some bottled barbecue sauce smothered over it. The vegetables tasted like they were cooked hours before and warmed up. Salads are iceberg lettuce that are probably poured out... More

Fun, cheerful restaurant. Menu was the usual, food was well cooked, hot and promptly served. Servers were fun to work with. Price reasonable, we've come back to the chain a couple of times since.

I have used the BB diner in Shasta, Grants Pass and Madras. This is a chain with average food and service, but convenient locations. The benefit is its a sit-down diner and you know what you are getting in a varied selection of American food.

I enjoyed these burger diner salad. It is like a chess burger but without the bun on a plate full of salad.. It was very... More

Five people -- 5 different meals. The place was full and the staff was naturally a little slow in getting to us and delivery was slower than ideal. BUT HEY -- A great testament to the popularity of the establishment. We had time to relax and chat while the kitchen and wait staff ran around trying to satisfy everybody. All... More

Love the food and a very good choice of items. Great quality food. Very good service and the place is packed today. The bacon is fantastic along with the ham.
