Growing up in Turlock, my family and I use to go to The Fruit Yard at least once a month. I would have to say my palate wasn't very refined at that age and I didn't truly appreciate the taste of prime rib but remembering it at my current standpoint I would have to say it was the best prime rib I've ever had. My father (former GM of Lotte Hotels in Korea) still talks about this place that we use to go almost 10 years ago.
I'm even considering going back up north for a weekend trip and visiting this place, if you're ever in the Stanislaus area and have meat on your mind, make sure to try it out, I promise you won't be dissapointed.
As for the people that have gone recently... is it still as good as I remember it?
