We Welcome the Whole Family

Look over the local newspaper while waiting. The kids can enjoy coloring or playing with “Mr. Potato Head” as we prepare your food. You can experience our unique Southern California weather in the sidewalk seating section, where you and your dog are very welcome!

Economic Value and Quality Food

Friends of The Shack (others call them customers), tell us that we offer a “meal and a half,” always some to take along if you wish. Bread, eggs, salsa, mushrooms and more, the freshest that are available.

Looking For Something Special?

Try our “manhole cover” sized pancakes. Our American and hand cut fries are “all you can eat.” Yes, they are the ones your friends told you about!

We’re open!

The Shack is back!
