  • Before, Oldtown had nothing to do, really, but now it's getting a lot better as there are more good businesses coming in. It has been more lively since the addition of Giorgio's at 201 Main, Gold Leaf...  more »
  • Cute theatres and older run down restaurants. But a nice place to get dinner and shop or see a movie if in the Salinas area. Cheap parking is near the Steinbeck Center.  more »
  • Well, it was a Sunday and everything was closed except for a few cafes and restaurants. Walking on Main Street is charming - so quaint and the buildings are full of history. Nice facades especially th...  more »

  • Decent little diner. The service was very slow and a little rude. The food was okay. To be fair, I only ordered a grilled cheese and fries and there are not many ways to mess that up. However, the other people in my party had nothing remarkable to say about the food. So, if you want typical "American" food for an okay price and aren't feeling picky, give it a try.
  • Awesome old school greasy spoon American eatery with some spicy items too! In Old Town Salinas, street parking only. Awesome basic eggs & pancakes breakfasts until 11AM. The lunch fare of burgers, sandwiches, homemade soups, and a great spicy-meaty chili...are all fantastic! 3 times better than Dennys could hope for. This place is old, but clean...LOL all original, a classic. I had turkey melt with ortega chili slices, perfect. The chili packs a bit of heat, and chucks of hamburger patty..MMM-mmm. My daughter had the Kelly melt, burger patty & cheese on Rye, perfect. The french fries were LIGHTLY dipped in batter, and fried to perfection! YES!!! Each day a different soup is made from scratch. I think the cook is original too LOL. Dudley's almost got 5 stars, but my salad was iceberg chopped in small quarter-sized bits, had no flavor. Salinas is the Salad bowl of the west coast, every salad served here should be a Slam Dunk! Rejected!!
  • Wow just amazing foood. The staff are friendly and attentive. Overall great place to eat and I would recommend people to go and eat. 🙂
  • Food was very good... We will come back.
  • Great Service and yummy food.
