Heading North on I-5 you can see Mr. T's, take the next exit. Keep turning right until you find Fir Street. Breakfast was the never-ending coffee refill, which is hard to find these days.

At Mr T's the Food is great and you get lots of food, well worth the price. They are only open for Breakfast & Lunch. The omelettes are wonderful and you will be very surprised at the size of the biscuit if you get that, they are huge.

Very good breakfast. Lots of food! Everything we have had for breakfast has been good. Stopped by once for lunch and food was OK. Definitely will stick to breakfast in the future. Plates are over loaded with food. My husband ordered half and order of biscuits and gravy and could not finish it. My order of Egg Benedict were good.

Had the special this morning, chicken fried steak omelet with country gravy. Yum!!! The biscuits are amazing! The size of a huge cinnamon roll. The coffee is never ending. Great find. You won.t be disappointed. My husband had oatmeal that he really enjoyed.

We stopped in right at lunch and waited 20 minutes for a table. This restaurant is worth the wait! It has a home style feel in a small setting with attentive staff and amazing food.
