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.

So much food, the portions are huge. Love this place. Coffee was fresh and hot. Didn't wait at all for a table. I highly recommend this place.

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...

We've been here many times before since we really like it for breakfast. We went here twice on our visit to National City and one was for my birthday. It's hard to describe the amount of food a person gets here for breakfast. An omelet, for example, contains at least 6-8 eggs and is roughly the size of a adult... More

We found this restaurant through a Google search, and we were so glad we did! When we pulled up there was a line out the door (although waiting is always a pain, it's usually a good sign). We were told the wait would only be 15 minutes, and it turned out to only be about 5. The restaurant itself is... More

I have been enjoying this great restaurant for over 40 years. The original location is in Chula Vista. Hands down, this is the best breakfast ever. The portions are huge, food great, service fast and friendly. Lunch and dinner are also excellent. Just discovered the spinach salad on my last visit. A classic eatery for good reasons!

With the help of the waitresses I chose the corner beef and hash omelette. I started on my fourth bite into the omelette when I notice something -... More
