Granite Rock Grill took Best of Best Catering and Breakfast awards for 2008, and it’s no wonder. They are well known for their homemade quality and down-home service. “Everything is made fresh every day. We make our own burger buns, cinnamon rolls, soups, sauces, gravies…you name it, we make it.” Their Folsom restaurant, which they have owned for 10 years, has been awarded the honors of Best Breakfast for five years in a row now. The restaurant, which features American food, mixed in with a little bit of Mexican cuisine, serves breakfast and lunch, daily until 2 p.m.

Chef Rich Gardner was nearly 25 years-old when he decided to run his own business. When he met his wife Kay, she already owned a restaurant and Gardner realized his dream in their union – he now manages the back of the house, while Kay takes care of the front. The Gardners are both very hands-on, and they make their customers feel like they’ve always known them.

Granite Rock Grill offers full-service catering, and buy all of their eggs, produce and dairy locally. The Grill is grateful to its customers and has decided not to raise prices even though costs of food have “gone through the roof.”
