This is the place if you want to have a fast lunch but don't want to eat fast food. The food was very good and the price was very affordable.

My husband and I have been here several times and each has been terrific. The food is always great and consistent. Also the service is always terrific. Their location is wonderful as it's in downtown Paso Robles, near the square and movie theater.

Little country diner - with a 50's vibe - great for locals and visitors alike. Biscuits and Gravy or Huevos Rancheros - it's all good. Homemade soups and pies.
