Willows Black Bear Diner

What’s not to love about the Black Bear Diner in Willows? Not only do we have the tastiest food around, our staff is a professional group of men and women who take great pride in their jobs. If you’re looking for the perfect place to spend time with family and friends while enjoying a home-cooked meal, then look no further — you’ve found exactly what you’ve been searching for.

The quantity of the meals offered seemed to be adequate but, the quality of the food did not appear to be anything special. The complementary breakfasts at the hotels in Willows seem to offer a better food presentation then Black Bear Diner. The staff seemed kind and helpful only up to a customer's order and after the bill was given. The service in-between appeared to be much better at the McDonald's nearby.

I couldn't be more thrilled to find this Starbucks on a recent two-night stay in Willows. A group of friends were next door at the Best Western, and it was great that this Starbucks opened early before we set out to visit the local wildlife refuges. Now that I know about this Starbucks, I'll make it a stop when I travel Interstate 5.

Casa Ramos

Reviewed By Rogerdob - La Canada, California

This restaurant, which apparently is part of a large chain in Northern California, is a great looking restaurant, inside and out. The dining area is inviting, large, and open...no cramped booths or tables...a really great design. However, we were disappointed in the quality of the food...it wasn't awful or bad, it was just ordinary and average...we really wanted the food to match the look and feel of the restaurant. The "Cadillac" margarita wasn't really a Cadillac...after it came to my table it didn't taste like one...I inquired about it with the waiter and I said I couldn't taste the Grand Marnier in it. He said it was because they use imitation Grand Marnier and not the real stuff...I should have returned it but I didn't want to ruin our dinner with a fuss!

Nancy's Airport Cafe

Reviewed By RonandJoan - Renton, Washington

Based on reading TripAdvisor reviews, we visited Nancys cafe and it was wonderful. We sat by the front windows and had the meatloaf dinners. Staff was so friendly and the food came quickly. We saw a crop duster plane sitting outside the hanger right in front of us. It was so fun coming here.

La Cascada Restaurant

Reviewed By Sylvia B

Our family of four was totally satisfied here! We only ordered three mains and we had too much food. Their green sauce is awesome. The meat portions were generous, well-flavoured and tender.

We were staying across the street and not in a rush, so we enjoyed the pace of service. Also comes with tortilla chips to start AND a dessert version at the end.

Yum!

Second time we have had dinner here. What the place is lacking in decor is well surpassed by the tasty and hot food it serves. Love the main server.

Never been to this restaurant, even though I live just down the street from here, heard from numerous people that there is good food there, they weren’t kidding, loved the burrito and tacos I ordered, way better then the local taco truck in town... I highly recommend, plus the lady there was very nice...

The employees here are friendly and polite. The service is a little slow compared to Burger Kings with a greater traffic flow, but nothing too horrendous.
