Everything is large and delicious. It is hard not to overeat here but worth that super stuffed feeling. The sweet potato pancakes are an absolute must have. I had breakfast but the lunches passing by looked just as abundant and wonderful.

Parking is on the street. It's not a high traffic area. I've never had to walk far.

As I recall the prices were on the moderate side. Probably under $10 each for a breakfast.
