I love this place for breakfast. I pick breakfast places based on the breakfast potatoes they serve. I consider Hash Browns to be boring, but thin sliced Home Fries are my very favorite. The ones served here are among the best I've had.

The former owner of Ken's had a friendlier place, better food and faster service. We miss Ken! But with that said it is an OK place for breakfast. We go here many Sundays after church. The new owner/manager is very nice.

They have the best breakfast special - just Monday-Friday, till 11am. 3.99 - 2 eggs, bacon, sausage, or ham, American fries, toast, jelly. Always fresh and big portions for the money too. The owner and wait staff are always friendly as well!

Used to go there when Ken owned the place...was always good. The new owner has made some changes to the inside of the place, but the food is still good. I will go back again for sure.

I consider myself a foodie. I've eaten at many restaurants, including 5 star all the way to greasy spoons. I consider this place to be a Coney Island type of restaurant. My overall experience with my first visit here was terrible. I came here for breakfast because of the reviews on trip advisor. I walked in and was promptly seated.... More

Ok.... Ok.... There are sometimes long lines. Proof positive that the food is great. I've been here many times and have always enjoyed a great breakfast. Very generous portions which have always been delicious. Ken is usually on hand to greet the customers.
