Very casual and order at the counter, then food is served to you in gold mining pans. Standard burgers, but always something interesting like elk burgers or stuffed burgers and so, so tasty. The staff was so friendly and helpful and food was very prompt.

Sandwiches, salads, specialties, all done by a world-class set of chefs (daughter Jenny is working along with Dad John and Mom Debbie). Their catering business is thriving and I've never had better catered cuisine.

Great lunch Burgers, even Emu, sometimes Buffalo, always grass-fed beef. Old-time grill atmosphere, or the back patio-type tables. Real hand-scooped ice cream milkshakes - yummy!

I visited when my cousin came from out of town. It was so busy as usual and John's staff kept checking in with us on when our meal would be done! Such great customer service and awesome food!

Looking for a great burger or creative hot dog! This is the place. Everything on the menu is worth the adventure! We love having a seat in the window and watching the folks wander Main Street ... especially if there's a parade going down. Try the Bleu Cheese Burger or the John Studebaker Wagon Wheel Dog.

Really old school burger place. Order it at the front counter and they deliver it to you in the back of the restaurant. Their garlic curly fries were something that i could not stop eating

Took a rest break in Placerville on our drive along US 50, and walking through Old Town we were grabbed by the aromas coming out of this place. The specials included a mushroom, avocado and Swiss cheese burger, and a Lamb-burger with grilled onions and feta. Everything is grass fed. My wife got the mushroom etc. burger, and I went... More

The chicken pesto sandwich was fantastic! Absolutely loved it. And the mint chip milkshake my friend had was great too. She couldn't stop talking about the fries either. Highly recommend. Terry Flattley
