FAMILY FAVORITE!!

This if one of my sons favorite places to eat when they come into town! Large portions, great food, good service, and a fun environment. Only open for breakfast and lunch. The omelets are amazing and they are huge. You name it and they will put it in an omelet!

Took the family there on a vacation earlier this month. Food is just as good now as it was 20 years ago! Huge portions of delicious food. A bit pricey, but definitely worth the trip. Can't beat it.

The portions were not only delicious but GINORMOUS as well. Service was fantastic. A little gem tucked away in the desert.

I like be this place. My kids love prime rib so what better place to go to but crazy ottos. Their servings are big. It's a very busy place especially on Sunday's. My favorite is their liver and onions dinner. I recommend this place.

Average food, with the usual suspects. You are provided a huge portion, so there is a bang for you buck, but nothing special.

They have built their reputation on the amount of food they serve, but everything tastes the same. The pancakes taste like the hash browns that taste like the patty melt. Based on how popular they are they may have been real good at one time, but nothing special about it anymore. Also, they are a little pricey for what they... More

Lots of big portions, excellent service! Plenty of parking, can be a bit on the loud side. Dress casual, food is hot, great coffee.

My daughter and I love to find out of the way places with great food and atmosphere and Crazy Otto's is the winner. I had a burger and fries and she tried the kids chicken pieces. We were both happy with our meals and service. It's a fun stop with food that is reasonable and good.
