|It may not be very appealing on the outside, but...|
The Randolph is not a gourmet restaurant, but instead, serves appetizing, satisfying food in generous portions, at a moderate price.
Yesterday, three of us, Mamá Cuevas, Sra. Cuevas and I trekked to Randolph for a nice lunch.
I had hoped to find some special from the blackboard menu, but as it was just Monday, the section was slender. But, no problem. The multi-page printed menu has more than enough to choose something that will please almost any customer. (Except maybe YELP! member-reviewers, who seem to have a higher than average percentage of whiners and nitpickers.)

I think I have written about these great onion rings in "Lord of the Rings".
We drank iced tea, which was good and strong. When we left the bar area where we'd been seated, I saw on a blackboard that draft beers were $1.00 off on Mondays. Perhaps that was a lost opportunity, but a vigorous shopping visit to Costco still awaited us, and I needed all my mental acuity and remaining physical strength.
Ratings (based on several visits)
Price: (in U.S. dollars, one $= $10 per person)
$-$$ Our check was $50 before tip.
Ambience: Modern diner, comfortable seating, varies from room to room.
Restrooms, small but serviceable. Nifty hot air jet hand dryer!
Hint: The Lemon Meringue pie: avoid. I have no opinion on other desserts, and there's usually no room for any.
Coffee: very weak.
