Great food and service

This is one of our "must go" places when we visit family in Chula Vista. The servings are very large, and the staff is willing to bring extra plates to that you can share. Service is very fast, but you don't feel rushed to finish and "give up your seat." A fun, happy place to eat a very good... read more

Food is excellent. Service was lightning fast. I asked, then waitress (Laylani) told me what to order. Country Scramble, potatoes and pancakes were delicious. I am a big ole boy from Oklahoma and I was only able to consume about 85% of it. We will eat here again. Do not let the diner's decor scare you. This place is all... More

We ate here twice during our vacation and not one of us finished our food. Huge portions of excellent food. Quick friendly service. You have to eat here if you are within driving distance.

This place is the best for breakfast. Always fresh, delicious and plenty of it. The portions are generous, their chilaquiles taste like home and the servers are always super friendly.

Might have a bit of a wait. Definitely worth it. The quality of the food is outstanding. The quantity of food for the price is atrocious. I can eat off my meal 3 times or share.

Casual, comfortable and delicious for so many years that you can't go wrong here. Sometimes there is a wait which is really a good sign that people keep going back for all the right reasons. This is the breakfast place where locals go for great food.

I have never had a bad meal or service. The portions ate large so I do have left overs. The customer service has always been excellent.

From the gigantic plates to the awesome service, this is by far the best breakfast place I've been. Order the corned beef hash and eggs. Homemade and so good!
