My all-time favorite chain restaurant on the mainland is Claim Jumper (I soooo wish they'd open in Hawaii!). Their great menu selection, huge portions, reasonable prices, and friendly service are just a few of the reasons why I love Claim Jumper so much, so during our recent trip to Southern California, we made sure that a visit to Claim Jumper was on our itinerary!
We were in a party of 9, and the entire time, our server, Daniel, was awesome.
As soon as we were seated we were given Claim Jumper disposable adhesive place mats, which I thought was super cool (we didn't need to use our own!).
I ordered the Grilled Cobb Sandwich.
DS2 had the Kids Chicken Nuggets with Fries and Frozen Grapes.
As expected, the food was great (there was another family with us but I only took photos of our family's food), portions were huge, prices were reasonable, and the service was AWESOME.
Upon leaving, Daniel thanked us and he went on, saying something like "No, really, thank you, because with out you, there is no us."
Again, those may not have been his exact words, but it was something to that effect.
I have never heard anything like that from a restaurant's employee before! We all left feeling valued (and stuffed!).
Hope it's not too long before we have the chance to dine at Claim Jumper again!
