In 1901, a restaurant called the Star opened on Sixth Street across from the Southern Pacific tracks. The Star Restaurant was still doing business at the same location in 2008. That’s according to Wikipedia
I doubt that it’s under the same ownership but it’s a great little place to eat and has an old timey look about the place with a counter that looks like it’s been there forever. I had their double cheeseburger and it had two huge handformed patties that were terrific. It’s a burger that requires extra napkins to catch the juice. The next time I go there I’m going to prepare ahead of time by doing mouth stretching exercises so I can effectively wrap my jaw around the sandwich
It’s a bargain besides. Two of us ate until we could barely walk and the total tag was 12.75. Not many places you can eat food that good for that kind of money.
It’s open Monday thru Friday from 6:00 AM til 2:30 PM
