Breakfast

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

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

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.

As always, great service, big portions at a great price. Try to come at least once a month. The chorizo and eggs with Potatoes are the bomb. Extra crispy bacon on the side. Yummy. Also the biscuits and gravy are a meal it in self.

The portions are very large, and the prices are reasonable. We enjoyed the memorabilia on the walls. Waitresses were very helpful, too. My favorite dish is the corned beef hash.

Most certainly the best breakfast you will every have, anywhere. Locals know this place, if you are visiting you will pull up outside and say "What am I doing here???" because it certainly is a little hole-in-the-wall place, but it's been here for decades and once you order breakfast you will know why. Portions are HUGE, be sure to have... More
