Normally we have a pleasant experience at Perkins. This is an exception. Once the order was placed it took nearly 3/4 of an hour to receive our food and they completely omitted on meal. I had to ask 3 times for a knife to cut my steak with. We asked the waiter why it took so long and he could... More

Surprised to see seniors start at 55! Wife had soup/salad combo and I had the patty melt. Food was fine and store very clean. Great variety of American food choices and easy access to I-80.

Stopped for dinner at random, and ended up at this restaurant. We were so out of it I had to ask the waitress what state we were in. The restaurant was busy and the staff was a little slow, but the food was first rate. I had roast beef, which was fork tender and very flavorful. My wife had fish... More

I got the build a breakfast for $8.79 which included 2 eggs, hash browns, biscuits and corned beef hash. For me, it doesn't get any better than that. Service was good and all the food very tasty.
