Varied menu. Salad bar too. I like the chili. Breakfast is good to. An easy place with kids and so much better then a cheap drive thru.

We have had family meals there many times over the last few years. Every time it is just a little wait to order and they bring food to our table. The food is always good with healthy portions. The staff aren't rude, but sometimes not always friendy.

Great chorizo burrito and breakfast sandwich. The place is clean and fresh. I love all the windows, it feels more comfortable and open. I would recommend the breakfast. I can't speak about the rest of the menu yet, but I plan to try more.

When I walked in the door, nobody greeted me. I stepped up to the counter and, without a smile, was asked what I wanted. It was almost noon, but I was able to order a breakfast burrito. The order taker asked if I wanted anything else. I told her a soft drink, and she gave me a cup and a... More

The proper preparation for making hash brown potatoes is to cut potatoes and cook them. Nobody does that anymore. Everyone buys frozen "hashbrowns" and cooks those. So, in order to properly prepare FROZEN hashbrowns, what are you supposed to do? Well, the answer is that you have to take them out of the freezer and let them thaw. If you... More

I looked at several review type websites about this place trying to find out what their hours are for breakfast (answer - all day, every day). However they all have a link to a menu that is not at all like the actual - at least for breakfast. The choices are MUCH more limited than listed here. They have several... More

We have been eating at John's Place for years. It is a great family friendly spot that serves up a tasty traditional breakfast for a reasonable price. Orders are taken at a counter, then served promptly at the table. The service is always helpful and courteous as well. Lunches are great with a good variety including mediterranean selections (try the... More
