Small and simply decorated, the El Grullense restaurant serves up tasty portions of authentic Mexican fare to weary travelers. Diners can stop by and take a break from their journey, just a few minutes off the Interstate 5. The personable owner is usually around to chat with guests and prepare tasty home style meals for hungry travelers. Both booth seating and counter service are available, a good option for a quick bite or a more leisurely meal. On the menu you'll find options like the chile verde, soft tacos with beef, carne asada, carnitas and both, sodas and beer to accompany them. Prepared quite authentically and full of Latin spice, you may want to request them to reduce spice levels to your preference. A convenient stop on the way up the Grapevine.
Ranch House has a quaintly old fashioned air about it, with its log cabin meets modern decor and actual fireplace. The menu is similarly styled, focusing on serving up heaped portions of classic American fare like country fried steak, corn beef hash, bacon cheeseburger, steak and eggs, onion skillet and stuffed french toast. Simple, homely and delicious; the food is not fancy, but as the only non fast food option in town, it offers a pleasant break from the regular burger, fries and burritos combo. The staff are friendly and quite willing to try and accommodate dietary preferences or requirements as well. Kids will enjoy their old-fashioned ice cream soda floats as a special treat. For any additional information, contact the restaurant.
