I'm sorry to say that this establishment seems to have gone off the deep end (for the worse). My wife and I have been coming here since it first opened (around 1986/87?), and it has always been one of our favorite places. As we have added kids (up to 5 now) it has been more difficult to fit all of us in - there's really only one spot left that can accommodate us. We have often had to wait for 30mins or so to get seated, but have been willing to do it.
But on our last visit (on 9/27/2007) it was very obvious that things have changed. Gone were the familiar wait-staff faces (including the woman who had been there almost as long as we have been coming there), and the new staff was very rough around the edges (including the bad language mentioned in another review), making us distinctly uncomfortable. I think it is very obvious that it has changed ownership recently. Fortunately for us the food was ok this night, but I'm afraid that CBC (didn't it used to be called California Burger Kitchen?) is not in our short list of places to go anymore.
