Nice breakfast and lunch spot in a sea of fast food drive-throughs. Everything made fresh with owner/chef in the open kitchen. Good soups and signature chili, great Reuben and even a Rachel.They offer a half sandwich with soup or salad at lunch, and daily specials. The room is cheerful with plenty of natural light. Service can be erratic, sometimes very... More

Cute little place. We had a delicious breakfast, but make sure you have time - it took about 45 minutes to be served. Also a little pricey. $29 for omelette, two eggs, bacon and toast, 1 coffee, 1 OJ

Horrible! No wonder it was empty. Little advice: If you're going to microwave everything, you might want to move it behind a wall or something. I got to watch my pre-cooked bacon get wrapped in a brown paper towel (like the kind in a cheap bathroom) and "cooked" on high for 40 seconds. Plus I loved how the menu says... More

The waitress was the only good thing about this place. We were served cold coffee but she offered to brew a new pot so we could warm ours up. Our 3 Breakfasts took owner/chef over an hour to prepare. Only special request was one order use egg whites instead of whole eggs. Waitress said she would ask. Since she never... More

We had decided to stop for a late breakfast on the weekend. As first time diners here, we weren't sure what to expect. The menu featured various items; however, the prices seemed quite high. We chose pancakes as they are one of our favorite breakfast foods. The particular ones that I chose, a mixed berry, sounded interesting. After a few... More

Great food and a Super owner, with a very friendly staff. The food is incredibly delicious . I have been here numerous times and have had a few different meals, and each time it always super. When you leave, you will always go away with a smile and a very "happy" stomach. (Call a few days ahead for the special... More

Breakfast here is a step-above. The wonderful Chef Len makes it personally for you and does not skimp on ingredients or care. So, yes, it might take a wee bit longer than a fast food place but if you are at Papa Gallo---you are smart enough to NOT be a fast food breakfast eater! I always have poached eggs and... More

Went here twice in one week. First time breakfast; second time lunch. The pancakes are good. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere. Lunch...not as good. Putting fried fish on iceburg lettuce, tomatoes, and overcooked flour tortillas does not make fish tacos--really just a bland mess. The fish was fresh--but there was almost no flavor. Also, about two dollars per entree... More
