Food and service is very good here. Hubby and I had the classic burger combo, delish! My kids had the burger and some breakfast. Everything was tasty and oh so good. We will definitely come back when we're nearby.

Could it be the "food police" have gotten to this California icon? The closest to the original of my youth was the Big Boy(tm) hamburger. But, it didn't quite have the flavor of days gone by. The onion rings were almost there. As were the...More
