I haven't been in there in years, maybe it time to give it a try again. Years ago the only thing that kept that place alive was the tour bus traffic.

it has had so many different owners thru the years, the current college boy type owners are cutting corners, the nostalgia (sp?) is long gone. The waitress staff is very attentive and make you feel really welcome, but don't put the place on your must do list.

Same owners for years, but the guy that is manager is worthless. He could not manage himself out of awet paper bag. Never helps, hides when it is busy, does not know how to handle a staff. The waitresses are the only thing that keeps us going back. Otherwise it is old and outdated and owners don't do anything about fixing it. Staff is fed up and if they leave we won't be back.

I remember it as being old and outdated inside and seemed like maybe one small step above a Dennys type atmosphere.

The old Denny's had good hangover food but the place was nasty inside, the new Denny's is nice inside but their food blows. I have always had just okay food at Black Oak, but I could think of about ten other places I would rather eat at than Black Oak, I don't mind driving a bit to have a good meal, I kinda like Tomat's in Winters. Vacaville is lacking in good places to eat.

I'v been by Tomat's many times but I never ate there. As a rule I only go out to eat for lunch and they're not open for lunch. Vacaville is lacking the demographic to support a good place to eat.
