It is very close to where we live so that makes it handy. Breakfast is delicious. Prices are really inexpensive. Service is great.

Yes, this restaurant reminds me of the late 1950s or early 1960s. The prices are low and the portions are equally small. I selected the breakfast special. It was one very flat, very small pancake, two tiny strips of bacon and what appeared to be a tiny egg all for. $3.95. I'm not impressed.

We mostly have breakfast here which is always great, with attention paid to the way you want you food prepared. The pretty much standard selections are "tasty"and certainly NOT OVERPRICED! We usually stick to the salad plates for lunch such as grilled chicken salad, etc but occasionally get the "tasty burgers" which can be addictive. In closing I feel a... More

If you thought White Castle was okay... You'll be in Nirvana here! The Owner has their beef custom ground every day. The flavor and the love that goes into this place will be discovered when you imbibe in their "Tasty Burgers". This is a must stop when you're in Greater Sarasota! We've enjoyed this place since 1989!!!

Saunter into Tasty Home Cookin’ and you’re confronted with blandness (the décor – not the food). I feel like I’m eating in my parents’ rec room and it’s 1972. Rather than splurge on the ‘look’ of the dining room THC prefers to concentrate on culinary magic in the kitchen. It works! I’ve been eating there for 11 years and it’s... More

I have met friends at Tasty for brealfast & lunch many times over the years. Service is great, food is good at a great value. Look for the daily special.

David was our server and I heard him mention he has been there 7 years. I had number 13, it was chicken fried steak hash browns 2 eggs for $5. It was all I needed.... More

The staff is very friendly. I used to eat there with my aunt and I still have the same food. I had a grilled cheese sandwich in rye bread. It was wonderful

My new favorite place. Good home style meals at an outstanding price. Fried chicken, stuffed meatloaf are my favorites. also the Breakfast Bowl on Sunday was delicious. Where else can you get an entrée, soup and vegetable with dessert for $8 or $9.95? The puddings are outstanding. The owners are gracious and the help is attentive
