I met friends here while I was in town. The service was prompt and friendly, and I especially appreciated the owner personally stopping to visit with us. Burgers were perfectly cooked and took two hands to eat. Priceless.

We stopped at the Old Town Grill for lunch. It was very tasty and the place was friendly. We had the round hot dog and butternut squash soup. Both were very good. This grill blends in very well with the atmosphere of Placerville.

I never tire of this place. Food is very good and the staff is a joy to watch as they prepare the food. There might be a long line at times, but I find it worth the wait.

We got there right when it opened and were greeted immediately by a very pleasant woman. She explained the specials of the day. We both ordered mushroom cheeseburgers; I had clam chowder and my friend had fries. You order at the counter, then seat yourself....More
