Very authentic place with probably typical American food. I loved the traditional atmosphere as well as the great service. The staff was more then friendly and helpful. When coming back to Ridgecrest, I will have dinner there again. Thanks sweethearts!

Excellent Service! They were quick, friendly and attentive. I would recommend their Omelettes, specially the Denver Omelettes.

I had the best quesadilla of my life, and I've eaten a lot of them. The tortilla had chiles, onion and tomato inside with the cheese and huge cups of guacamole, sour cream, and great salsa on the side. My husband had a good patty melt & potato salad. The next morning we stopped in for a massive cinnamon roll... More

We were on the 395 around noon looking for a restaurant that allowed dogs. Kristy's is the place. They have an enclosed covered patio with a swamp cooler. It was over 105 degrees outside but the patio was a very pleasant temperature. We sat by the door to the dining room and it would periodically swing open allowing a rush... More

This is a nice, homey place with good diner-style food. I had a steak for my birthday dinner. The steak was a third fat and gristle, but the flavor was great--of course. My partner had meatloaf and said it was really good. Proportions were good as well. Overall, not a bad place to eat and it does beat Denny's

We came here under recommendation from the concierge at our hotel across the street. It might seem a little rough from the outside, I honestly might drive by without noticing it, but it turned out to serve a very nice meal for my entire family. It has classic american diner food and it was just what we were craving.
