a generous salad of local Lettuce and fresh herb dressing, local baked rolls,
your choice of the Old California Casserole, New California Casserole, or
Chicken Soufflé at $14.95. The Old California Casserole and the New California
Casserole both have a corn based embodied with cheese and beef sauce, the only
difference is that the Old California Casserole is made with sharp cheddar
cheese where as the New California Casserole has Monterey Jack cheese and
chopped green chilies. The Chicken Soufflé is heartier than its name, with
batter bread topping. Desserts, a la carte. We suggest that for $6.75 you order
