I have to admit that I have avoided going to this restaurant for years because the outside appearance didn't recommend it. I was pleasantly surprised. They have a lot of variety on the menu and serve breakfast all day. Good basic diner food. I'm so tired of overpriced foo foo food with ingredients that most of us wouldn't want to... More

We often meet our son and daughter in law here for breakfast because there is such a large choice of things to eat plus parking is close by.

We go here for that week-day dinner when you don';t want to break the bank. Anna is wonderful. Always treats you like family. I recommend that you try this restaurant soon.

We stop here every time we visit this area. Spouse has to have the linguisa omelette, it's his favorite. Food is good, price is reasonable and service is good.

We've been visiting this restaurant for years. The service can be a little off putting sometimes but the food is consistently good. Our favorite meals here are breakfast, but we also enjoy dinner here on occasion. I don't recommend the rib-eye steaks, they're too thin. The portions are large. Most items are made from scratch. The relaxing casual atmosphere along... More

Great tasting food with large portions! Friendly staff. Needs cosmetic overhaul and bathroom clean-up. Convenient to hotel.

I used to love this place, great salsa, but this time when the waitress brought my hot breakfast there was a silver fish running on the plate. Pretty disgusting. Unbelievable I asked if they were going to discount the plate and the employees said well you ordered a replacement. I did that not to draw attention to my mom who... More

The food is very good, but certainly could use a more delicate touch. And it is very expensive for what you get. The omelet was fine, but the potatoes looked a little sad. Toast was indifferent, but coffee was over $4.00 for an average cup!!!!

Traveling along the coast, the Aloha Inn next door recommended Francisco's when we inquired. I rarely write an unsatisfactory review, but this one is an exception. Two of us ordered the #3 French Toast Combo with scrambled eggs and sausage links ($9). The French Toast was very thin, and the eggs were wet and slimy. My Dad ordered the Country... More

There are three diner-type places in AG but this one is our favorite. The food is very good and the service is competent, friendly, and generally fast. What we really like about this place is the variety of interesting dishes on the menu. Not just your usual diner standards. Great for breakfast and lunch. Also of note is that this... More
