I have lived in Los Banos most of my life. Wool Growers is a staple. People come from all over the Valley for the food. My husband and I order the Soup, Salad, Stew -- we are always full by that time. But if you want more the special main dishes are always good. Nothing is formal or even modern.... More

Been here twice - The first time I was taken by a local; the second time I brought my wife. It's a cultural experience. Wonderful. Food snobs might not be impressed but I love it. Bring an appetite!

We were startled by the food: soup, lettuce with strange dressing, baked beans, potato salad, then lamb stew, followed by our choice of lamb chops which came with French fries. Way, way too much food! The dining room is like a mess hall. The service was average at best. The complementary red wine is a nice touch -- but chilled?!... More

This is the kind of place that would stand out in almost any location. The complete lack of atmosphere, the very straight-to-the-point wait staff, the picnic tables with plastic tablecloths...it all adds up to a not-to-be-missed experience. For our entrees, I had the lamb chops and my husband had the trip-tip. The lamb was delicious, but the tri-tip was honestly... More

My husband, and I hadn't been out for a while, and this used to be our favorite local restaurant. I wish it was as good as it once was.
