Overpriced – Food quality was very average for the price. Go across the street to the Claim Jumper for a much better meal.
Down-home, Midwest-style cooking and a straightforward menu to please the whole family. – In Short
Marie Callender's began in the 1940s in Orange County, Calif., as a bakery that specialized in pies. Now, pie is only a slice of this nationwide franchise's offerings. Family-style comfort foods like pot roast, pot pie, tuna melt and country-fried steak as well as pasta, burgers, salads and sandwiches dominate the menu. But, the big draw is still pie: More than 31 freshly-baked varieties are available daily. Whole pies also can be purchased to go.
Surprisingly good – Went here because it was close by - my only experience with this "brand" has been in frozen foods. Expected a "Denny's" type place but got a llittle better than that. Had a good breakfast starting with a delicious apple cinnamon muffin that could only be eaten with a fork, very moist and served warm, right from the oven. Then the meatloaf, eggs and hashbrowns, the hashbrowns were too crispy but the eggs were good, as was the meatloaf - two nice slices in a rich brown gravy. Hot tea topped it off, and total was $14 including tip. As the governator says "'ll be back!"
