“GREAT Place.”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

I just love this place. Casual, with great, great breakfasts and burgers. Highly recommended, but get there early on the weekends if you want breakfast, as it gets busy.

“Finally Made It”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

After returning from vacation we finally made it here. I say finally because on weekends my husband doesn't wake up early enough to beat the rush. Sadly, I don't like to wait, so this may be a place we go few and far between. it is very popular and crowded on the weekends. They are open for breakfast and lunch only. So, with us both being off on a weekday, we made it for a late lunch! The food was great! My husband had breakfast (served all day) and I had the California turkey sandwich. The amount of food was tremendous. We had so much more food, but the price was comparable with Panera or the likes. Wish it wasn't so popular, but I guess the good places are always busy. It was warm inside, and definitely smelled like cooking food, more like grease from burgers. The warmth and grease smell brought the atmosphere down a little, and I can't imagine going here on a weekend when it's busy. It would be very cramped, I can only imagine!

“Good food,service and company.”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

The food is good. The service is excllant. It feels like grandmas ktchen. Mike, the owner is always there cooking but still has time to say ha to his customers. Best breakfast in town. Best hamburger and the best clam chowder on Fridays.

“Great Breakfast, lunch”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

If you leave Ave. Grill hungry, you are crazy. Mike and staff cook everything right in front of you. You get your food fresh and hot, right off the grill. I swear if you order one egg, you get 2, order 2 your get 3. Mike does not know what small is. good place, good people good food.

“Best Grill in Lodi”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

They serve great fish and chips, hamburgers, and salads. The waitresses are very friendly, and the food is always good. There breakfasts can't be beat. You get a lot to eat and reasonable priced. Sunday mornings are very busy, so get there early.
