It is a typical 1980's style restaurant. Large menu selection. We are always looking for breakfast places that offer a big variety of choices and this place certainly fits the bill. The food is very good, and they are generous with their servings. The staff is friendly, the service quick. It holds a good size crowd and by the time... More

We have been here several times and it is always a winner. The eggs benedict is delicious, as is the pot roast. The service is efficient and the prices are more than fair. You will not leave hungry!

This was our first time at Poor Richard's despite having lived in Plano for a long time. My breakfast -- eggs benedict -- lived up to the hype. Huge portion for only $7.99 and it came with a large portion of home fires which were seasoned and fried up just right. Long line on Sunday after church, but as others... More

12/31/2016 My husband and I decided to try Poor Richard's for breakfast due to all the hype online reviews. It was located about 20 minutes from our hotel and in a strip center where there was an Aldi and a Thrift store. When we arrived (10:38ish) there was a line but as the reviews stated it did move fast.(est.15 min... More

The breakfast menu is incredible and the prices are very reasonable. Everything tastes like you made it at home. Do not be scared off by a long line at the door because they seat you very quickly. The restaurant is very large and they can seat many people quickly.

A great place to have a generous meal. PR only serves breakfast and lunch. We had breakfast and found the staff friendly and prompt. The menu is quite extensive and very reasonably priced. The food was excellent. The surroundings are not elegant but are spacious, clean, and nicely done. The decor reminds me of East coast diner. Nany of the... More

Fast, friendly service. It was packed & there was a fairly long line waiting to be seated. We were seated in 15 min. Very popular place. The pace of the service was bordering on 'frantic' perhaps due to the long waiting line. The coffee was great and topped-up three times. My order was basic: scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and all...

this is a good breakfast place. the service is excellent, the food is very good. beverages are kept filled by dedicated beverage servers. I've been here several times, weekdays aren't as crowded as weekends. you can expect a wait on weekends.

This place just serves breakfast and lunch. I had Chicken Fried Steak plate with mashed potatoes and black eyed peas. Definitely good comfort food. Place was packed. Definitely a must try.
