Packed at 10am which is a good indicator of a great place! Prices are similar to those at other Iarge name breakfast places. Servers checked on us several times and were helpful.

This is a favorite local spot for residents of South Bay and believe me.....the servings are huge! The mini breakfast I could not even finish! Omelets are huge so pay the fee to split a meal because there's enough for at least two people. Lots of selection. There's a wait during peak times.

I love eating here real early in the morning on the weekends before 8am because it gets busy after that. They serve you a lot of food and the prices are reasonable! I love to get the mini breakfast which has 2 pancakes, 2 sausage or bacon and 2 eggs if they are scrambled. I have been coming here with... More

They serve generous portions, and have a good variety of things not often found on restaurant menus. And kudos to them - not a television in the place. Hurrah!

I had breakfast here with my wife yesterday, staying nearby. It was very busy and quite popular. My wife had the spice pancakes and the amount of food was amazing, she got a huge portion. I, on the other hand, was a little less happy. I got the corn beef hash and I got such a small portion of hash... More

I have seen this place for years but have never tried it. It appeared to be very popular on Friday morning. I tried the corned beef hash and it great. You can definitely tell that it was freshly made and didn't come out of a can. Plus the pancakes were some of the best that I have had.

Stopped by this place because I was recommended to by a friend and I'm glad I did! the food was really good. I got one of the biggest omelets I've seen in a while with potatoes. Fantastic. You can't beat the quality of the food or the price.

I've been going to this place since I was a kid. Huge portions for extremely reasonable prices. I have had most of the menu and everything is delicious. This place serves amazing specialty pancakes and waffles. My favorite is the Banana Pecan. They also serve mexican breakfast, as well as lunch and dinner. They have great homemade salsa that you...
