buffet Reviewed by: Ed The staff here are friendly. Food is good value for the price. It is not the best compared to other places but the shrimp, pork ribs and fried rice are worth the trip.

Coalinga gets its first load of Model T cars, about 1914

In the early years of railroading, before the extensive development of oil production in California, the steam locomotives were powered by the burning of coal obtained from the northern foothills of Mount Diablo. The Southern Pacific Railway established the site as a coaling station in 1888, and it was called simply Coaling Station A. Local tradition has it that an official of Southern Pacific made the name more sonorous by adding an a to it.

The first post office was established in 1899. The city incorporated in 1906.

Water

Coalinga's water was so full of minerals, that potable water had to be brought in by railroad in tanker cars from Armona, California. For many years, "Armona Water" was the only drinking water residents could drink. And Coalinga was one of only a few towns in the US that had three taps, one for hot water, one for cold water, and one for drinking water. Finally, in the early 1960s, Coalinga held the first practical demonstration for reverse osmosis (RO), and its Armona water was replaced by RO water.
