Rating: Terrible, but pretty location
Like a set out of Sons of Anarchy ! This is barely a restaurant, but a total pub/roadhouse/biker bar with food. It’s apparently for sale too! The location is gorgeous in a Southern California Hills sort of way.
Italian Sausage and peppers with onion rings. The “sausage” was a desiccated and dry thing on an over toasted bun. The onion rings were lousy onion rings, but still half decent because how bad can onion rings get.
Great location, and on this perfect SoCal day the breeze was great — food was what you expect. Odd that so many people were drinking. The idea of driving a motorcycle through those hills after a couple whiskies is more than a little terrifying.
Service was slow, but extremely friendly. Food came out at a glacial serial pace. Clearly the “pizza oven” can only handle one at a time.
