Huge portions and best sausage patty in the AV. The servers have been there forever and can be a long wait as bikers drive many miles for the delicious food. For the lady who wrote things were too greasy and she felt diabetes and heart attacks coming on after eating there twice, saw them serving egg white and tomato slices... More

We visited Crazy Otto's three times on our visit to Palmdale. The first time we did not know about sharing or the senior menu. The portions are huge and we ate off the leftovers for two more days. The next visit we were wiser and shared. There are coupons in the local paper for 2 for 1 deals. Service was... More

Although this restaurant serves in the big American style food. It tends to be too greasy. I can feel myself consuming diabetes and future heart attacks and I've only been there twice. Although I do enjoy the fact that it feels like that typical country-family-American style atmosphere. I would say if you're really hungry and are in need of some... More

We usually make a point of eating at Crazy Otto's at least once when we are in Lancaster, usually at the Avenue I location. We went there after church on Sunday morning and it was busy and service a little slow but some of that was our fault. After we were seated my son called and decided to join us... More

I have been making annual pilgrimages to Lancaster to visit my mother for years. She educated me on Crazy Otto and his crazy big omelets and fluffy biscuits. Now it is a must visit on this trips. It is so much I can skip lunch, or shared with other family members.

Big portions, good quality and friendly fast service that can't be beat for breakfast in the AV. Great atmosphere and kid friendly.

Came here with family because it was supposed to be outstanding. It is true the portions are larger- but so what when it is burnt (my corn beef hash -- (corn beef was non-existent) breakfast) and my wife's steak . Very, very, over rated. For what you get and the quality of the food, it is way overpriced. Time to... More

One thing about Crazy Ottos is you won't leave hungry. The portions are ridiculous but in my opinion not very good. Greasy food and a clientele that leaves a lot to be desired. If you want quantity over quality this place is for you.

They have amazing food and huge portions. If you like pancakes and/or omelets you should come here. One omelet can be two meals :)
