    We generally stop at a Mexican restaurant in Sierraville on our way back from the hot springs but they were closed for the holidays so continued on to Loyalton. Since it was the weekend before Christmas we weren't sure if we would have any luck but when we got within a block we knew they were open because they were lit up and lots of cars in the parking lot.
    There is a bar when you walk in the door and then the restaurant is just around the corner. Nothing fancy but they seemed to do a pretty good business. We noticed their special was prime rib that night starting at $23.95 depending on the size. I ordered the teriyaki burger with shoestring fries, my partner ordered a chicken dish and our friend ordered onion rings. It took a little while to get our food but it was worth the wait. It came out HOT. Clearly, my burger had just come off the grill. It was cooked slightly over medium rare and it was juicy and delicious. My fires were also served hot. I didn't try the chicken but I did try the onion rings. OMG!!! The were sooooooo good! I could easily bite through the onion without pulling it out of the batter which was also delicious. We all commented about how good the onion rings were and how hot everything was when it was served. We had 4 or 5 beers between us and shared a bread pudding for dessert. The bread pudding was made with croissants so it was much lighter than most bread puddings I've had. I think it needed a little sauce of some kind but it tasted good anyway. The bill came to about $60 for the 3 of us which seemed fair given the amount of food and drink we consumed. It was a wonderful meal with great service. Our server was pleasant and attentive. She seemed to know pretty much everyone in the restaurant which makes sense in a small town like Loyalton.
    It's definitely my new "go to" when in the area.

    We have one place to eat in town after seven. We don't wanna piss these guys off. But the Salas kid does a heck of a job running the kitchen. And the servers are sweeter than dessert! For the middle of cowtown, these people sure know what they are doing!
    Thanks guys!!!

    I stopped here for a late lunch today, only three tables occupied including mine.  I ordered a cheeseburger and asked to substitute a salad for the fries, which was an additional $2.00. The waitress took my order for a well done cheeseburger and a small salad with ranch dressing.  The burger arrived first, was cooked thoroughly and was very good.  The salad never showed up though.  20 minutes later I had to ask again for a salad with ranch.  This mistake could have been easily avoided if the waitress had actually written my order down instead of trying to memorize it. She also never came back by to ask how everything was after I had the chance to take a few bites.  The waitress decided to socialize with someone in the kitchen instead of tending the dining room.  I had much better service last time I was here, and it was a different waitress who was a much harder worker.

    Good to see the wide world learning about the Genius of Chef Travis Cone and his awesome team.

    Last night Fish Fridays in Loyalton had the team's best take yet on salmon, "Salmon Bruschetta on House-made Pasta," with the weekly best-anywhere clam chowder on the side, for a price that breaks the ratio-qualité-prix indicator anywhere, not just up and down the Pacific Slope of North America.

    I have looked.  Travis and his team do the salmonids, here at the top of the drainage of the Great River of California, better than I have found elsewhere, and I have spent a lifetime looking.

    Come'n'get-it now.  La Guide Michelin cherche les endroits comme ceux-ci.   Get here before them flatlander gastrotouristes do.
