Best pancakes I've ever had. This is a real "find" in El Cajon. We've made Izzy's a regular stop time and time again. Whether it's for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (Thursday and Fridays only), we absolutely love this place. The food is outstanding, did I mention the pancakes, and their prices are very reasonable. We also love their baby back... More

When we visited with my family of four, there was a screaming child in the restaurant. The couple next to us got up and left after they ask for boxes for their food. We asked our waitress if she would ask the parent and grandparent to take the screaming child outside. She ignored us. Finally I nicely asked the grandmother... More

What a great meal! Drove from Phoenix, AZ to visit family, was hungry and found this place. We went there and had a great meal. Was nice to eat outside. The service was ok. The portions were large. The food was real hot and cooked to perfection. Will definitely return here.

Not sure why I have never eaten here before. We were close by at breakfast time and read a review that said great ham. Well the reviewer was right. I have Ham n Eggs and the ham was thick and tasty. We have several good places for breakfast in the area. We will eat here again. Would like to try... More

Not only is the service top notch, but the food is terrific as well. Owners, Blaine and Lori, go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome here. Truly a family atmosphere, and add to that the great meals and it makes for a very satisfying dining experience. Whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner (on the evenings they're open),... More

My only complaint is the hours. They are closed on Sunday, open Monday - Wednesday until 2PM, open Thursday & Friday untill 8PM (yea!) and open Saturday... More

Four of us stopped here for breakfast as we left San Diego, heading east. Three of us ordered ham and eggs and one ordered an egg white omelet. The meals were excellent. One of the members of the group called the restaurant a great "mom and pop" place. Extensive breakfast menu with very flavorful, thickly sliced ham. It has a... More
