There is not much choice for restaurants in Holbrook. We had read some rather good reviews and also the lady from the reception in our motel recommended it, so we decided to have dinner in Mesa Restaurante Italiana. During our visit - early in the evening - it was rather busy and we were happy to get a table.
Location: Mesa Italiana is located more or less in a kind of ‘no man’s land’, at least two miles from Holbrook and about 0,5 mile from our Super 8 motel.
Staff: friendly and helpful; good service.
Inside: a little bit disappointing, but appropriate for this area.
Food: classic Italian food; we had lasagne and spaghetti and both were good.
This was our first real American dinner and we enjoyed the basic setting. The food was (at least for us) extremely cheap, although a glass of wine was much more expensive. All together we just paid USD 37,50 (tip included).
An average Denny's or Perkin's-type family restaurant, I enjoyed the chicken fried steak. Unfortunately they had no beer. Service was OK, food was good... all in all an average experience.
