I have visited this location 3 times in the past 3 years. They are always spot on with your order. Good food & great service keeps me coming back. I have only been in for breakfasts, but would eat there anytime!

I met a customer for breakfast and a bit of business. The waitress was very experienced and made the whole experience wonderful. The omelets were great and she kept our coffee and tea full all the time.

We went here after our granddaughter's volleyball game. I was looking forward to a good dinner with hubby, granddaughter and our son-in-law. Our granddaughter liked her omelette, our son-in-law had a really good tri tip sandwich, my burger was good, (but dry). Hubby ordered the meatloaf. Here's the rub..

While staying in one of the nearby hotels, we went searching for breakfast one morning and found Perko's Cafe nearby. If anyone has ever eaten at a Perkin's restaurant it seemed very similar. The decor is simple with mostly booths. The servers are friendly and call the locals by their first names (something I find charming). The food is served... More

A great place for this weary traveller to end the day with a good hot meal and very friendly staff. They have a good variety of options on the menu and serve breakfast all day.Prices were also very reasonable. Will stop in again if I ever I am in Modesto.

We were staying at a hotel nearby. the food was very good, quite inexpensive and the service excellent. Hilari, our waitress couldn't have been friendlier and what a smile. We would definitely eat here again if in the area.

I would eat here again. I was across the parking lot from the hotel so I ate here. Staff was nice. Food was good. This place has regulars and the staff will sit and talk with them during slow time. Nice place.

We live here in Salida and eat here all of the time. The food is consistently excellent and the staff is friendly and will make you feel like one of the family . . . Don't pass up the chance to eat here. Great selection at a reasonable price.
