Cute little American Diner with some Filipino flare on the menu. Found this place on the way to San Francisco airport. Easy to access right off interstate! Excellent Food!! We ate the chicken fingers and turkey melt with a side of crinkle fries. We didn't...More

Great place to come for breakfast or dinner if you're on a budget. The wait staff is always friendly and personable. Burgers are very reasonable. Very good for breakfast. Their fried potatoes could be better. I always go for the Ortega burger for lunch.

Nice place for breakfast.... very filling.... We have been here a few times when we are in the area.... It is reliable.. It's not four star dining, but worth it/ We would go back again... Food was hot, prices are fine... Ok for the kids.....

Don't order the French dip if you're planning to stay here all day and chew the meat. Good service, stick to the breakfast menu. Overall I would never go back to this restaurant

We always have a great breakfast here. The teriyaki steak is excellent. Other breakfast items are very generously portioned and the service is always consistently good.

The waitress is very hard working at breakfast and gets all the details right e.g. crispy bacon, biscuit not toast, onions o.k.? I was traveling on business but I could see everyone else were happy regulars of all walks of life. They have every choice...More
