We have never had a bad meal here. The Mickey Mouse pancakes for the kids are huge- easily shared between two kids. I love the French toast and my husband loves the meat skillet. Meal portions are generous and we've always had great service as well.

Excellent food and service but be prepared to wait to be seated especially on weekends. Two locations owned by local.

I too was excited to go here in light of the great reviews, but was not overly impressed. I got the Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs. It was a good, solid meal. However, nothing about it made it any better than what you might get at any other breakfast place. Like others have said, the service was excellent. Really friendly... More

I was excited to go here in light of the great reviews, but was not impressed. I got the Grand Marnier French Toast which included great toppings on hard bread that seemed to be stale. My wife was equally unimpressed with the chicken and waffles. Perhaps we just got the wrong thing. The service was excellent. Really friendly folks.

We go to Burnt toast on a regular basis, every couple months. The food is always fresh. We usually order biscuits and gravy, belgium waffle, and sometimes sausage eggs and pancakes. This past time though i saw the specials board. It had sweet potato and chorizo (mexican sausage) hash. I now have a even tougher choice on what to eat.

Food is just okay. Not really worth the wait. Also it's VERY loud in there when your trying to talk or hear someone. Tables are packed close as well. Higher prices for breakfast.

The food. Here was very good, huge portions so ask for a take home box. The eggs and pancakes are very good and they have a lot of specialty pancake/waffle breakfast options. They are always busy but worth the wait if you have too.

Thank phrjeff
