A couple of days ago my BFF, Lola, and I took a short trip to the gold country and ended up in San Andreas in time for lunch. We looked around for restaurants, preferring a small town diner to the usual pizza/Mexican/chinese offerings that seem to abound in the west, and that’s exactly what we got when we found Country Cliff’s. The restaurant doesn’t look like much, just a modest diner with formica tables and old pictures on the walls, but we liked the atmosphere and the food wasn’t too bad.
I had the New York steak sandwich with fries ($10, I think) and wasn’t extremely pleased with it. The steak was very thin and had quite a bit of gristle in it. It tasted fine, however, and I loved the mayo in the sandwich 🙂 The fries were coated and very, very good.
Lola had a small salad, which was mostly iceberg lettuce with some local tomatoes and onions. She said it tasted very fresh. Her burger was also fine, a bit gamier than most – but she confessed she mostly eats burgers at fast food joints. In all, she was fine with it.
I had a caramel milkshake with lunch ($3.50) and it was also just OK. It was a bit thin and didn’t taste much of caramel, but there was nothing really wrong with it.
Service was prompt and friendly – specially given that this is a 2-person operation and it was quite popular for lunch.
In all, the meal was fine – I might try another place or another town next time, however.
