The No Whiner Diner: "Great Home Cooking" Top 5 Page for this destination Carlsbad Restaurant Tip by Basaic
Carlsbad Restaurants: 7 reviews and 7 photos
This is a family owned place with a homey atmosphere; old photos on the walls including Marilyn Monroe, old coke and Dr. Pepper signs, etc. Many of the staff have a similar look so maybe they are family. My waitress was named Steph and she was cute with a great smile, friendly, efficient, and 8 months pregnant. She earned a big tip. The menu had a variety of American style food, and includes kids and senior menus. I opted for the Blackened Catfish with mixed vegetables and soup (Hot Mexican Chicken with Vegetables). Hours are Lunch 11 AM to 1:45 PM and Dinner 5 PM to 7:45 Monday through Thursday. They are open for dinner until 8 PM on Fridays. They are closed on Saturday and Sunday. Just under $10 as of March 2011.
Favorite Dish: Unlike some places, the Hot Mexican Chicken with Vegetables actually was hot. The Blackened Catfish catfish was very good. Portions were a little small but I ordered off the "Seniors" Menu; the normal meal has more food. Huge coke.
