Missy Carver Boulton has done it again. She and her husband Tracy are once again gearing up to nourish local foodies with their famous good ‘ole country cooking.
Missy’s Place 15th Hole Bar and Grill, located within the gates of the Rancho California RV Resort in Aguanga, will have a grand re-opening planned for mid-February.
The restaurant, located at 45525 Route 79 South in Aguanga, has been a local favorite since reopening after a long vacancy a couple of years ago. The eatery may be within the confines of the Rancho California RV Resort but it is also open to the public. The establishment struggled at times, and the Boultons got word that it would soon be closed.
“We sent in a business proposal and decided to do a food tasting for about 20 folks just a few days before Christmas,” Missy Boulton said. “We got a phone call just after New Year’s that they’d like us to come in and run it. They thought it would be a great idea to keep my name recognition, so that’s when the Missy’s Place 15th Hole Bar and Grill name was decided.”
Boulton is no stranger to the restaurant business.
“My ex father-in-law asked me to come work at Ciro’s Italian Restaurant in Anza,” she said. “I grew up in restaurants as my mom was a cook, so I decided to give it a shot. I started out as a busser and moved my way up. I fell in love with the business and more so the customers that became family. I’ve been all over the place – JoAnns in Idyllwild became my heart when I ran it for over five years. I’ve been doing this a little over 20 years now, and it’s just my complete passion – my happy place.”
The restaurant is nestled on the banks of a peaceful pond and there is a spacious patio available for outdoor enjoyment. Inside, the open dining room boasts several TVs with different sports events playing on each one. Patrons can select a comfortable table or scoot up to an intimate bar to enjoy the offerings.
Getting to Missy’s Place 15th Hole Bar and Grill can be somewhat of a challenge to the uninitiated. The RV resort has an entrance on Route 79 South, just south of the Route 371 junction. The long paved drive winds along the hillside and comes into the resort through a sandy wash. To enter the restaurant, you must first stop at the guard shack at the community’s gates. The good-natured attendant will cheerfully direct you to the correct building, which is just past the gates on the left.
Husband Tracy Boulton will be involved with a daily “Honey Do” list, as well as being in charge of preparing the breakfast menu.
“Who would’ve ever thought he would be cooking. He impresses me every day,” Missy Boulton said.
The menu will feature All-American breakfast, lunch and dinner items. There will be a daily salad bar along with her homemade soups.
Menu selections will include, pasta, Angus beef burgers, pork chops, meatloaf, fried chicken, fish, liver and onions and more. Prices are slated to be reasonable and portions famously large and robust.
“We are just sooo excited. This really is the true meaning of never giving up on your dreams. Our family is just so excited and supportive. I think they laugh and say there they go again. I could never do this without having my supportive husband and best friend by my side. He simply pushes me to be a better person today then I was yesterday,” Boulton said.
Missy’s 15th Hole Bar and Grill’s hours will be Monday through Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
