If you are adventurous you can shut your eyes, point at something on the menu and be happy ordering at Queenie's. I had the huevos rancheros, reuben and other various menu items as a group of four of us grazed off each other's plates. We even got a visit from Queenie and she greeted us with some great quips.

Stopped here while driving from Ft. Bragg to Bodega Bay, the breakfast was incredible. We were amazed earlier when we tried to find a place to eat in Mendocino, it's like they've outlawed restaurants in that town! It turned out to be a blessing in disguise because we found Queenie's a few miles down the road. If you have the opportunity, check it out, excellent food and friendly hometown service.

Queenie has had this location for several years, and was very popular in the restaurants she worked in before she opened her own place. If you like diner food, you'll love Queenie's. Sometimes you just have to have some old fashioned comfort food that is well prepared. It's a bit of a drive for me, but the view is spectacular.

Stumbled across Queenie's while driving from San Fransisco to Mendocino, and what an absolute gem!
Great atmosphere, wonderful service, a burger worth travelling miles for, and we were even directed to the impossible-to-find restrooms by Eddie, the 86 year old local who was lunching there. If that's not an endorsement, I don't know what is.
This is the kind of place you dream about finding, so plan a stop here on your coastal drive, but keep in mind that it closes early - 3 o'clock each day.

Their breakfasts are famous, but wild rice on waffles? Queenies uses organic produce and local sources of nearly everything on the menu. They're not open year-round, so check their schedule. They fill up fast in the morning, but the wait is worth it.
