This will be a new go-to b-fast place for me when in SLO. Portions are giant. Order a single meal and split it. The breakfasts are super delicious and available at all hours. Biscuits are the best I can remember having. Service was good.

Stopped here for breakfast on a Sunday. Easy to get seating at 9:30am , but by 10:30 the line started. Breakfast was very good. Largest portions I have ever been served. I suggest splitting a meal.

Always a great breakfast, never a small portion of food, I have never left here unsatisfied, and I've been here multiple times over 2 decades.

Meals are huge. Be prepared to take home a doggie bag. Better still, split with someone if you can. Very good!

I like this place for breakfast. Breakfast is not cheap but you do get substantial servings that let you forget the price. But the $13.50 burger is a bit over the top. The burger is just a burger with the onion, tomato, pickle and other...More
