We loved Togo's when we lived down south, so we were happy to see one open in Jackson. Already very popular. Loved the pastrami and my wife had the half salad and sandwich. The quality is the same as the other stores we have been to, but the layout is better. Definitely will go back.

Perkos' Cafe

Reviewed By J R W

We have eaten in other Perkos', but this was the first time at this location in Jackson. It was a delightful stop with great service. I had a tuna melt supreme. It was the first time I ever had a tuna melt with tomatoes and avocados and it was very tasty that way. My wife enjoyed her French dip. When we were seated the young lady told us she was seating us at a window seat so we could enjoy the great view "of the traffic outside and the weeds in the garden". This started the evening off with a good laugh. The restrooms were clean and all of the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. The only thing that they could improve would be their French fries that were a little soggy and the coffee that was sort of on the weak side. Still and all we'll stop there again.

Imperial Hotel & Restaurant

Dating from 1879, the historic Imperial Hotel in Amador City offers casual elegance in indoor and patio dining to visitors and local residents alike. This family-owned and operated establishment takes pride in featuring organic, locally grown produce, fre

Reviewed By KenVicLee

By our best estimates this year was the 14th year we have returned to the Imperial Hotel. It all started when our daughter enrolled at the University of the Pacific in Stockton and we decided we preferred to stay in Amador County wine country rather than Stockton while visiting her.That daughter, her younger sister, their significant others and some of their friends, plus a few of our friends, managed to occupy all 9 of the rooms including the three large suites across the street. Most years we can only fill the six rooms in the hotel but our annual trek each spring has become so popular that we outdid ourselves this year. Of course I am biased. I love old hotels. The creaky floor boards are music to my ears. Sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine overlooking Route 49, listening to the chirping frogs, hearing the cries of the hawks in the sky, the occasional warbling of wild turkeys are all so peaceful. Some people want to fall asleep to waves crashing on the beach. I will take gurgling creeks and frogs any day. Over the years I have concluded that this hotel is not for everyone. There is no elevator. There is no phone. There is no TV. But there is hot coffee in the hallway every morning at 7:00 am and a hot breakfast served each day like a B&B. Frankly I just as soon keep this place to myself. It is a great launching off point for visiting the local wineries and for getting to Sutter Creek and to Plymouth for its variety of restaurants.As this area increases in popularity I am sure new hotels and B&B's will open. Regardless of that "progress", we will be here. There is a reason why every year we come back.

Rosebud's Cafe

Reviewed By rvhfl

We stopped in for a late lunch, and we so impressed by the quality and tastiness of the food that we bypassed our hotel's breakfast just so we could eat there again before leaving Jackson. The menu was creative with fresh farm to table ingredients used throughout. Fresh is my new favorite flavor! All the servers were friendly and happy to answer touristy questions. And, if you know how to play the piano, a few minutes of fame awaits you!Thank you, rvhfl. We have as good a time serving you as you do dining with us! Please remember we are here and come again. Our Brunch menu changes often. If you are interested in learning more about our farm, the next Farm Dinner is August 10. We have limited seating and by reservation only. Call for details, 209.257.0227. Again, thank you for the stellar review.

The staff of Sina's has way too much fun, IMHO. We just made it in one afternoon in time to have lunch before closing (which is at 2pm). Yummy sandwiches and chuckles with the staff. We would always eat here when we are in the area.

Hotel Sutter

Reviewed By u2fan56

My wife and I went to dinner at Hotel Sutter restaurant recently while on vacation in area. We decided to stay in town instead of traveling and settled on this restaurant. It is very large restaurant and they sat us by window. They turned off the misters for us since it was not too hot when we went. Menu is selection of appetizers, salads, burgers and entrees. I had the chicken marsala and it was very good. My wife had veggie selection which was also very good. Great service - very attentive and friendly. They let us bring our own wine for small corkage. Solid choice with great service.

Buffalo Chips

All American Cafe. Servicing breakfast, lunch and Friday Burger Bash. Come and taste the various flavors of ice cream and have a slice of home made pie.

Reviewed By mikehikes42

So we were out looking for food on a rainy Christmas Eve. It was lunch... so there were a few things open. Buffalo Chips makes what may be the best cheese sandwich I have ever eaten in my life. I am old, there have been lots of cheese sandwiches. From this point forward I’ll humbly proclaim that all cheese sandwiches should be made on challah bread. The chips and salad on the side were also awesome. The staff was friendly. The decor was cute. Stop in if you can. Share the sandwich... unless you are starving it was a lot.

Cavana’s Pub & Grub

Reviewed By john b

Had a turkey sandwich with fries for lunch. Fries were battered and great, sandwich was also great with bacon, sprouts, and avocado. Warning, you might consider splitting this as it was too much for me to handle, a good problem. Soups were also good, service lacking, slow.

Met my friend for breakfast. Took a long time for wait person to take our orders. Ordered the "Farmer" breakfast which was a spinach frittata, sausage and potatoes. Waited for another very long time - had to ask twice where food was. When finally served, I took one bite of everything and wouldn't/couldn't eat any more because all was overcooked and dry. The sausage was almost burnt. My friend had the same experience. When we brought this up, they gave us a whopping 10% off. Really? When I also mentioned to hostess as we were leaving, she said they received a sub batch of meat from their distributor and then she shrugged. Again, really? No apologies, no nothing. Why would they even serve it if it was substandard? And they were expensive. Not going back there.
