This place is a local favorite, and for good reason! The food is always good and I love the 50's Diner theme (including the music). The service is always prompt, friendly and efficient. Also, if you're a Coca-Cola lover (like me), this is one of the few Turlock restaurants that actually serves Coke products (instead of Pepsi). This is a huge plus in my humble opinion. ? The menu prices seem reasonable. My only complaint... I wish that they stayed open for dinner, instead full review

Came here during the holiday, wait time was 30-40 mins around 10:30. Got called in pretty quick, but the waitress was also very rushed with our drinks, food order. (Almost as if we were bugging). Definitely not a relaxing place to enjoy breakfast. It's loud, the waitresses are rushed, restaurant packed to capacity. I got the impalas 65 omelette. It was good. Just good. The biscuits and gravy were bland, the biscuit was good and buttery. The food was not hot, more like Luke warm? full review
