Great food, great prices. Awful Annie's is a wonderful place for breakfast or lunch. The portions are large and can be shared. The restaurant is very clean and the wait staff are friendly.

Been here so many times, used to go to the original place in Old Town Auburn CA. This is the new expanded place just off the freeway, the food is good, but it is noisy because it is normally bustling. The staff is good and friendly and depending on how many in your party will depend on how long it... More

Was there for lunch on a Saturday recently. Going in, I thought "how crowded could they be?". Turns out the answer was "off the charts". Made a can of sardines look like the Sahara desert. I am not at all sure that I have ever witnessed a crush like this. In the face of this onslaught the staff was unruffled,... More

I go to this restaurant at least once a month. We were celebrating a young ladies soon-to-be 17th birthday. What a delightful way to be with friends and my three daughters. Some of us had breakfast and some had lunch. I had a very delicious Bacon Lettuce Tomato Avocado 1/2 sandwich on marbled rye with a very healthy green salad.... More

I've made Awful Annie's the place to take friends coming to visit from out of town. It's an awesome place to eat -- great food, friendly waitresses, and great value to boot. They have a large menu to choose from and they get you your food as fast as they can. (They are very popular so can get pretty busy,... More

Awful Annie's is a must, whether local to Auburn, or passing through along I-80. (Easy to get too off the freeway.) It's impossible to choose one meal from the menu because everything is delicious.

What a wonderful spot for breakfast or lunch. Be prepared to wait on weekends, but it's worth it. I like to indulge in a Bloody Mary because they do them right! The selection of various "Benedicts" is vast and I'm committed to try them all. This trip it was the crab cakes version. My mom had an omelet that she... More

We had brunch here on a Sunday morning and had to wait about 45 minutes, but it was well worth it! The menu is huge and they have so much variety that it took a while for us to order. They have an extensive drink list of multiple types of cocktails, beer, wine, mimosas, etc. They have all the types... More
