OK I admit...I'm old school when it comes to restaurants. Yeah, I live in Santa Barbara these days but all the foo foo restaurants here don't really appeal to me. Give me a good old fashioned Steakhouse meal with all the trimmings and I'm satisfied. They throw steak, shrimp and chicken at you all on the same plate and, for just a bit more, the all you can eat salad bar and the price is still very reasonable. Staff is friendly and the food is predictably good. Not great mind you, but pretty darn good for the money. I still like to eat there when I'm in the Northridge area.
Pros: No tipping, fast service, good food
Cons: noisy at lunch time.
