Rating: Terrible, but pretty location
After doing some seasonal cherry picking we took a deserted California road and ended up at this biker bar.
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.
Lemon Slushy. Tasted like frozen Country Time.
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.
Hot dog. A picture is worth a 1000 words.
Tri tip sandwich. Barely qualifies for the label.
Cheese pizza. Straight outta the box and into the oven.
Pepperoni Pizza. Same.
BBQ Chicken Pizza. Did they actually have this as a boxed option or is it a modified cheese? Hard to tell.
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.
