This roadside stop in Red Bluff is like an improved mom and pop style Denny’s. We stopped in mainly to try the pies, but we couldn’t resist trying some of the savory items too.
First, the marble rye patty melt:
This was nice, and I liked the idea of it, but after coming off of the perfect patty melt at Pinecrest Diner in SF, we were underwhelmed.
Philly Style Prime Rib Dip
This was okay. Nothing to go nuts over, and a bit light on the meat. The fries and tots were good though.
Now on to the pies.
The butterscotch pie was probably the most well liked at the table. Really great texture and flavor.
I wanted more from the s’mores crunch pie, but ultimately I would house these, slice after slice, with ease.
The strawberry and rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream was perfection. I usually don’t love fruit pies but this one was fucking fantastic.
Definitely stop here if you’re driving by. Stick with the pies!
